Can I use my Macbook Air 13" mid 2013 with plugging charger even at 100 % battery full charge?

I can't decide whether using My Macbook Air 13" mid 2013 with charging power adapter connected even though it is fully charged Or using Macbook Air with unplugging charger after fully charged. Please advice me to maintain my Macbook's battery at good condition.

It will not hurt it as long as you do not leave it on the charger for an extensive period of time (say, days).

I am useless with all the macbook jargon i have seen in other posts so need some simple help. I am operating on Lion 10.7.5. I have read that nwer software could help but i would like to know for certain before purcahsing the latest software.
    Thank You

    Yes, but you must update to OS X Mavericks using the Mac App Store. When you do, you will see this icon in the menubar:
    I hope I solved your question.

  • Macbook Air 11" mid 2013 battery

    My macbook air 11" mid 2013 serial # C02KTARJF5N8 is showing only 4:30 hrs on the battery meter at the top on a full charge and is advertized to last for 9 hr

    I would suggest going into the apple logo, selecting about this mac, more info, then system rpoert, from there you will see power. Click on this and It will show a charge remaining and cycle count, ring apple with this info and they will tell you if theres a problem straight away. It will alsow show the condition and you will find out more info there. Also if your running RAM heavy apps this will effect battery life, but if theres a fault you will see it there. Any issues ring apple and they will tell you if theres an issue hope this helps

  • Can I use my macbook air to view video from my camcorder

    I have a Panasonic HDC S9 HD digital vide camera, which has a mini HDMI port to coonect to an external monitor to view playback directly from the camera
    I have a Macbook Air 13" bought 5 months ago
    I have bought a thunderbolt to HDMI cable and have used that to connect the Air to the video camera via HDMI
    But I dont see how to see the playback from the camera on the air.
    Any ideas?
    I am hoping that I am not about to be told that the Air will only export video via the thunderbolt port and will not allow video IN to show on the Air screen... please help?
    Many thanks

    Thanks SP
    But I need to do something more immediate than that.
    One of the things my partner does is to advise her clients on their presentation skills. So she wants to video them doing a presnettation to her, and then immediatley play it back so they can both look at it whilst she critiques it.
    There is no time to transfer video files and move between aplications.
    If we connect the video camer via HDMI to the TV, we can play back clips on the TV directly from the camera - no need for data transfers
    What I want to do is use the Air as the TV monitor for this playback so she can do this on client site in any room with her own equipment - not needing a TV
    I had hoped that buying the thunderbolt to HDMI lead would enable the Air to act as the out put monitor
    But I cannot see how to get that to work

  • Can I use a macbook air for the screen when using a mac mini?

    No. That feature is only available on iMacs.

  • Hi, can i use my macbook air as a display for my PS3?

    I want to connect my PS3 to my macbook air as its display.  Is it possible?
    If it is. what cable do i need?

    It can actually be done, yes. You just need an application called "type2phone", which is available in the Mac App Store. Note that it does cost $5 (kinda steep for a novelty).

  • Can I use the MacBook Air Superdrive as an external CD reader?

    Simply put my MBP's optical drive is shot and I don't have the £200 odd that is needed to repair it. So for now I've considered an external option and was told that I could use the MBA superdrive. However on plugging in, nothing happened, attempted to put in the disc and it was like there was no power in it.
    Does anyone know whether it can be used as an external option or is the MBP finicky and will only read one drive at a time?

    No, the Air Superdrive will not work for you. Sigh, i could have saved you the trouble of wasting money.
    What you need, and what would work better is a Lacie Portable Firewire DVD+/-RW drive, which only costs £99 (including VAT or £85.02 ex. VAT, i assume you are in the U.K), and plus it also comes bundled with Toast 8 Titanium.
    Go here and check it out .

  • Can I use my MacBook Air as a keyboard on my iMAC?

    My new iMAC arrived with a USB keyboard that is dead. Bad USB ports ruled out, until I receive the new USB keyboard can I use the MBAir as a keyboard? If so, how? thanks.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Understood, Airbook & iMac both computers. No Apple store around just resellers, defective keyboard being replaced by Apple via mail. Appreciate your help.

  • Can I use the macbook air superdrive with my non server mac mini?

    I recently removed the optical super drive from my early 2009 mac mini to switch to a 2 HD setup.  I have an opportunity to get a macbook air superdrive (external) for a really good deal, but I am unsure whether or not it will work.  The specs say that it will work with a min that has no optical drive, but does it matter if I removed the drive myself instead of buying the server version of the mini?

    Ahhh, you did not say that you don't have one yet. Perhaps you should csll an Apple vendor in your area and ask. Although it is supposed to work with a Mini, I don't know about a Mini from 2009 since the optical drive was not released until the 2010 MBA came out, I believe.

  • How come my Macbook Air 11inch mid 2013 is running very slow?

    I recently bought it new, then couple months later, the fan would play very loudly, and everything went slow and laggy. I checked activity monitor and it says kernel_task is taking up a lot. Please let me know if there are any ways to make my macbook run back to normal, thank you!

    The kernel is using excessive processor cycles. Below are some possible causes for the condition.
    When it gets high temperature readings from the hardware, or low voltage readings from the battery of a MacBook, the kernel may try to compensate by interrupting the processor(s) to slow them down and reduce power consumption. This condition can be due to:
    ☞ a buildup of dust on the logic board
    ☞ high ambient temperature
    ☞ a worn-out or faulty battery in a portable
    ☞ the malfunction of a cooling fan, a temperature sensor, a voltage sensor, or some other internal component
    Note that if the problem is caused by a sensor, there may be no actual overheating or undervoltage.
    If the computer is portable, test with and without the AC adapter connected. If kernel_task hogs the processor only on AC power, charging is causing the machine to heat up. That behavior may be normal for some models. CPU usage should drop when charging is complete.
    Apple Diagnostics or the Apple Hardware Test, though not very reliable, is sometimes able to detect a fault. For more thorough hardware testing, make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or go to another authorized service provider.
    If nothing is wrong with the hardware, then whatever you can do to improve cooling may help.
    Installed software
    User-installed software that includes a device driver or other kernel code may thrash the kernel. That category includes virtualization software, such as Parallels and VMware, as well as most commercial "anti-virus" products. Some system-monitoring applications, such as "iStat," can also contribute to the problem. You can test for this possibility by completely disabling or removing the software according to the developer's instructions, or starting in safe mode. Note, however, that disabling a system modification without removing it or testing in safe mode may not be as easy as you think.
    Corrupt NVRAM or SMC data
    Sometimes the problem is cleared up by resetting the NVRAM or the SMC.
    External display
    Connecting an external LCD display to some MacBook Pro models while the lid is open may cause this issue. If applicable, test by closing the lid or disconnecting the display. You might get better results with a newer LED display.

  • My Macbook Air 11" (mid 2013 upgraded with Yosemite 10.10.1) freezes at 30% or 50% when booting.

    I have tried SMC and PRAM resets at boot up but still have the problem.
    I can start in safe mode OK.
    Any ideas welcome.

    Thanks Ogelthorpe here is the report:
