    Whats the best way to prolong the battery life of my White Macbook 2010 model?

    Currently according to Istat Pro my battery health is at 95% with 32 cycles.

    Ive read about battery calibration however according to apple...
    "Current Apple portable computer batteries are pre-calibrated and do not require the calibration procedure outlined in this article."

    The most info i could find searching is...
    "Apple does not recommend leaving your portable plugged in all the time. An ideal use would be a commuter who uses her notebook on the train, then plugs it in at the office to charge. This keeps the battery juices flowing."

    Any other tips?

    Thanks!

    Your battery should be calibrated once a month for best performance, yes the batteries come calibrated so your first month is already covered.

    Replacing a battery in a polycarbinate macbook isn't too difficult or expensive so if calibrating is too much of a hassle don't worry about it.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
