    re: calibration

    The technique of battery calibration is really only necessary to make sure that the estimated battery life is accurately representative of what power is actually left in your battery.

    Recalibration is only necessary as your battery ages. Lithium ion batteries deteriorate over time due to heat and oxidation, making your battery capacity less and less with every cycle.

    Below are links to apple's info about your battery.
