    Battery Problems :|
    So ive had my Macbook for a few months now (about 4) and i just recently had Apple send me a new battery. My old one last about an hour and a half on a full charge brand new. Well, upon getting the new battery, it worked fine for a week or two but now i've noticed its charge has severely declined. All i want is a battery that lasts longer than 2 hours on battery saver Is this problem something with my actual computer? Or is it just the battery?

    Any thoughts? Help?

    Leaving it on the charger for too long can eventually, in time, wear down the battery. You can also check how long it is lasting by clicking on the battery icon near the top right and selecting show>time. There are also "better battery" and "better performance" options you can use.

    Refund policy:

    Try looking under "product warranty" (if you have a warranty) or "defective items".

    Google "calibrate macbook batter" and it'll take you to an apple support page that will help you out.

    I recommend doing the cycle a couple times. If you get the istat pro widget from islayer it will calculate your battery's health and each time you do the calibration cycle (if done correctly) your battery's health should increase.
