    Question 20.04 - Old Apple MacBook - New Battery Only Charges To 69% ?

    Hi,

    Running current Ubuntu 20.04 LTS 64Bit on an old Apple MacBook notebook.
    The notebook has a brand new battery installed.
    When the charger is plugged into MacBook, Ubuntu reports battery at 100%.
    When the charger is unplugged from MacBook, Ubuntu reports battery at 69%?

    Any ideas?, thanks!

    Jesse

    Is the battery genuine Apple? If so how do you know it's new?
