Forum Question: Prolonging battery life

hi, I’m new to the ‘Mac World’. just one quick question, i use my macbook pro most of the time either at home or office plug in to the power supply, will this shorten the life span of the battery?
Do i have to ‘drain’ the battery before plugging into the power source?

thanks

    Just keep your MacBook plugged in when you are near power, and use the battery when you have to. Let the sophisticated battery management hardware and software take care of the rest. It can be good to drain the battery occasionally, like once per month or so. But that is debatable.
