How do I calibrate my 13" Macbook battery?
I've had my white Macbook for years but haven't calibrated the battery in awhile. I was looking up how to do it and found 2 different options. The first, which is the one I used to do, was to fully charge it, use it on the battery until I drain the battery and it goes to sleep, plug it in and I'm done.
But I just saw another way and I'm not sure which to use. This way is to be used for newer models. This one has me charge it to 100%, use it for 2 hours with it's plugged in then drain the battery until it goes to sleep. But then it says to either turn it off or let it sleep for at least 5 hours, then plug it in and charge it again.
I have never heard of this last thing and I'm not sure what keeping it sleeping 5 hours does. My computer is for recreational use so it doesn't have to be at peak performance but it's pretty slow and draining fast right now.
