    Hello,

    So I've heard people talking about things like coconut battery, battery health 1 and 2, but which ones the best?

    Which one should I download? I saw in the App Store - battery health 2 and it his support for the touchbar! But it has very few reviews - is it any good from the original battery health 1 (which has tons of reviews).

    The lack of reviews on the battery health 2 makes me skeptical as the whether it's any good/if anyones using it?

    No such thing as a good battery app they all estimate poorly based on what. The computer is doing at the time.

    Just don't use one, charge it when you can, use it on battery when you can't, it's a laptop that's why you bought it!!!

    Tip of the day - battery app also eats battery, so don't use any;)

    It only uses a tiny amount of battery though - so it doesn't really make a significant difference

    Activity monitor is more power hungry than most battery apps. But you have a point.
