Intermittent 'Battery not charging'
This battery is 968 cycles. Good. 92% of design full charge capacity.
All in all, many cycles, must have been discharged to 10% then charged completely to keep so much capacity, without heavy app usage.
What I've had was battery not charging at about 11% while running youtube 4K video (in 4K quality) and some other apps... like HW Monitor, coconut battery etc...
Basically my question is: under any circumstances of high energy demand/load, with wifi youtube 4K playback, keyboard backlight maxed and screen brightness maxed, also volume maxed, is it allowed for the battery to show 'not charging'?! As in... battery wants a certain amount of watts which cannot be provided?
Reset SMC and PRAM etc.
Battery was flat out the other day, just charged it after 1 month or so.
Is there a failsafe against poor input - say magsafe board faulty- which magsafe board can create various issues. Simply put... it is probably battery or board issue...
With 3rd party cheap batteries, I've seen macbook go funny on performance with above 4K youtube playback via wifi because of poor battery power, though charged fully let's say...
When cpu and gpu are throttling, does it lower the wattage to charge battery?
Note: PSU is 85W magsafe 1 genuine Apple ( and I mean genuine.. not some copyright infringement look-alike copy).
Is this a good question?
