MacBook Pro :: Unable To Charge Battery / Charging Stucks At 99 Percent With Service Battery

Aug 20, 2010

I calibrated my battery for the first time since Dec. When I plugged it in this morning, it took 3 hours to charge all the way, and now it's stuck on 99% full, 0:00 till completely charged, and I'm getting an error when I click on the battery in the menu bar that says "Service Battery". When I click on the error, it tells me that it may not be functioning properly and to take it to an authorized apple service retailer. Before I waste 2 hours by going to the Apple store and back, has anyone else had this problem, and is there a way to fix it without having it looked at?

MacBook Air :: Apple's Battery Is Removable - Battery Hold No Sufficient Charge

Mar 14, 2009

If you look at apple's battery life page it states the MBA battery is removable, I thought it wasn't supposed to be?Battery Lifespan For Apple notebooks with removable batteries ? such as the MacBook, MacBook Air, and 15-inch MacBook Pro ? a properly maintained battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 300 full charge and discharge cycles. You may choose to replace your battery when it no longer holds sufficient charge to meet your needs.

MacBook :: Battery No Longer Holds Long Charge / Worth Pursuing A Replacement Battery?

Jun 2, 2009

purchased a macbook Unibody back in October 2008 when they were released and use it heavily. The battery no longer holds a nice long charge - I get about 2 to 2.5 hours out of a full charge.

The battery has 149 cycles on it, which is obviously high (and correct, I use the hell out of it). With it still being in warranty, is it worth pursuing a replacement battery? Will Apple tell me to go take a hike with the high cycle counts?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Charge Complete Battery / Service The Battery?

Nov 15, 2010

been using my older MBP with windows 7 for a while and have never notice oddies with the battery until now. Then recently after replacing the failed HD and re-installing Snow Leopard on my 2007 MBP, the battery panel is telling me "Service Battery"; it's battery health according to coconutBattery is fair for it's age (50%).

the unit (battery) has been replaced previously due to being considered 'under performing'. Is Snow Leopard trying to encurate it's users to replace the battery more frequently? If not, does anyone know why this appears? I'm at lost, since it appears to work fine, if not charging completely.

MacBook :: Unable To Charge Battery / Service Battery Message

Jul 20, 2010

So, I randomly clicked on my battery and noticed this "Service Battery" message. I had never seen it before. Obviously, this isn't a good thing. My Mac is 3 and a half years old so I'm not surprised this message poped up. So, I opened Coconut Battery and noticed my current battery capacity is at 65%. Even though charger says it's green, my battery isn't even charging. Should I make an appointment with Apple? My AppleCare expired so i'll have to buy a new battery when the time comes. I'm sure they're not cheap, either.

MacBook :: Battery Won't Charge - Getting "Not Charging" In The Menu Bar Battery Status?

Jul 1, 2012

I have a Mac 10.6.8 running Snow Leopard. My battery won't charge: all I get is "Not Charging" in the menu bar battery status; the power adapter doesn't light up either. It's not a problem with the battery—when I put my battery in my friend's MacBook, it worked just fine. His battery, however, wouldn't charge either when it was in my computer. I have tried resetting the SMC several times, following the instructions exactly. I've reset the PRAM, run disk repair, and fixed disk permissions. I don't have the money to take it to a repairman—even if I did, I need my computer every day for work.

MacBook Pro :: New Battery Not Getting Charge

Mar 1, 2010

Our old battery said it was needing to be replaced and my dad went out and bought a new battery for our 15" MBP from 2008 - running SL. I've put it in, it works, I've plugged the power cord into it, and the little light that indicates it's charging doesn't turn on. I checked in the menu and it said the battery isn't charging.

I've already pulled it out and then put it back in, shutting down of course. And I just tried resetting the SMC which has done nothing. It's not under warranty. I've just put the old battery back in and it doesn't seem to be charging it either. I'd be curious if the power cord was faulty, but it's powering the MBP at the moment.

MacBook Pro :: How To Charge Battery

Jun 1, 2010

1) When you first get your Macbook Pro, should you let the battery die out completely and then fully charge it? Or should I charge it fully first? Or what? I don't want to mess up the battery with the first charge.

2) Do you leave your Macbook plugged in while you sleep, are not using it, etc? Or is that bad for the battery?

3) I've heard somewhere that it's bad to shut your Macbook off when you go out/go to sleep. Would it be wiser to just set it to "sleep" and keep it plugged in or something?

MacBook Pro 13' Battery Won't Charge

May 23, 2012

I'm using a MacBook Pro 13' and it's one year old. I bought it last year March. But after I purchased it, few months later, my laptop started playing up. First, it's faulty hardware, and i sent my laptop in to get a new hardware. Not long later, the battery won't charge. Whenever I touch or drop the adapter or connecter when it's charging, my laptop will shut down itself, and resetting. (when i tried to switch on, the date has changed) And it won't charge anymore. I get frustrated when ever I ask for repair and it seems nothing happen in Apple Care, and they refuse to repair it.

MacBook :: My Battery Won't Charge

Jun 6, 2012

My cat knocked over a glass of vodka/sprite onto my 13" white MacBook (the older version, from 2007 I believe). I let it dry out and took the battery out and everything and let it sit for a few days. It turned on when plugged in but the battery was dead. I purchased a new battery to replace it thinking it was just that the battery got ruined. However, the new battery I purchased will also not charge. It came partially charged and it worked and my MacBook had power without the power cord... until the battery died, and now i cannot get it to charge back up at all. Is this something that can be fixed? If so can I do it on my own or would I need to bring it to a Mac store, and what would that cost me? My concern about taking it in to get fixed is what it would cost me and if it is worth it seeing as my MacBook is pretty old.

got my 13" MBA and am very happy about it. I plan to baby this thing, and I am always very conscious of battery life for all of my devices, so do any of you have any advice for how to best handle the first charge/discharge cycle?The machine almost fully charged out of the box. Should I run it down to zero and then fully charge it? Should I fully charge it first and then run it down?

MacBook Air :: Battery Won't Fully Charge?

Dec 29, 2010

I just got a new macbook air, it was working fine for a couple of days until yesterday.

The battery seems to be stuck at 98% - or was. I rebooted because I started to lag, and was updating, then I unplugged it and plugged it back in, then it went down to 97%. What confuses me is the fact it had been plugged in (while shut off), for about 8 hours and it should have been charged by the time I got around to using it. When I right click on the battery icon, it says the computer is fully charged.

MacBook Pro :: Battery Charge Does Not Last But Five Minutes

Aug 31, 2009

I have an old MBP (2.16 GHZ); 2 Gigs of Ram and 120 Gig hard-drive. I have used my battery a handful of times since I got it, and now when I try to run off of battery power, it says it is fully charged, but after unplugging it, it dies about 3-5 minutes later. I remove the battery after the shut down happens, press to button on the bottom and all five green lights are lit indicating it is full. I really can't afford a new battery... And it doesn't seem like it is the battery anyway.

MacBook Air :: Won't Hold Battery Charge

In the last two weeks, my Air will not hold after I Shut Down or Suspend, battery seems to work fine if I'm using it (drains normally). When I turn it on it's at 0%. Plugging it in will charge to 100% in ~30 minutes. Did SMC reset did not resolve problem. I don't believe there are any hardware issues.. Will a format fix this? All software is up-to-date.

MacBook Pro :: MBP Battery Loosing Charge When Turned Off?

Oct 28, 2010

I've been a member here for a few years but mainly kept in the background reading about news and other interesting things like mods and discussions.

A few months back I bought a 15 inch 2.4 MBP, the most recent model as far as I'm aware, from the refurb store in the UK and after a few troublesome experiences ( they delivered an iPad to me the first time) I finally got my computer. Ever since, there have been a few problems.

First my Logic board died, handed it in and got it fixed.
Second the Keyboard backlighting wouldn't work, same thing, handed it in and got it fixed.
Now it seems that my MBP can't hold the battery charge when the computer is turned off, which to me seems very strange as it holds the charge perfectly well, 5+ hours although I've never timed it, during normal use.

I recently installed and mce optibay for extra storage since I don't really need the superdrive and it works great. Could this by any chance have anything to do with the drain?

So to summarize my MBp can't hold the charge when computer is turned off but works fine when its on. I have an extra HDD installed where the superdrive used to be via mce optibay and everything else works fine.

How Can I Fix This Problem . What Could It Be. ? It Works Fine When It Is Booted Up And When The LED Is Orange. Its Ben Like This Ever Since About 1 Week And A Half Ago. When It First Started Happening I Could Just Blow Really Hard Inside The The End O The Charger And The Slot For The Charger On The Macbook An It Worked. But I Dont Know What To Do Now If It Does Go Bright Orange It Happens Maybe Once Or Twice A day For Maybe 1 Minuter After 30 mins of tampering with it.

MacBook :: Battery With 828 Charge Cycles - Unsafe?

Nov 30, 2010

I received a Black 2.4GHz MacBook that I bought on eBay a few days ago to add to my collection. The battery reports 828 charge cycles, and has about 82% of it's original charge capacity, and still lasts a good 2.5 hours. What I want to know is, is it unsafe to use it like this? Apple Battery FAQ doesn't not really say when to replace the battery, besides when it doesn't hold that good of a charge anymore.
Should I be worried?

OS X :: MacBook Pro Battery Charge Status At 97 Percent

Dec 22, 2010

So when I bought this the guy said that Apple installed a new battery on it recently. I believe him because when I downloaded the iStat Pro widget it said only 2 or 3 cycles which is because I calibrated the battery. But I just finished charging and the light is green. But it says the charge is only at 97%. I don't see why it should be like this. Also when it's not plugged in the battery only lasts maybe 3 and half hours from just surfing on the internet. But I thought it was supposed to last like 6?(I'm thinking that since mine is an older model, that could be it.
