new ibook battery

Message #1 - Posted 2003/06/30 - Vet

I just bought a new ibook to use it at home and in my office. my question is: which is the best method in order to protect the ibook battery? i know that if the ibook is always pluged, it is not good for its battery. is it safe to use the ibook without the battery? (take the battery out) and recharge the battery once every month? (this is a trick that works in wintel laptops)
thank you in advance
