    From what I understand, just run the battery down once a month or so

    Just keep it plugged in and recondition the battery monthly like he said, and you're all set. Thats what I do.

    I use mine solely as a desktop so far, so in addition to the monthly calibration I also unplug it once a week and use it to 75 % charge or thereabouts.

    HTH.
