Is It Possible To Replace The Battery In Macbook?

The battery is often the first part that come out of order in older MacBooks. In case of this issue, good news is that you can probably replace it on your own.

A Note on Warranties

As a matter of fact, when you’ve got an old Mac and its battery isn’t holding enough charge, it most likely won’t be covered by warranty, because its warranty period has expired.

In another case, if you’ve got a Mac and it’s not too old that isn’t holding a charge or won’t charge at all, maybe it is defective and so Apple will fix it for free. And if you bought your MacBook in the EU, that warranty period could last as long as six years. It’s worth checking, since replacing the battery is an important issue.

A Note on Safety

The battery inside your MacBook like Lithium-ion batteries —can literally explode. This is an important point that you should pay enough attention, when you’re considering a repair job like replacing the battery.

Before removing your battery be careful about the battery is fully drained. Moreover, it’s necessary to know, how you’re going to dispose of it. You shouldn’t just throw it away. It’s better to take it to a tech recycling center where they will have set up to dispose of batteries safely.
