Battery Status Differences


Anyone know why the macOS and coconutBattery stats might be different?

macOS Mojave Public Beta if that matters…


Battery health is probably not Mojave compatible yet - Apple may have changed its battery reporting technique causing battery health to misread.


I have had this “issue” on my 2016 Macbok Pro since 10.12 which it shipped with.

From all the research I did on the problem the consensus is that Apple overestimates with their reading.


Based on the difference it looks like perhaps Apple is calculating remaining capacity against the original capacity rating whereas coconut is calculating against the adjusted capacity rating taking into consideration reduced health?
