As an example, browsing the web with both Safari or Brave will use 1% every few minutes. Sometimes even more. I found a Youtube video...

    I'm using a MBP 2020 13 inch for about five months and just noticed the full charge capacity has dropped to 92.5% while the cycle count is just 12. Is this normal?

    I'm pretty disappointed with the MBP 16" battery health situation.

    So many people -myself included- report that their 16" battery health is less than 100% out of the box. Now that'd be okay if it was 99 or even 98. But for most, it's 95% or even less. Now that's all fine and dandy, discharge and charge and let it calibrate, it'll be fine and report correct...
