I recently got the new MacBook Pro 2018 and would like to look after the battery better as I need it for university and would keep it for at least 3 years.
I understand that they are lithium-ion batteries and have a recommended max cycle counts of 1,000. A cycle count is counted as charging it x%, discharging x% and charging x% (if I remember).
If I were to keep the MacBook Pro on permanent charge, I will not have any extra cycle counts. However, would this cause any damage to the computer or not? I also think I read somewhere (a few years ago) about batteries breaking in (just like an engine). If this does happen, how long would this take?
If it helps, I have the 15".
