I bought a new battery for my Mid-2010 Macbook Pro running El Capitan.
The online video states I should:
1. Replace the battery
2. Charge the battery overnight
3. Turn the energy saver sliders all the way to the right/Never and disable/un-click the energy saving features.
4. Run the battery all the way down until it shuts off
5. Charge the battery at least 4 hours
After this process is complete the battery is calibrated/conditioned.
The battery that I purchased warns against running it all the down in the beginning to prevent damage. They recommend running the battery down no lower than 3%. So I have two conflicting instructions.
The online video is from a reputable source, or so it seems. But as we know with our hobby batteries we don't run them all the down to prevent damage. I'm more inclined to follow the battery manufacturers recommendations.
So what should I follow and will the energy saving features be calibrated correctly afterwards? Also will I get max performance out of my battery if I only run it down to 3%?
To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.
