It's not really the purpose of this blog to focus on the problems associated with Apple laptop batteries, but it's certainly been interesting to see the popularity of those articles, and their high ranking on various search engines.

A number of Mac users have written to tell me that they've had similar types of problems. A smaller number played down the problems, with one person actually telling me I was wrong.

Then today, there was this:

Consumer Reports: 1.8 million Apple laptop batteries recalled for fire risk.

So, with that, I'd say: yes, there does seem to be a problem.

Is it directly related to my MacBook experiences? At first glance, it seems not, but then, it's quite difficult to say for sure. There's more to all of this than just a battery. There's circuitry to monitor the battery's level, circuitry to perform the recharge function, and logic to make decisions about when and how much / how long to charge. It's all related.

Anyhow, Macbook is still a nice laptop computer. I use it a lot, and I hope we get these problems behind us very soon.

I bought a replacement battery for my Apple laptop about a month ago from and it works great. Is there any reason to think that a replacement Apple laptop battery would be any worse than the manufacturers? My concern is the laptop battery fire risk; would this be a risk with a replacement battery?

Yes, there certainly are. I am a user of Apple MacBook Pro and I have been using the laptop for a year only but I am suffering on several occasions with the battery. I have already approached Apple Support UK but it is still popping up again.

Replacement battery is never as same as the original one. Original battery and replacement battery are never the same in case of apple.

Unfortunately, problems with MacBook batteries do arise, including the MacBook not lasting as long as it once did on a full charge, or the MacBook switching itself off seemingly randomly even if the battery appears to indicate a useful charge. Personally, I use Dell laptop and i was getting the same problem with my laptop then I went through
