A clear way forward to better battery life - MBP 2019

I have just purchased this for my recently replaced (under warranty) battery pack on my 15" MacBook Pro (Intel) 2019 after a lengthy demo offer (thanks for that, Andreas). I rarely give a five start review, this app deserves it!
Better Battery2:Stats and Info was checked againat several apps that were similar. It has better features and better graphical reporting of battery conditions. Both were very useful to improve my battery life AND explain the kinky features in my recently factory upgraded MBP.
Apple apparently added a new device controller to adjust my battery charge. It has a new feature ("Charging on hold") that no one at Apple can explain, but that this app tracks very nicely. I like it a lot.

Excellent app! Vital for users esp for M1 MacBooks Air and Pro

This app provides so much more vital and useful information about your battery and its performance. Highly recommend this app alongside (or even over) the macOS default battery infomation.

Thanks you very much! I really appreciate your feedback.

Incorrect Information

I like this app because of the detailed info and also because it can show both time and percentage in the menubar. HOWEVER, I swapped the battery in my MacBook Pro and the app continues to show the "manufactured date" of the OLD battery, indicating it is caching info somewhere. No other app had this problem. Also, as the new battery approached full charge, the percent displayed started to diverge from the Mac's built-in monitor and a compeeting app as well. So, unfortunately, I feel like I can't completely trust what this app is telling me.

Developer Response ,

Hi. Thanks for your feedback. Manufacture date is from the battery directly; the App isn't caching the date. If you compare the percentage of the charge level with other Apps or macOS, check if "Real charge level" is activated or not in the settings. If yes, the value is calculated by current, real capacity values. If no, the value will be the same as macOS is showing to you; but it's an optimized value.
