I found instructions about MacBook battery care, but it made me confused. I received my MacBook Pro yesterday. After unboxing, I used it for some time and then I fully charged the battery. I will be using this laptop as my primary device.

So, my question is, if I use my MacBook about 7-8 hours a day with the charger plugged in, will it be harmful for the battery? What is the recommended way?


To get the most out of your MacBook Pro's battery, follow the Notebook Battery advice from Apple: unplug and use your battery until empty about once a month, then charge back up to full.

If you need help following Apple's advice, use Battery Guardian; it is free and will remind you when to deplete your battery.
