Dear Experts

 

How do I find the time since last full charge for my MBPR (Mid 2012)?

 

For example: Time since last restart is found using the command UPTIME in terminal.

 

Thanks


MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 15" & 16GB RAM

    Click the Apple top left corner>About this Mac>More Info>System Report>highlight Power and all the info will be on the right.

    I do not believe that such a record is even kept.  Just out of curiosity, what value or benefit do you feel that information has?

     

    Ciao.

    Dear Ciao,

     

    I would like to check - how much does time my new macbook last for my usage.

     

    Dear dk0654

     

    That does not show the information.

     

    If you have any other way of checking this - please recommend.

     

    Thanks

    The only time parameter that the system shows for the battery is the theoretical charge time left based on the activities being performed AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT.   This will radically change if you open or close  applications thus is not to be relied on for any degree of accuracy unless to do not change anything that you are doing.

     

    Ciao.

    Do you have the pecentage readable up by the battery? That may help but if your looking for someway for it to tell you how many charge cycles your battery will go Apple gives 1000 for the newer mid 2009 macbook pro and UP
