    Important about the MacBook battery

    The battery of Apple MacBooks has a certain working life. In most cases, this parameter is measured by the number of recharge cycles. You can get this information in the system data section on the device power supply tab. The question arises when and why do you need to replace the MacBook battery? To determine such a need, we will understand the important nuances of this component.

    • The accumulator of MacBooks of different models since 2010 is designed for recharging in the amount of about 1,000 cycles.
    • Battery in earlier versions implies a recharge from 300 to 500 cycles.
    • Devices that have exhausted this resource begin to experience certain problems with the battery, which means that they may need to be replaced.
    • The correct charging process affects the battery life. If your MacBook is used with a permanently connected power adapter, then most likely its battery will “die” prematurely. According to experts, the component forgets its intended purpose and gradually its capacity decreases. Therefore, it is advisable to operate the device both with and without plugging into an outlet.

    Reasons for battery breakdown

    Replacing a MacBook battery is a process that must have a reason to be carried out. There are several main reasons for the need to replace a component:

    This does not mean that the bloating itself can be seen personally, but there are characteristic signs of a problem:

    • trackpad does not respond to touch;
    • there is an arrow running across the screen;
    • spontaneous discharge or long-term charging;
    • in rare cases, swelling leads to external deformation of the case.

    Most often, these symptoms appear due to illiterate and careless exploitation or factory marriage. In such situations, the repair is extremely necessary and the sooner the device falls into the hands of specialists, the more chances it will have to be reanimated. The cost of the service is determined by the master individually based on numerous factors.

    Are you fond of using a non-original charger (charger)? This means you are purposefully shortening the battery life. This is not a myth, but a harsh reality, confirmed by specialists.

    • Consequences of voltage drops.

    No one is immune from such situations, but nevertheless, this factor negatively affects the performance of the battery.

    MacBook Batteries and Moisture

    Most often, you need to change the battery after moisture gets into the laptop. Although, it would seem, what does the battery have to do with the keyboard and trackpad? Indeed, if water only got on the keyboard, the battery does not need to be changed, why change what works? But more often than not, water penetrates lower, onto the motherboard and battery, and in 90% of cases, the battery dies a death of the brave. The reason is the fuses inside the battery, which prevent short circuits on the board. Therefore, a battery broken after moisture is actually a good sign: most likely, the motherboard remained intact. What to do if moisture gets in your MacBook.

    Everything you need to know about replacing the MacBook battery

    The battery is one of the most vulnerable parts of a modern computer and the most popular replacement part. Damaging the battery is very simple: just leave your laptop in the car overnight in winter, or, conversely, leave it in the sun on a hot day. You can also spill liquid on your computer, and most likely, the battery will fail.

    MacBook Batteries and Temperature

    The first thing you need to know about the use of lithium-ion batteries (these are all batteries of modern laptops, tablets and phones). they cannot be left for a long time at very high or low temperatures. The recommended temperature range for battery operation corresponds to a comfortable temperature for a person (from 10 ° to 35 ° Celsius). That is, you can carry a laptop in a backpack in winter, but you should not leave it overnight in freezing temperatures.

    The combination of extreme temperatures and high or low battery levels damages nutrients. The most dangerous combination of a high battery level and a high ambient temperature, such a battery can swell or even catch fire. And in any case, a battery that has experienced severe overheating (or hypothermia) decreases the available capacity and decreases the service life.

    What is the difficulty

    Replacing the MacBook Pro Retina battery can create problems not only for an ordinary user, but also for an inexperienced craftsman, if only because the battery is securely glued to the topcase. The above equipment and consumables are required in order to thoroughly warm up and melt the adhesive composition. this is the only way to dismantle the battery and not harm the device.

    Under no circumstances should a household hairdryer or other household appliances be used for heating. High temperatures, which are practically not controlled, can cause serious damage to the motherboard or failure of certain functions of the device due to peeling of the modules. And the use of improvised means to separate the battery from the topcase can not only damage the loop, but also provoke its fire, which can also render the MacBook Retina unusable.

    It is also worth noting that the MacBook Pro Retina 13 and 15 batteries from different model years are similar, but not interchangeable. For example:

    • battery А1437 is suitable only for MacBook Pro Retina 13 2012-2013, with identifier А1425, defined in MacOS as Late 2012 and Early 2013. It is also worth noting that the battery for MacBook Pro Retina A 1425 has a specific contact pad, which, with an inexperienced approach. easily deteriorates and destroys the laptop;
    • A1493 battery is designed for MacBook Pro Retina 13 2013-2014, with the A1502 identifier, defined in MacOS as Late 2013 and Mid 2014;
    • A1582 battery is also intended for MacBook Pro Retina 13, with the A1502 identifier, but 2015, which is defined in MacOS as Early 2015;
    • battery А1417 is intended for MacBook Pro Retina 15 2012-2013, with identifier А1398, defined in MacOS as Late 2012 and Early 2013;
    • battery А1494 is intended for MacBook Pro Retina 15 2013-2014, with identifier А1398, defined in MacOS as Late 2013 and Mid 2014;
    • A1618 battery is designed for MacBook Pro Retina 15 2015, with ID A1398, defined in MacOS as Mid 2015.

    MacBook Pro Retina A1398, A1502, A1425 Battery Replacement

    The i-Fix service center provides such a service as replacing the MacBook Pro Retina battery, offers favorable terms of cooperation to all owners of such models of laptop computers from Apple as A1398, A1502, A1425. We strongly advise you to refrain from carrying out this repair procedure on your own, since it is quite difficult to remove the battery on all these devices. for this purpose professional equipment, tools and consumables are required. Without them, there is a serious risk of damaging or even disabling the keyboard, trackpad and other parts.

    How do we change the battery

    The i-Fix service center engineers replace the MacBook Pro A1398, A1502 or A1425 battery in almost the same way:

    • the bottom cover is traditionally removed;
    • power is cut off. That is, the battery cable is disconnected from the motherboard;
    • the cover is carefully removed, which is glued over the cans in the lower part of them;
    • the sections along the edges are warmed up with a constant temperature using the bottom heating;
    • with the help of a special tool and a solvent of the adhesive composition, the “cans” of the battery are carefully removed from the seats;
    • 2 screws holding the battery frame are unscrewed.

    After that, we remove the entire battery entirely, but this is only half the battle. Before installing a new power supply, the technician is extremely careful to remove the remaining adhesive on the inside of the laptop case, leaving the surface perfectly clean, grease-free and ready for installation. This seemingly insignificant step is very important, since the remnants of the glue not only thicken the structure, but can also stick crayons to themselves, but durable debris that can puncture a new battery after installing it.

    The adhesive has already been applied to the new battery, so the master installs it very carefully and precisely to avoid the slightest distortions. Then the battery frame is screwed to the topcase, the loop is connected and the complete assembly of the device is performed.

    As you can see, replacing the MacBook Pro Retina battery is a procedure that requires not only the use of special equipment, but also accuracy, special skills and knowledge. Contacting us will help to restore normal operation of the laptop and avoid any problems in the future.
