    Alo,

    Stupid q perhaps, but...

    When removing the battery, (as not to overcharge etc), how best/safely to do so, i.e. are there any pitfalls to be aware of?

    Cheers

    Doesn't the mbp run slower without the battery?

    just leave it in. youll get full cpu utilisation then. leaving plugged in for londg periods of time is perfectly fine as the battery is trickle charging while fully charged i.e. goes from 100%-95% back to 100%. just make sure you calibrate your battery every month. constantly charging and recharging is bad as a lithium battery likes to be near fully charged and charge cycles are the ultimate killer of a battery.

    the only downside to this is the heat coming from the MBP which will decrease its life span. install fan control or SMC fan control to get your MBP temps around 50C.
