AlDente for Mac2.1.2

25 March 2021

Keep your battery fresh and chewy.

What is AlDente for Mac

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"

What's new in AlDente

Version 2.1.2:
  • Fixed a bug that caused increased CPU consumption over time on some systems.
  • Added automatic updates
  • Slight UI changes

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.
