AlDente overview

AlDente allows you to limit your MacBook from charging above a certain percentage. This will not only decrease Battery wear but also increase longevity of your Battery.

Features:
  • Charge Limiter allows you to set your maximum charging percentage between 20 and 100 percent. You can either set it by using the slide bar or by typing in the desired percentage in the field above and pressing enter afterwards.
  • Discharge - This feature allows your MacBook to run completely on Battery even if it is plugged in. Therefore, you can actively discharge your MacBook to a more healthy percentage. Unfortunately, while Discharge is activated, clamshell mode is not supported due to technical limitations.

AlDente comes in two service levels: Free and Pro. Compare the plans.

"AlDente now locks the screen automatically if you close your MacBook while sleeping is disabled" Now, what the heck is that all about? I'm in this situation, and I do NOT want my screen to lock at AlDente's whim. AlDente is NOT a security app!!!

Simply the easiest and best way to preserve the battery. I love the app and the Pro version is well worth the small price.

I can't find a contact link to submit a feature request, so I'll post here. PLEASE reduce the padding around AlDente's menu bar icon! It is disturbingly hugely disproportionate to that of the icons of all my other apps...Apple and 3rd party.

Al Dente is great but I'm struggling to find links to old versions that still worked with Mojave. I'm running a machine that can't update past Mojave

Running the v 2.1 alpha with no significant problems, but when I tested "Allow discharge (Beta)," my battery stopped discharging at 97%...long before the 80% target. (Couldn't figure out how to post at GitHub.) Useful app for someone like me who virtually never runs on battery power.

v2.1 is the actual version just released. And note that it is an Alpha build, i.e. not for the faint of heart, not even a beta yet.
