    A few weeks back I took a look at my battery health on Coconut battery. My Mac has only been 18 weeks old and the health percentage was stunningly low at 89%!
    I've searched inside out the internet and found no way to repair my battery health.
    So ever since then I have taken two methods hoping that I can regain the lost battery health:
    • Shutdown my mac regularly instead of put to sleep
    • and only charge my mac when the battery percentage is lower than 20%

    Over a few weeks time the health has bounced back to 94%!!

    But I still have a question, is this temporary or permanent?

    p.s. for some reason the coconut battery log isn't orded in date, sorry.

    There has been little to no change to your battery's health as a result of your actions.
