    Is it safe for me to charge my MacBook while it is in use? Will it drain my battery life?

    If you were to utilize the Forum Search, you would find that it is ideal to keep the system plugged in at all times, so you do not waste battery cycles. It will take longer to charge while using it, but it will not damage the battery.

    100% safe - it's also the most commonly used power setup - because people like to save their battery for when they REALLY need it.
