laptop batteries

Hi
Is it still the case that these batteries need to be "worked"?  What I mean is that they work better if they're charged and then discharged on a regular basis?

Thanks.  I suspect he uses it plugged in most of the time, so I'll recommend using it on battery at least once a week, and then recharging.
