AlDente free download for Mac


15 December 2020

Keep your battery fresh and chewy.


Li-ion and polymer batteries (like the one in your MacBook) last the longest when operating between 30 and 80 percent. Keeping your battery at 100% at all times can shorten the lifespan of your notebook significantly. More information can be found here

AlDente writes the desired value to your MacBooks SMC (System Management Controller), which handles the rest. For everyone that is curious, the modified SMC key is called "BCLM" (Presumably "Battery Charge Level Max")

AlDente is tested and working on pretty much every Intel MacBook from 2011-2020, including:

  • 2020 MacBook Pro 13" with 4 TB3 ports
  • 2019 MacBook Pro 16"
  • 2017 Macbook Pro 13" without TouchBar
  • 2017 MacBook Air 13"
  • 2013 MacBook Pro 13"

Note: AlDente is currently NOT working on Apple Silicon (M1) MacBooks due to some SMC Key Changes!
