What is the quality of the MacBook Pro replacement battery?

Block Image

Added image: Coconut app showing my current battery status

The battery life on my Macbook Pro (15", mid-2014, retina) has decreased significantly over the past few years, from about 8 hours of charge to barely 2, and I want to replace it, but don't want to pay $200+ at the apple store.

How does the replacement battery ifixit sells compare to the original battery that my laptop came with? I could not find any mention of a brand- what manufacturer is it coming from?

Also, some repair shops have told me that the top case may also need to be replaced along with the battery. Is there any truth to this? Will replacing my battery damage the trackpad since the battery is glued in? Any suggestions on how to avoid damaging these other parts while replacing my battery?

Is this a good question?

There is two methods in replacing your battery:

As for your batteries lifespan: How you use your system has a big bearing! Running your battery to the bitter end recharging and doing that over and over again will shorten your batteries life. Allowing your system to run down about 2/3 and then recharging is much better!

How about checking your battery using this app: CoconutBattery Take a screenshot of the main window and paste it here for us to see: Adding images to an existing question Lets see where your battery is now.

The IFIXIT battery is made by the same company Apple uses.

Update (06/28/2018)

You are getting close to the end of the batteries life (700 Cycles). Reference this Apple T/N: Determine battery cycle count for Mac notebooks. So its getting close to needing a new battery.

As for Apples battery supplier, they use a bunch of different suppliers as their need is so great, Simplo is one supplier.

Thank you. I added an image of the coconut app battery status check to my original post. I'm not exactly sure how to interpret it, but it seems like it's at 69% the original capacity. However, it used to last most of the day, and now it lasts two hours max, if I'm not running any power-hungry applications.

I typically don't run my battery until it completely dies, but I will keep that in mind more closely.

Okay, just curious, what is the company apple uses?

No battery lasts a really long time Its a consumable! So it will wear out.

The lifespan of a battery has more to do with how you use your system. If you can try keeping your system plugged in and don't let the battery get to low or fully drained as that burns a recovery cycle.

The quality of battery also has an impact. The expression you get what you pay for holds true! Cheap batteries ar the ones that are often that have failed Q/C or are cheap knock-offs. The seller is also important how long have they been around and what is their warranty and return policy.

Hello,

I bought my replacement battery for that same exact laptop on here. The first battery dropped very quickly in terms of performance, and as I monitored it via coconutbattery I was able to see that something was not right but I was too lazy / busy to take care of it.

Eventually I started to have random shutdown problems - most of which experienced when the MacBook Pro was running off the internal battery (not on AC). I contacted ifixit (a year after, mind you), and they sent me a new battery as a replacement.

In other words your mileage will vary, but if you go to a reputable source, they should stand behind their products. Sure, you will have to spend the time cleaning it and getting rid of the adhesive (you get better the second time around btw, hint: do not use acetone, use some light scraping with a strong plastic sprue, and use painter tape to remove the remaining residue), but in the end this is the cost of DIY.

As a side note, I should have qualified under Apple’s coating recall but the Genius flat-out refused to take the laptop when I told him it has a 3rd party battery in. So… Piece of advice, keep your old battery around just in case (or send it to me lol).
