My 2012 MBA is experiencing an odd problem where it refuses to charge and I have to reset the SMC chip. It seems like I'm having to do this a couple times a week now. Is there a way this can be fixed so I'm not having to constantly reset the chip?

Thanks

You absolutely shouldn't need to reset the SMC frequently. I'd take it to Apple and let them diagnose the problem, which could lie with the battery, the MagSafe adapter or your logic board.

The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
