Inaccurate Battery Warning "Condition: Replace Soon"

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am running the latest Clover_v2.5k_r5070 with latest VirtualSMC 1.07 and SMCBatteryManager.kext 1.0 and seeing the Battery Warning "Condition: Replace Soon"


Under SystemInformation I can see the cycle count as:


Health Information:

  Cycle Count: 256

  Condition: Replace Soon


I am not sure whether passing 250 cycles started the warning message however the BIOS shows the Battery as Healthy.


Do I just have to live with this warning or is there a misconfiguration or tweak I can implement to get this to align to the BIOS status ?

Some infos about battery you sholdn't take it so serious, as the macOS it's not designed to a PC/Notebook...


But for me I've solved that by doing calibrating my battery, that's because even on Windows showed me some warning messages about it.

@Allan Cheers for the response!


How do you recalibrate? 

Completely drain your battery, then charge it back up to 100%

How does battery management work if you run with FakeSMC (& PlugIns) + Rehabman's ACPIBatteryManager kext?

Or FakeSMC v3 + VoodooBatterySMC.kext from my signature. I am using it on my Dell laptop.

@Slice - This also solves the problem I was having - Thanks! Less details are shown however I would like to investigate the wider set of HWMonitor tools which might be helpful.

You should completely discharge the battery then ms fully charge the battery again (do not turn on the computer) is an error that will be fixed. However, you should also check your computer battery sooner because this is just a temporary fix
