The batteries found in Macs are lithium-ion technology. These have been selected by Apple due to their high-power density and long lifespan. As you will be aware, the effectiveness of any battery is reduced over time. This is why it is so important to be aware of how to take care of your MacBooks battery.

Our Top Tips:

Li-ion batteries are more flexible than other, older batteries. However, it can be affected if left with no charge or full charge for longer periods of time.

  • Regular use is important
  • Try to let your battery complete at least a couple of discharge cycles each week
  • Don’t always plug your MacBook into your AC Adapter (as allowing discharge cycles is important to elongate the battery life)
  • If you are storing your MacBook, make sure it is not left either with zero charge or full charge
