Thread: Battery Questions
10-01-2009, 04:06 AM #16
A measure of success! This morning, my computer decided it would recognise my battery! According to coconut battery, my battery is in a reasonable condition. The menu bar tells me it's 10 hours from fully charged, but that hasn't changed in about 20 minutes. When I'm feeling brave enough, I'll reset the SMC and see if that kicks my computer into charging the battery.
Also note that my computer is apparently 2000 years old.

744 load cycles is a lot...and under "normal" circumstances...might be a reason to believe that your battery is old & needs to be replaced. But since Coconut Battery is also reporting that your Mac is 24468 months old...maybe the 744 number is incorrect as well.
Also the remaining capacity of 91% would also indicate a good battery.
But...I still think that it would be a good idea to insert a battery that you know is definitely good.
Like I suggested before you could:
- buy a new battery (more expensive)
- buy a used battery cheaply somewhere (less expensive)
- or if you happen to know someone with a MacBook that uses the same battery...mabe you could pop it into your computer to see if it helps.
If your battery is not the problem...then it is something else...but we won't know for sure unless a 100% known good battery is used.
Hope this helps,
