Why Calibrate Your Macbook Battery

Your battery is actually pretty smart. It has an internal microprocessor built in that  controls the time remaining box you see in your toolbar and also manages the battery’s energy efficiency.

  1. Charge Fully
  2. Run It Down All The Way (You can use it while you do this)
  3. Let is sit for 5 hours (while the battery is flat)
  4. Charge it Fully again – You’ll know it’s full when the charger light turns from amber to green

That’s it, you’re done.

Apple recommends that you do a calibration once per month to get the best possible battery life from your Macbook. I have an alarm set on mine that reminds me once a month.
