great. after one year without a working battery in my macbook (it is detected, but no power is drawn from it) the charge it currently holds is low enough for something to somehow magically decide to throttle the CPU to 500MHz whenever I do something CPU-intense (such as browsing the modern web).
time for replacing the whole battery unit I guess?
the battery itself would be fine -- its capacity is well over 50%. however I seem to have damaged the battery controller (which is part of the battery unit itself) while re-inserting the internal SSD (had a completely different issue there which surfaced around Revision 2018).
@pixel I don't want to support anything that's branded as "for gamers", as I am certainly not one of those.
