Good afternoon, members. I am new to this website, so I will start with the issue. I saw a lot of people on the internet (hackintosh forums) with this battery issue and haven't seen a fix for it. I would highly appreciate your patience to help me. So, yesterday I updated from Big Sur to Monterey (for the new features, but only for the low power mode thing). I want to mention that the issue was before I upgraded the system, even on Big Sur. First, cycle count in the System Report on 'About This Mac', it's with the value of 0. Which is pretty strange.. Also, I got the 'Service Recommended' notification in Settings -> Battery. Even in System Report. The only thing I want to do about this situation is to have the Low Power Mode feature on this hackintosh, which I think it has to do with the notification pop up. What can I do? Full DSDT Patch? How? I am kinda a newbie in the process of making a DSDT Patch and I would like some help (I don't understand some details on old forums, the forum with RehabMan). If someone wanna help a newbie, I would appreciate a lot. I want to mention too that I used the ECEnabler fix, didn't work. What can I do more? Please let me know down in the comments. Also, the EFI is fully configured and almost everything is working on the laptop. 

 

Specifications:

Proccessor -> Intel i5 5200U

Memory -> 8GB RAM DDR3

iGPU -> Intel HD 5500

eGPU -> nVIDIA 920m (disabled in the SSDT)

Storage -> Some kind of Kingston SSD Drive. Working properly.

Battery -> Some kind of Sanyo Battery. Battery status working. Notification issue.

 

                                              **LAPTOP: Acer Aspire E5-573G**

*If you want any other information about this laptop, let me know down below in the comments.*

Afaik, many Hackintosh laptops have that under Big Sur. All mines certainly do. Could be the result of using ACPIBatteryManager/FakeSMC rather than VirtualSMC & PlugIns.

hello chris! i am a big fan of you. okie thankies for the suggestions. sorry for bothering you with my stupid questions but i am needed to. what patches should I use on my DSDT? i need to add the DSDT only in the ACPI section, or do I need to do something extra? yeah, i know that you'll say i need to watch tutorials on youtube, but i don't know how to fix some errors. i can't find them on internet tho. i just want to remove the service recommended thing. uhm, should I use the Acer Aspire E1-571 battery dsdt patch? I mean, i think i need to try one by one. anyways, thanks for your fast reply. again, sorry for annoying you with my stupid questions. regards, dave.

hello herve! even on big sur i have this issue. haven't tried on catalina. i am not using acpi thing or fakesmc. i am using the virtualsmc kext and the smcbatterymanager one. what could be the issue? i just wanna have the low power mode thing and the optimized battery charging thing. i heard you can get them once you have your battery fully configured or fully working. thanks anyways for your reply. i hope there's someone who could help me fix this. would appreciate everyone's patience. have a great day<3

There are two way to fix the issue: acpi patching or choose other set of kexts. How else you propose to get a help?

My Dell M4700 has that message, but it's battery is atrocious (60% of original life I think?) so the messaging isn't too far off there :lol:
My X1 Extreme doesn't though, and I'm using VirtualSMC + SMCBatteryManager + ECEnabler (no ACPI patches at all needed)

I'm not quite how it determines if a battery needs servicing, but depending on how old it is, it might be accurate?

hi slice! i don't mind. one which I can understand, i guess? i can do patching too. but i just need some tips, i am not an expert. kinda a newbie. i mean, i am watching tutorials on youtube, but it seems kinda hard. maybe some help, i would appreciate a lot. i tried one time to patch the dsdt but no luck. eh.. kexts? sure, but i dunno which ones. thanks for the reply. waitin' for your response. i mean, anything. i just want the optimized battery charging thing, or maybe if it's possible, the low power mode. thanks again. regards, dave.

it is kinda new. this laptop is almost new. just changed the hard drive to a faster ssd. the battery is fully working on windows though. never had an issue with the battery on my other hackintoshes, but as i said, this thing is new to me. would appreciate someone's help. have a great day! thanks for your reply. regards, dave.

Hi,

I just want to propose very other solution. To use it you have to exclude all kexts from previous solutions.

Not use VirtualSMC, SMCBattery

Not use FakeSMC with plugins from Rehabman.

Not use ACPIBatteryManager, not edit DSDT.

I want to propose you to use FakeSMC3+VoodooBattery. The link is in my signature. You also must install HWMonitor.app because it produces polling to change battery status.

hi slice. yeah, i tried. samething but i also have a new option under settings -> battery -> power adapter: (you can see it in the image below)

i remvoed virtualsmc, and the battery thing. haven't used fakesmc with plugins from rehabman. i used the fakesmc3 with the battery one. i installed the app, and nothing changed. what can i do more? also, new information in system report -> power (it has been changed due to the kexts i think, see the image below). should i do a dsdt patch? what patches to apply? i am a newbie as i said and would appreciate some help. thankies! regards, dave.

Yes, it looks like the battery is near to end of life. Consider to replace it.

oh okie. thanks anyways for your patience to figure it out. i'll try to replace it with a new battery, maybe over 2000 mAh. thanks! wish you a wonderful day!

you can consider this case as resolved. regards, dave.
