In order to extend a MacBook battery life, how can we programmatically write a script to do the following?
- Prevent the computer from charging after it reaches 100%
- After that, the computer should not charge again until it reaches 5% (even though it is connected to a power source)
- A disable functionality if we would like to let the computer charge as normal
- Disable popup message that appears when we reach 10% of battery
I know that somehow this should be possible because if I enable battery protection on my phone it only charges until 85%, so, somehow, the battery charging is disabled by software.
