How to disable the new feature of the management of the state of the battery in macOS Catalina

Apple in the second macOS Catalina 10.15.5 beta has added a new management feature, the battery health for Mac, designed to prolong the life and health of the battery of the modern macBook (or those with Thunderbolt ports, 3) reducing the rate of chemical ageing.

Just like the iPhone and the iPad, each model of MacBook is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. When batteries age, they become less effective and their duration is reduced – and this can be exacerbated by conditions such as temperature and charge cycle.

With iOS 13, Apple has added a new option of charging optimized the battery to extend its life and now a similar feature arrives on the Mac with macOS Catalina 10.15.5. According to Apple, the new feature reduces the speed with which the battery is ageing chemically by monitoring the history of temperature of the battery and its schemes of charging.

According to the measurements that it collects, the function can reduce the maximum charging of the battery in this mode. This happens when you need to ensure that the battery is charged to a level optimized for the use, reducing wear and slowing its aging chemical.

In a few words, if we're constantly using our MacBook is connected, the macOS will learn our usage habits to prevent the battery to be recharged up to 100% every time. Consequently, the health of the battery will be preserved for a longer time.

Because this option prevents the full charging of the battery to avoid overloading, it is possible that the battery drains more quickly when using the Mac disconnected.

All the controls on the management of the state of the battery are available in the section energy Savings in the System Preferences, as shown below.

Battery Health Management is enabled by default with macOS Catalina 10.15.5, on a new MacBook or for those users who have updated to the latest version of macOS. Users can disable and enable this feature at any time, just like on iOS.

It is worth noting that macOS Catalina 10.15.5 is currently only available as a beta version for developers. However, the function is only available for the MacBook with a Thunderbolt 3, which means that only the MacBook Pro 2016, and MacBook Air 2018 and later will have this option.
