My daughter has a new 2018 MBP and it has done 83 charge cycles over the last 6 weeks. She is doing quite a lot in Maya, which seems to drain it pretty quickly and she is running Mojave. According to what I read somewhere an Apple battery is only good for 1000 cycle charges, which doesn't sound like a lot of life at this rate. I've seen wildly conflicting reports on best practices to ensure the battery lasts a long time, so I'm wondering if those who have used an MBP for a long time have any thoughts on how best to preserve the battery and hopefully get a few years of life, despite regular usage. I almost wish the battery could be removed, so the machine could be run purely off the mains, however that isn't possible.
