Quickly Mac? There is a solution
I think the problem of rapid battery discharge only familiar to owners of smartphones and tablets? And here and there. Some Mac users noticed that after installing macOS Sierra computers have less “hold” charge, and like the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. How to extend the battery life of the laptop?
Ways actually. The simplest is to open the “Monitoring system”, section “CPU” and see which application consumes from 90 to 100% CPU usage. If it still does it in the background, you’ll want to immediately close it.
The second method also applies to the “Monitoring system”. In this utility there is a section “Energy”, where you can see how much battery consumes the one or the other. Of course, if you do not have a power supply, a “greedy” program should be closed. Do not forget that high energy consumption is also available by clicking on the battery icon in the top bar.
The next trick familiar to owners of iOS devices — reduce motion. Yes, it is on a Mac, included in the section “the Display”, paragraph “Universal access” system settings. For peace of mind, and enable reduce transparency.
Oh and don’t forget about the other ways to extend the battery life of the Mac:
- Reduce the brightness of the screen
- To reduce the number of simultaneously open apps
- To turn off location services in the “safety and security” — “Privacy”.
This will give you about an hour of extra time battery life.
