A few short days ago I found an interesting warning on my Mac. My 1 year old battery needs service.
The service warning popped up right after the Raven incident New Year’s Eve Day. Some major paranormal intervention with my MacBook Pro? Or has my battery totally flaked?
Last year in February I had to get a new battery for the MacBook Pro. It was 3 years old, and the battery was tired. I can understand that. But a one year old battery totally hitting the skids? What gives?
Reading around the net over the past few days I’ve found that there might be an issue with the upgrade to Snow Leopard, and that may behind my recent battery issues. I’ve followed the advice on Apple’s website to no avail. The battery, when “fully charged” looses power within 30-35 minutes. Not good. And not the performance I had a few short weeks ago.
Guess this means I’ve got to get on the phone with Apple’s support folks. Since the battery is under a year old I’m hoping they’ll help me out. Those batteries aren’t cheap you know!
