    Hi everyone,

    Is it possible to increase the battery health on a mac once it is below a certain level? Kinda seems like I'm answering my own question, but my battery health hit a low of 83% when I was gaming on my windows partition unplugged, and I thought I inflicted permanent damage to my battery. But recently, I read somewhere that I should keep it plugged in at 100%, and the health has definitely increased. It used to be in the 89-91% range, but it's now at 92-94%. Is this just a mere placebo effect? :p

    There is no reliable way of measuring a battery, all the apps etc are just taking a guess based on various parameters and this can shift over time. With your battery usage (based on a cycle a day) it'll last 3-4 years and need replacing there is pretty much nothing you can do about that. If you used it a little less (leave it plugged in when you can) you may get an extra six months to a year from it.

    Turn off the percentage indicator.

    Delete Coconut Battery(or whatever you're using to measure the battery health).

    Plug your laptop in when you can and run it off of the battery when you need to.

    Enjoy using your computer and don't worry about the battery.
