How did this happen?!?!
how old is said battery?
you got owned by mbp battery reliability. call apple or hit the local apple store and get a new battery.
will they replace it for free because it sucks so hard?
Just go into the closest apple store and make an appointment with the genius bar. I had the same problem, and when I took my mbp in they just replaced my battery for free and sent me on my way. The guy said that there have been more than a few mbps with this same problem, so they just ship people out with new batteries.
thanx mac shack, you never disappoint.
Yeah, if the battery tanks during warranty period or if it's extended under applecare, they will cover it. Mine was actually a few days after the 1-year mark and they still took care of me.
How about this though?
Same for me; I didn't buy extended care, and I my computer was about 6 months past the 1 year mark, but they were really nice about it and just replaced it.
Do you actually get good battery life? This looks like it's lying or your photochopped it.
The battery on my PowerBook G4 lasts about 5 minutes on a full charge. I need a new one badly.
$120 for a new battery? WTF Apple?
ugh, why did my charge count reset in coconut battery?
Grab one of the NewerTech batteries from OWC. Awesome batteries with longer life then the standard Apple batteries and a good warranty. We use them in all of our machines at work (other then MacBook Pros which haven't gotten NewerTech batteries yet).
i wonder how those batteries react if/when you update your firmware. i remember some type of battery firmware update a couple of months back
perhaps with that brand of batteries, it would just never get downloaded to begin with
It will go like an hour maybe. That is also on the lowest brightness with wi-fi off. Also, it does not warn me when it dies. The screen just goes blank and the computer goes to sleep or whatever it does. Even though it says I had 45 minutes left.
But that is not edited at all.
At the mac store now..its such a fucking zoo. One of the dudes hooked me up and just brought it in the back and they are giving me a new battery. fuck yeah.
I've been pretty lucky when it comes to my MBP battery being replaced. First time was that recall, the battery I got from the recall would shut off at about 30 minutes left and they sent me out another for free
wtf noodle??? not plugged in, but is charging?
What is OWC?
how does 1 print screen on mac? my battery started at 5500mha but is now at 6000+ lol
