    I got my MBP about a month and a half ago, and I have been using it almost everyday. I mostly leave it plugged in, and sometimes run on battery power and get about 8 hours out of the battery, without calibration.

    1. Is this ok? Do i need to calibrate?

    2. Is it too late to calibrate?

    3. How do I even calibrate? :D

    8 hours sounds normal and calibration will require you to drain your battery until its completely dead and thats stress on the battery. the battery is new so there's probably no problem with the inaccuracy of the battery reading. You can calibrate but it wont give you anymore battery life. all youre doing at this point is stressing out the battery.
