    My dear friend,


    • This is the normal issue which occurs in all the Macbook because the charging may stops between 93 percent and 99 percent.This is normal because the batteries used in these computers are designed to avoid short charge cycles in order to prolong the overall life of battery.





    • You can notice that the battery charges upto 93 percent or upto 99 percent .The adapter will not charge the battery upto 100 percent automatically if it will add additional wear to the battery.

    Thank u!!

    dear aspirant,
    the charging is a general issue in any os.the right solution to get 100% charging is re-calibration . Re-calibration here refers to the no interruption during charging period.

    The other option could be go to system preferences ---> energy saver -->set computer sleep to never.

    Try to keep monitor off when not working its saves battery power.

    Hope this answer is useful

    thank u

    Re: Macbook not charging to 100%

    Hi

    This is the normal problem which occurs in the Mac books.

    You should not worry about it because the battery of the mac is charged up to 99 % It will not charged up to full 100 % level because these are made for the purpose of long life.

    So if your battery is showing 93 % ,94%,95% charged then it means it is approximately fully charged.

    If it is not charging upto this level then there is surely a problem with your battery. for this you must have to change your Battery.

    Thank you....
