Chapter 2: What is the Average Lifespan of a MacBook Battery?

Under normal use, the average lifespan of a typical MacBook battery is between two to three years. However, Apple does not prefer to measure the cycle of battery life by years. Instead, they prefer to name them by cycles.

It is critical to note that the lifespan of a MacBook battery can vary depending on the model of the laptop.

Once the period of that period is over, the performance or the capacity of the MacBook battery will start going down and you will have no other option but to get a replacement.

2.1 Factors that Affect the Lifespan of a MacBook Battery.

Although there is a definite lifespan of a MacBook battery, there are things that can make it to last for a shorter lifespan than what is expected.

They will force you to replace the battery earlier than what you had planned. These factors include:

-Completely discharging the battery: This usually happens when you leave the battery to completely drained before you charge it again.

Doing this habit frequently can reduce the lifespan of the MacBook battery.

-High temperatures: Exposing your MacBook to high temperatures over a regular basis can have damaging effects on its battery.

This is possible because heat accelerates the chemical reaction of the battery hence reducing its lifespan.

Also, extremely cold temperature can cause permanent damage to the battery.

 -Improper use: Just the way you handle the MacBook battery can determine whether it will have a long lifecycle or not.

Leaving the battery plugged to the power source for too long will reduce its lifetime. This is because it will end up accumulating excess heat which will have both physical and structural damage on it.

2.2 How to Improve the Lifespan of a MacBook Battery?

Would you like your MacBook battery to last for a long time up to its desired time? Here are some useful tips that can help you to achieve this goal.

(i) Activate the battery percentage

Even before you focus on improving the battery lifespan, it will be better if you can check and monitor the performance of the battery. This will give you the real-time data and you will be able to act in case the battery starts misbehaving.

Turning on the battery percentage feature is quite easy. Simply click the battery icon which is on the menu bar then select “Show Percentage”.

(ii) Update your software and applications

Apple has a habit of updating its operating system and other application software frequently. The updates are meant to improve the overall user experience on the macOS.

One of the things that these updates tend to focus on is the energy-saving feature. They are usually built to optimize their energy consumption and this will have a direct impact on the battery lifespan.

Do not underestimate the impact of a single software update. To update the software on your MacBook, just click on the Apple icon then select the “Software Update” option.

(iii) Utilize the energy-saver feature

Generally, a MacBook is designed to consume lots of power when in continuous use. The good news is you can regulate its power consumption with the help of the “energy saver” feature.

It rations the energy consumption of the device and ensures that the battery does not reach the critical power level. Here are the steps of activating the “Energy Saver” feature of the MacBook.

  1. Click Apple>System Preferences> Energy saver
  2. Activate the Automatic Graphics Switching feature
  3. Switch on the Put Hard Disks To Sleep When Possible

(iv) Shut off the background apps

Apps that keep running on the background of your laptop consume energy. The best option is to turn them off when you are not using the MacBook. To find out which apps are running, go to the “Activity Monitor option which is under the “Applications feature. Stop those applications that you are not using.

(v) Store the laptop at a cool place

As we have already said, high temperatures have a detrimental effect on the health of the laptop battery. To avoid this, store it in a moderate room temperature. It should not be too hold or too cold.

You should also clear the air vents of the MacBook to ensure that there is proper circulation of air which prevents overheating.

(vi) Don’t leave it discharged for too long

Let’s say you are going on a journey and you won’t be using the MacBook for long. Don’t leave it below 3% of battery charge. Ensure that it has at least a 50% charge. A discharged battery can be permanently damaged especially if it is left unused for a long time.

Although replacing a MacBook battery may sound like an easy affair, it is not usually smooth sailing. One of the things that may prove to be challenging is knowing when you should replace the battery.

Here are some of the most proven ways that will show you it is time to replace your MacBook battery:
