How to drain a battery which I can't use so I can try reset SMC
Background: MAC AIR 13" 2010
My laptop battery stopped working. Basically, when the power cable is pulled out the Mac shuts down abruptly. No previous water / spillage damage.
I tried all the suggestions then replaced the battery. It has merrily charged up to 100% ....and I still have the same problem. I suspect the logic board but I would like to try to RESET the SMC. However, now I have a fully charged battery and I think resetting SMC doesn't work with full battery, right?
Question: How can I discharge some of the battery so I can try resetting the SMC - when I can't actually use the battery power (currrently 100%)! Advice please. Thankyou.
Is this a good question?
