MacBook Battery Repair & Replacement

Do you need to replace your MacBook battery? We can help.

Your MacBook is a sophisticated piece of equipment that is designed to deliver an experience that is simple and easy to use. The battery is one of the most critical parts of your MacBook. It is not only responsible for delivering the energy necessary to power the device but also for delivering optimum performance. The battery used in MacBook uses lithium-ion (Li-ion) technology. Compared with the older generation of battery technologies, Li-ion batteries last longer, charge faster, and have a greater power density for battery life in a smaller and lighter package.

Li-ion batteries are the best technology currently available for your MacBook compared to their predecessors. All rechargeable batteries are consumables and have a limited lifespan. As they age, they might contribute to your MacBook’s declining performance, requiring replacement.

Apple has integrated a feature to measure the battery health, performance, and cycle count into the macOS.

How to Address the "Service Recommended" Message on Your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro

If your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro displays a “Service Recommended” message, it indicates that the battery’s capacity has decreased or it’s not functioning properly. Here’s a detailed guide to check and address this issue:

Step-by-Step Guide to Check Battery Health

1: Open Battery Settings:

  • Click on the Apple menu  located at the top-left corner of your screen.
  • Select System Preferences (or System Settings on newer macOS versions).
  • Click on Battery.

2: Check Battery Health:

  • In the Battery settings, click Battery Health.

3: Understand the Battery Health Status:

  • Normal: Your battery is functioning properly.
  • Service Recommended: The battery’s capacity is significantly reduced or it’s not functioning correctly. Your MacBook is still operational, but you should consider servicing the battery.

Checking Battery Health in Earlier Versions of macOS

In some earlier macOS versions, battery health may be reported as Replace Soon, Replace Now, or Service Battery. These notifications might appear in the battery status menu rather than in Battery settings. To access this information:

Open the Battery Status Menu:

  • Press and hold the Option (or Alt) key while clicking the battery status icon in the menu bar.

This message does not indicate any safety issues, and you can still use your MacBook. However, you may be experiencing significant battery and performance issues. A new replacement battery will resolve the issue.

* There is a possibility that what seems to be a battery problem may be caused by a faulty component on the motherboard. Don’t worry; we can fix that too. We will perform a preliminary test on the motherboard before replacing the battery. If it is the motherboard, we will inform you about any additional costs and obtain your approval before proceeding with the repair.

FAQ's

Here are some of the customers' most common questions about MacBook Battery Replacement.

The short answer is Yes. Like most laptops, you can get your MacBook battery replaced if you feel the performance of your MacBook has degraded or your MacBook does not last a day.

Replacing the battery in your MacBook isn’t easy, but it’s doable. You don’t need an Apple Certified technician to do the job, but it will be in your best interest to get the battery replaced by a trained professional.

The best time to replace your MacBook battery is when you notice that your MacBook won’t hold a sufficient charge to power through the day. In other words, get a new battery if the charge in your MacBook fails to suit your needs or makes the device unusable.

While losing data during a battery replacement is uncommon, there is always a chance. The battery replacement itself will not cause any data loss, but if something were to go wrong, it could wipe the MacBook. Hence, it is always best to complete a backup before submitting your device for repair.
