    I have a 15" mbp (2012 non-retina) and I really don't want it to become like my old laptop and have to run it through the mains socket all the time. How can I keep my battery healthy and giving me 7hrs of battery life for the next year or two?

    2012 15" Macbook Pro, i7, 8GB RAM, 750 HDD @ 7200RPM, Anti-Glare.

    Run on battery whenever you need to and plug it in whenever you can. You can plug or unplug at any time, regardless of the charged percentage. Just make sure you don't run on AC power all the time, as your battery needs to be used regularly to stay healthy. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:
