    I normally plug my new MBP in at night before I go to bed so it can charge over night. Is this going to cause any issues? I know the charger is supposed to stop charging (when the light turns green) and maybe just do a trickle charge from there. Is this method of charging okay, or should I be disconnecting it from the charger as soon as it is done charging?

    Thanks for the info! I don't want to cook my new MBP before I get a few years out of enjoying it.

    Same thing I do, There is an actual battery calibration process, I occasionally do it. There are some who say it is unnecessary see whats right for you.

    Cheers

    I believe the calibration aspect of things is just for aesthetics to make the charge/time remaining meter more accurate. I need to do this on mine though just to try it out.
