Apple has fast become a brand exuding trendiness and style, which is attributed to its sleek, simple design and innovative technology. In recent years, its portable devices and smart phone technology have made Apple one of the leaders in technological advancement, making computers and tech gear accessible to everyone.
Apple laptops are some of the most desired products in the industry. Many of its designs have been borrowed or copied by competing manufacturers. Mac laptop batteries are known for their high quality and durability, representative of the brand’s overall standards. While the brand as a whole may not be cheap, Mac laptop batteries in our inventory come with very affordable price tags.
About Apple and Mac Batteries
Due to the nature of the brand, the Apple laptop battery is designed separately for different laptop models, which may make finding a replacement a bit of a challenge. However, at Laptop Battery Depot, we have a diverse inventory so you can find the best Apple laptop battery for your machine.
Mac laptop batteries are slim but store plenty of power.
There are generally two types of batteries used by Apple laptops: nickel-metal hydride and lithium ion. Nickel-cadmium, a third type, is virtually obsolete these days. The type of battery generally depends upon the laptop model, and unless you want to send your laptop to the manufacturer for reconfiguration, you should stick with one battery type.
More recently, some Mac laptops allow you to upgrade from nickel-metal hydride to lithium-ion. Though it is slightly more expensive, lithium-ion will provide you a much longer run time.
The newer Apple laptop batteries are not removable without help from the manufacturer. These new batteries are made from a lithium polymer. Lithium polymer is easier to shape and slim down, perfect for the laptop’s new design. This means you might want to call or go to the Apple Store for more information about installing your Mac replacement laptop batteries.
Despite the compact size and slim appearance, Apple laptop batteries are surprisingly powerful. With a single charge, a Mac laptop battery can last up to 8 hours. However, given enough use and age, a laptop battery’s capacity will decrease and may not last longer than 30 minutes on a charge.
Mac Battery Care
To get the most out of your Apple battery, take care of it.
Assuming your battery is removable, keep your battery clean. Using a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol, clean the battery’s contacts. This will maintain a good connection between the battery and your laptop.
When storing your laptop, keep it in a cool, dry area that is away from heat and metal objects. However, do not store the laptop for extended periods of time. If you store the laptop without actively using it, the battery may fail to hold a charge at all.
Of course, even with superb care, you’ll need to buy a replacement Mac laptop battery eventually. Search through our inventory by brand or model number to find the right battery for your Mac laptop.
