There are three ways your laptop is likely to die.
- You can drop it.
- can crash.
- La batterie s’use.
Battery wear is a real problem for laptop owners. Batteries are consumables. A battery is a component built into a computer that can determine the lifespan of a laptop.
There was a time when it was easy to replace a laptop battery. But as computer systems become thinner, thinner, and thinner, replacing the battery has become an even more complicated task.
Last year, Apple launched a feature in macOS called Battery Health Management, the idea being that by limiting the time a battery takes to 100% on its charge, it helps reduce wear and slow chemical aging.
The problem with macOS battery health management is that Apple has tried to strike a balance between giving users the best charging experience while trying to reduce battery wear.
But what if you decide to manage your battery charge level yourself?
There is an app for that.
The app is called Al Dente from AppHouseKitchenIt is available in the free version and the pro version.
The free version features a charge limiter that reduces battery wear and a discharge feature that allows your MacBook to run on battery even while charging, helping to discharge the battery to an optimal level.
For most people, the free version will suffice.
For those who want more, the pro version adds a number of additional features, including:
- Heat protection, which stops charging the battery when the battery temperature is too high.
- Navigation mode, which keeps the battery level at a certain level
- Real-time status icons, which let you see what the app is doing in a jiffy.
- “Charging” mode that allows you to charge the battery to 100%.
- Calibration mode, which subjects your battery to a regular charge/discharge cycle to avoid calibration issues.
I’ve used AlDente Pro on my MacBook, and it’s a powerful app that works well. The pro version does a really good job of controlling the charging capacity and not charging the battery when the temperature is too high.
A one-year AlDente Pro license costs €11.40, and a lifetime license is €24.
