    Anyone install Coconut battery? Are you getting difference reads outs from Apples battery compared to Coconut on the menu bar. I'm getting completely different results and was wondering if anyone else is having this issue.
    I wonder if apple "tweaked" the update while removing the time remaining function to project longer battery life then there really is? Screen Shot 2016-12-27 at 1.07.55 AM.png

    I think it has something to with Apples indicator is 0-100% of design capacity, and Coconuts indicator uses the full charge capacity of the battery. My total capacity is 104%, and when it drops below 100% thats when Apples indicator is starting.

    I think the answer is simple, both compute the percentage differently.
