Running out of power? Let's talk battery replacement
You charge your laptop or phone – but as soon as you unhook it from the charging cable, you can watch the battery icon drain. What is going on? It may be time for a battery replacement.
Batteries for laptops or phones will start to deteriorate over a period of 2 to 3 years, which also means they will stop holding a charge. There are several contributing factors that can shorten your battery life, such as keeping your phone or laptop on charge all the time or using unofficial chargers.
Here is the good news, though. Batteries for both laptops and phones can be replaced. But this is not a DIY job, this must be done by an expert. If done incorrectly, it can damage your system and hardware, and wrong parts can void the warranties. Just try to put an incorrect Apple battery replacement in your MacBook and see what AppleCare says.
How do I know when I need to replace my battery?
- Computer is getting hot
- Trackpad is no longer responding
- Charger is getting hot
- Laptop is getting deformed, case splits open
- Battery icon goes to 0% when unplugged
- Laptop turns off when unplugged
- Phone is getting hot to the touch
