    Hi

    I have a MacBook pro 13" and i'm going on holiday for two weeks. I will
    not be taking my MacBook and it will be unused for that period.

    My question is should i :
    A = charge the battery fully and leave it unplugged
    B = leave it plugged in charging for 2 weeks
    C = i think i read about having it half charged and unplugged for storage.

    Thanks in advance guys

    :eek:

    I'd charge it full, then when you get back, drain it completely. The loss in battery life by user generally comes from the lack of stimulating the electron cells, which is simply draining them and re-energizing them.

    Definitely don't keep it plugged in the entire 2 weeks.
