Apple :: Battery Health Went Down

Jun 12, 2009

so with only 86 cycles my battery's at 80% health according to iStat Pro and at about 4450 mAh according to System Profiler. What's going on? I don't put any undue stress on it and just until 20 minutes ago battery health was at 86% (although that seems low too, isn't it supposed to go 300 cycles before it goes anywhere near 80%)?

And the last time I calibrated it battery health went down.

Apple :: Macbook Battery 35% Health

Jul 12, 2009

a few days ago I turned on the dashboard to monitor temp and such.

I found that my battery health is unstable, sometime it said 97%, 98%, 99% and 100%. I thought this was normal.

But today, I turn the dashboard on and istat pro said 35% battery health.

Should I go to a apple store and ask them for a battery replacement?

Dell :: Hard Drive Health

Feb 9, 2008

I've had this hard drive for quite a while now. I leave my laptop on pretty much 24/7 and was just wondering how the health of my HD is. I have a lot of important stuff on this and I was thinking of just buying a new HD and putting this into storage for safekeeping.

Here are some stats from Everest:


Can you tell anything from this? Is there a chance it could die soon?

I was thinking of getting the Hitatchi 200GB 7.2k RPM 16MB buffer HD but it's quite expensive. Has anyone any experience with this drive?

Apple :: Put My MBP To Sleep It Had About 30% Battery Left - When Open In Morning Battery Went Down To 13%

May 9, 2010

I just received my MBP 13" yesterday. So far I love it. However, I noticed an issue. Last when I put my MBP to sleep, it had about 30% battery left. However, when I woke up this morning and opened my MBP, the battery went down to 13%.

When I put the laptop to sleep, I had a pdf file open along with itunes (paused). I have never used Mac OS, so maybe I not doing something correct. Also, I noticed when I open the lid (after I put the notebook to sleep) it just goes directly back to the desktop as opposed to on windows it prompts to the login screen when waking it up from sleep mode.

Apple :: Macbook Nonremovable Battery And Battery Wear

Jun 12, 2009

I am looking into getting one of the new macbook pro's. Though I must say the non removable battery does concern me a bit. In past laptops I have had, I without a doubt saw increased battery wear and tear when I left the batter in the laptop while the laptop itself was plugged in. I completly destroyed a battery on my Dell laptop by doing this for about a month when it was asking as a desktop. I took the laptop which used to get around 4 hrs of battery life and then after a month it got no more than 15 minutes.

So after that I always took the battery out, so now with the new macbook pro's you cannot take the batteries out, so wont the batteries wear down to nothing faster than if you took them out when not using them?

Apple :: Battery Battery Is Not Recognized - An "X" Where The Battery Icon Is

Jul 2, 2009

I've run into this issue twice already... once on 1 computer and another on this same one. It's the one where the battery is not recognized and there is an "X" where the battery icon is.

I've done all the Software Updates, Batter Update 1.3, and tried resetting the PRAM. So far none of these have worked. Now I'm out of ideas. Before after going thru those steps, the problem would be fixed... not so this time.

I know they extended the warranty and were replacing the batteries for free, but not sure this one would be covered under that.

Apple :: New To OS X - Battery Life

Jun 6, 2009

I'm new to OS X, got my MacBook the other day, and I can hands down say it's my favorite OS I've dealt with. It's so much simpler and just plain awesome. Okay, I'll ask my question before I get carried away...

So, I did some searching on Google after I noticed that my battery likes to hang around 99%. Apparently this is common. My question is, is this a BAD thing? When I see 99% I'm picturing that the computer is constantly pushing power into the battery so it can reach 100%. I mean, isn't that how fires start?

Simply put, is my MacBook trying to charge the battery consistently when it is not at 100%?

Apple :: Anybody Else Being OCD About Their Battery Life

Sep 24, 2009

every time I'm running my uMBP from battery, I'm constantly checking the amount of time I have left and trying to figure ways to increase that time. Yes, CONSTANTLY. Whenever I can, I'm using the a/c adapter.

Even though I may see 6-7 hours left, I'm still not satisfied.

And just about every time I am running the battery, I'll open up Coconut Battery to make sure I still have a 100% charge hold left....even though my umbp is 7 weeks old with only 4 cycles...

Apple :: Battery On New Macbooks

Apr 27, 2009

Have Apple even thought about people maybe changing the battery on the new Apple Macbooks at all when it's worn out?

It must have been their dumbest move ever that you can't replace the battery and made it integrated

How much does Apple charge you when it's time to change the battery when it's old and not working anymore?

Apple :: Battery Leaks On Macbook

Oct 21, 2009

I use my macbook a lot lately without connecting it to a power outlet. I disconnect it from power supple in the morning and put it in my backpack, and after 3 hours I waked it up by opening the lid and I notice the battery is at 95%. The battery is pretty much out of power after about 4 hours of use with airport on for wireless connection, and at the lowest brightness. Is it possible there is a battery leak, or is this normal? The battery is at 99% health and 40 cycles. It was went down to 96% health before, and it came back to 99% after I calibrated the battery.

Apple :: Mac - Service Battery Message

Oct 13, 2009

I thought this was only happening to me, but after reports of many other users online, it seems that after the SL upgrade, many Mac users have been witnessing this "service battery" message that displays when you hover over the battery icon.

My mac was bought in Jan 2008, but i do not think it's in bad shape.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is Apple planning to address this?

Just want more information, that I'm sure you guys are aware of..
