  • Best Answer:

    The MacBook Air laptop is shipped with the battery fully charged. It's usually arrives at your house around 85-95% charge due to charge leakage (nothing to worry about). You don't have to fully drain your battery prior to charging however you should aim to have at least one cycle per month (drop to < 5% then charge to 100%) to maximise your battery life.
