A MacBook battery has a limited life span. Your MacBook battery is likely the first component you need to replace.  A battery replacement is the most economical way to give your MacBook a new life. If your MacBook Pro or Air has the following symptoms, it is time to replace the failing battery.

     1. The battery will not last long after fully charged.

     2. The battery charge circle count is more than 1000 circles. 

     3. The battery can not be charged or detected.

     4. The battery status bar shows these messages: Service Battery, Replace SoonReplace Now.

A small per cent of battery charging problems such as “battery not found" is caused by the logic board charging circuit. If you have a battery-related problem in your logic board, your problem will remain even you have replaced a brand new battery. Our logic board repair service will get the issue covered.

Understand the MacBook battery status notification 

Normal” means your battery is fine. Your battery retains more than 80% of the original capacity.

Service Battery” means the battery has degraded to less than 80% of the original capacity. Usually, the battery still can last for two or three hours of normal usage. You may choose to replace the battery but it is not urgent. The battery could last for a year or two if you connect your MacBook to the charger most of the time to reduce battery usage.

Replace Soon” means you need to arrange a battery replacement soon. Apple has not specified the criteria of this message. Our test data shows that this message means your battery retains less than about 50% of the original capacity. If you still use the battery, keep an eye on it and make sure the battery is not swollen. If you notice that your touchpad cracks or pops up, you most likely have a swollen battery. You need to replace the battery immediately to prevent more damage.

Replace Now” means that your MacBook can see the battery, but very little or even no current can flow in or out of the battery. If you disconnect the charger, the MacBook will shut off at once. The battery finally comes to the end of its life.

No Battery Available" with a cross mark on the battery icon means your MacBook cannot communicate with the battery at all. Your battery is either completely dead or not connected to the logic board properly. Usually, replacing the battery can solve the problem. But from time to time even when you replace the battery, you still get the “No Battery Available" message. This symptom is a strong indication that your logic board is faulty. You need to get your logic board repaired by a component-level repairer.
