    Default Prevent Macbook Pro from charging

    Hi, i recently came across this interesting post where one member says that by covering the middle pin on the MagSafe 2 chargers it will disable charging but still powering the macbook.
    This is great because i can preserve my macbook battery life and still use my mac normally.

    my question is, is it safe?
