    No, you don't need to do that.

    Some will say you should run the battery run completely once a month so that the battery meter will stay calibrated. I think that advice comes from apple, too.

    Yes, there was a poll about that. Didn't you just start it yourself?. So you are surprised about this poll that you just started yourself?. I don"t get this.
