Macbook Pro A1706 Battery Service Recommended Repair

Macbook Battery Replacement in Adelaide

Macbook Batteries usually have a life expectancy of 1000 cycles; unfortunately, this is spanned across 3-4 years, with typical usage patterns explained below. As a result, a Battery with depleted health might hold a short charge. 

Another symptom of a failing battery is that it may drain quickly past a certain charge. 

We would also notice that the Battery shows one of these signs:

  • Service Recommended
  • Replace Soon
  • Battery Not Charging

All this means that the Battery needs a replacement.

Why do Macbook Batteries fail so quickly?

Batteries used to last 5-7 years, however since 2019 we start seeing drastically shorter battery life of Macbook Batteries in our Macbook Repair Centre in Adelaide.

Nowadays we barely get 1-2 year lifespan out of batteries. There are a couple of reasons depleting their lifespan quickly, but the most prominent is the change in the Li-Ion technology. Rather than technology advancing, we believe recycled Lithium and increasing disposable design is causing these batteries to be treated as consumables. Similiar to printer cartridges, with a drastic difference that they are not user replaceable.

We start noticing 2-3 year old Macbooks coming for a battery replacement, compared to 6-8 year old ones we used to get before.

Prominent reason also is a lack of System Service. The heat directly impacts the chemistry of the Li-Ion battery and depletes their life.

Also, heavier operating system and applications drains more current from the battery in a short time, hence the batteries overheat and reduce lifespan.
