    Default Hard drive clone - battery status

    Hi all

    Does anyone know if I clone my macbook hdd and put the cloned drive into another unit does the battery health transfer? It looks like it does, copied from macbook with bad battery to a good machine, and good machine now shows bad battery.

    Can I refresh the battery status?

    Battery info should be battery talking to machine, not some software setting.

    My understanding was that the battery had its own chips that communicate the health and status of the battery. Not something that the OS does.
    Something about Jimby.

    Thanks for the reply. Perhaps my battery wasn't as good as I thought
