MacBook batteries Created so that to work normally for a thousand recharge cycles. But sometimes they fail earlier, lose their charge or simply inflate. Today we tell you how to check the battery status on the MacBook and what to do if something is wrong with the component.
The first and main battery monitoring tool is the indicator in the menu line. If you click on the option (Alt) icon, you can see if the component is healthy or not. There are four status indicators in total: “Normal,” “Soon Need replacement,” “Need replacement” and “Required maintenance.
When the recharge cycle counter gets closer to a thousand, you’ll probably see one of the last three labels. In this case, the laptop should be taken to the service for diagnostics or replace the battery. The same should be done in the case of physical battery damage or deformation of the laptop case.
Important! Although my old MacBook Air ran a $20 battery with Aliexpress without complaint, it’s better not to change it yourself. First, there is no guarantee that there will be a healthy component, and secondly, crooked hands can damage the insides of an expensive laptop.
If you don’t have enough battery data from the menu line, open the Apple menu in the top left corner with the Option key clamped and select “The item Information about the system » → « Power supply ». This section shows the full and remaining battery capacity, the number of recharge cycles, and additional information about the component. In addition, data about the battery manufacturer is available – they will help those who do decide to change the faulty MacBook battery.
Make diagnostics and repair the laptop better in proven service centers. Sometimes it is more expensive than that of a familiar “computer” but you get a warranty for the work done and can be sure of the quality of the new battery.
Follow the rules of macBook: install software updates, don’t use the device in the cold and don’t leave in the open sun in the summer. Then the battery will last a long time and will not irritate you.
