Over time and charging cycles your battery lifespan decreases eventually,
reaching a point where it doesn’t last long enough for it to be useful,
and you mainly depend on always being connected to power source.
You can extend that life through careful use.
Don’t run your laptop from the mains all the time,
fully discharge the battery before recharging and take the battery out if you’re not using it for extended periods.
And, use coconutBattery. It’s a free tool that enables you to monitor the health of your MacBook battery with neurotic precision.
Well coconut Battery might make your life a little easier helping you discover the main sources that eat out your battery, A lots of this information you can get from OS X already, but coconutBattery puts it into a really simple, readable window: you can see your current charge, the current maximum capacity of your battery, the original capacity of your battery when you bought it, and more. You can even pull out a panel and save your data at any given point, so that over time you can see how much your battery’s health degenerates.
The most useful data compares your battery’s current maximum charge with the capacity it had when it left the factory, giving you an accurate and very useful indication of how much life your battery has left.
