    I think Apple said that there is a chip that regulates the current that goes to the battery and when its full, the chip will cut the power to preserve the battery life from diminishing. It is why this battery has 3 time the life of other batteries. However, I'll treat it like I treated my old mac battery. Drain it completely and when it's charged, take the adapter off. My old mac's battery life is excellent after 2+ yrs. How much do you get out of it usually? 3 to 4.5 hours?
