MBP 2011: Service Battery
Posted by: space-time
Date: October 10, 2018 07:48AM
2011 MBP 15"

Battery was full or almost full. I am using the machine and all of a sudden screen goes dark. I plug it in and come back alive. check battery, 0% and I see Service Battery. But it is charging, now it says 2% as I type this.

I guess I need a OWC or Anker battery, Apple no longer sells parts for this machines, unless I fly to California or Turkey, LOL.

Anyone in California willing to take a trip to Apple store for me? LOL

meanwhile the other 2011 MBP, 13" model, seems to work fine, although kids complained a few days ago that battery didn't charge. I think the MagSafe connector was not attached properly.


EDIT: why is this NOT CHARGING if I have a 60W power adapter attached?

zapping PRAM on the 15" unit (the first one with bad battery) results in no more warnings. WTF?

Not sure, but i think the 15" Macbook Pro uses an 85W charger, not a 60W. 60W will work, but charge more slowly.

yes, already put it back on the main desk and it works fine there, problem solved after zapping PRAM. Now I have issues with the 13" machine.

You're getting some serious cycle time out of your batteries. Sounds like whatever your routine is, it's working. Our laptops get a lot of plugged in time, so the cycle counts are lower, but eventually the batteries still fail. The C2D MBP I'm typing on has a NewerTech battery from OWC, which replaced the second OEM battery, because it was down to 15 - 20 mins tops, less if doing intensive stuff. The original battery plumped and was replace by AppleCare, and while the replacement OEM battery was in hibernation, after the OWC replacement, it has plumped now, too. All three of those batteries, plus a couple of other MBP's thrown in, don't have 936 cycles combined. You're ding good, kiddo.

That's a damn good cycle count for still being normal (after the PRAM). I have 2011 15" MBP and 11" MBA and the MBP had a dead batt, replaced with OWC's (works perfectly now) and the MBA only has around 450 cycles on it.
