    Battery life issue in Macbook Pro

    It used to 4 hrs backup in my Macbook Pro when I charge it fully but now I recognized that it shows up only 2 hrs as the backup time. It just reduced by half the time from last week. What is the issue? Can someone help me to make it work properly as before?

    Re: Battery life issue in Macbook Pro

    There can be genuine reason for your Macbook Pro battery to come down than usual because once you have used it for a year or so it will drop giving the normal backup time which it use to give but still you can check and calibrate the settings of your Macbook battery to give the best, just follow the steps given below

    STEP 1: Select the Blue Apple from the Menubar -> Select “About this Mac”.
    STEP 2: Select the option More info -> Power.
    STEP 3: Now in the battery information check for the Full charge Capacity(mAh) which should 4000’s for upper and 5000’s in upper. If it is not then you need to calibrate again.
    STEP 4: After doing twice or thrice of calibration and still see the same result of battery backup then it’s time to change your battery if it is old or visit the Apple Support nearby if it’s new and giving some issues as they need to replace it with a new one for your Macbook Pro.

    Disconnect the adapter after fully charged...
    remove all unnecessary apps from your mac...
    clean the temp data and bugs in your mac through antivirus...
    Don't use the laptop continuously for more than 9 hrs, if so give it an half hour rest...
    Prefer cooling pad and it can reduce heat of your mac..

    Hope you can understand...

    Hi,
    Battery is important to all electronic devices.
    You should implement some tips regarding the battery.If you implement these mentioned tips you device battery will maintain the life for long period.So,the tips are
    Switch off the bluetooth when you used after.If songs playing when you don't listen then stop the playing songs.
    Set the back ground light to medium or to low to save the battery for more minutes.If not using the wifi then turn off it because wifi feature consumes more battery.If battery life decreased suddenly contact the shore room and change the battery to new.Do this when you have warranty period itself.

    Hello Dear Dude


    How are you ??

    It is due to the

    Power Overload in the AC adapter

    Loose wires

    Clogged fan

    Overheated Processor

    Intermittent Short circuits

    ...etc.,


    The batter should be removed from the Laptop

    And then Allowed to cool in the Room Temperature

    Then Use the Battery again

    or else if you are financially good then you may go for the New one



    ALL THE GOOD LUCK
