Clean Up Better Battery 2 & restore database

Sometimes a simple Restart helps to solve problems. Try it. If not, let’s do a clean-up. But before, we have to save the Better Battery 2 history database.
If you don't want/need to save and restore the battery history database file, then simply skip step 1 and 3.


1. Copy the history database file:
  • Quit Better Battery 2
  • Open Finder
  • Press and hold "Alt/Option" and choose "Go" and „Library“ from the menubar
  • Open the folder "Containers"
  • Open the folder „at.agross.battery2“ OR the folder "Better Battery 2" (on macOS Big Sur and higher)
  • Navigate to Data -> Library -> Application Support
  • Copy the folder "at.agross.battery2" and paste it anywhere you like on your Mac (e.g. Documents or Desktop)
  • Now you can delete the whole preferences folder (step 2)


2. Delete preferences folder:
  • Open Finder
  • Press and hold "Alt/Option" and choose "Go" and „Library“ from the menubar
  • Open the folder "Containers"
  • Delete the folder „at.agross.battery2“ OR the folder "Better Battery 2" (on macOS Big Sur and higher)
  • Start Better Battery 2 again (the app creates now new preferences files)
  • If you followed step 1, you can restore the database now (step 3)


3. Restore the history database:
  • Quit Better Battery 2
  • Press and hold "Alt/Option" and choose "Go" and „Library“ from the menubar
  • Open the folder "Containers"
  • Open the folder „at.agross.battery2“ OR the folder "Better Battery 2" (on macOS Big Sur and higher)
  • Navigate to Data -> Library -> Application Support
  • Replace the folder "at.agross.battery" with the folder you've saved in step 1
