How to keep your MacBook Pro battery healthy?
In today's fast-paced life, laptops have become an important part of our daily work. If you're a MacBook Pro user, you probably know how important it is to keep your device's battery in good health. Since the battery is the lifeblood of a laptop, we probably wouldn't be able to use the device without it.
So, there are a few things we can do to maximize the life of your MacBook Pro battery.
1.Understanding battery cycling
Every battery has a limited number of cycles, after which the battery will no longer work. For example, Apple says about MacBook batteries: Batteries are designed to retain up to 80% of their original capacity after 1000 full charge cycles. That is to say, as the battery is charged and the number of cycles is consumed, its health status will decline until the battery is scrapped.
Generally speaking, if we drain the battery once a day and recharge it, then we can judge the total number of cycles of the battery by the date of use. For example, the 13-inch MacBook Pro model is rated at 1,000 cycles , giving it roughly three years of use if we drained the battery and recharged it every day.
And if we halved the amount of time we used our laptops, we might imagine that the battery would last six years. But in fact it is not, because in addition to the number of charging cycles that will affect battery life, there are other factors that affect it. But it is undeniable that knowing the number of uses or cycles of the battery will help us maintain the health of the battery.

In addition, if it is really impossible to determine the number of times the battery is used, we can directly call up the system information through the menu bar on the MacBook Pro to check the health status of the battery. It gives us an overview of things like the battery's maximum capacity, current capacity, and cycle count.
2.Update related software of MacBook Pro in time:
Updating your MacBook Pro to the latest software can help us improve battery life and performance. In addition, the system may be optimized every once in a while, and we need to regularly check for updates and install them as soon as possible to ensure that the MacBook Pro's battery is also optimized.
3.Save battery life
In a person's cognition, the screen is one of the biggest energy-consuming factors of a laptop. Depending on the model, 400, 450, or 500 nits of brightness will drain battery faster, so dimming the screen can reduce battery drain.
At the same time, we can also set the MacBook Pro to sleep after a certain period of inactivity or adjust the brightness of the display to save energy. This will help us conserve battery life, allowing the MacBook Pro to run longer without charging.
Also, some applications, such as video editing software or games, can be very power hungry. In order to protect the MacBook Pro battery, we can appropriately reduce the usage time of these fast-consuming applications, or close them in time after use. Of course, using the MacBook Pro's low power mode directly can also save battery life.
Also, if you want your MacBook Pro to last longer on a single charge, avoid Chrome.
We can replace it with Safari: because Safari is the default web browser on MacBook Pro, it is already optimized for battery consumption. Meanwhile, using an ad blocker on Safari and disabling autoplaying videos and animations on web pages can also help save battery life.
4.Store your MacBook Pro properly
Remember to turn off the MacBook Pro if we are not going to use it continuously for a long time. And it's worth noting that it can't be stored with the battery at 0% all the time. Because an idle battery loses power due to the system clock or time, when we store the device it is best to keep it with the battery still charged.
Also, when we're not using our MacBook Pro, make sure it's stored in a dry, cool place. Try to avoid storing it in environments with high humidity or temperature extremes, which can damage the battery and other components.
5.Consider replacing the battery
If all methods fail to keep the MacBook Pro battery in a healthy state , we can choose to replace the battery. Through the relevant channels provided by Apple, replace the battery for the MacBook Pro according to the procedure to reduce the number of repairs. If we follow the previous methods and still encounter poor battery life, this may be a good choice.
A healthy battery means a better MacBook Pro experience. By following these simple steps, we can keep our batteries in good health for a longer period of time and help us get the most out of our devices every day.
