    How long should 2 AA batteries last in an Apple wireless mouse? So far, I am getting about 4-5 weeks... that seems horrible.

    I bought an older (Late 2013) iMac from my university and with it came an Apple Wireless Mouse, the not-rechargable kind that takes two AA batteries. I got the iMac and mouse out of storage recently and put in some batteries I had, then noticed that a couple of weeks later I was getting...

    What does time on ac actually refer too?

    I just had to plug and and restart a totally dead notebook 0%. It is a 1 week old Ice Lake 13" MBP so as new as it gets. After about three days of it sitting in my backback not being opened it was dead. I assume it was close to 100% when it went into the bag. I used to own a 15" from 2013 and...

    Anything like this ever happen to anyone? I initiated a repair order for my MBP a couple days ago, and when I received my shipping box this morning inside it were two large 12V 18Ah batteries at about ten lbs each. 🤣 The lady on customer support was perplexed to say the least.

    Magic Trackpad… Batteries draining super fast.

    I have noticed the past few months the batteries are draining incredibly fast. I used to eke out two months or so… well that was when I bought the trackpad new a couple years ago. Right now I am down to 1 1/2 weeks, which is frankly ridiculous! For the record: Mac mini, 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5...

    Negative side effects when charging an iPhone with an external battery?

    This may seem like a silly question, but I've rarely used external batteries before, and honestly, I never charged my Apple devices with anything other than Apple chargers. Now, I know that people use external batteries for a lot of things, but then again, people will often sacrifice battery...

    AirPods Battery Degradation

    Do AirPods batteries (in the case and the earbuds themselves) experience the same kind of battery degradation as phones? We all know how bad battery degradation can be with phones. Does that carry over to this audio accessory? It is after all the same underlying battery technology (lithium-ion).

    MBP 15'' mid-2012: batteries keep bulging

    MacBook Pro 2.7GHz 15" Mid-2012 Unibody, A1286 I have a very strange problem with batteries. My initial Apple battery lived for 2 years and then got bulged. I usually use a laptop in “room conditions” but prior that day I traveled for 1-2 days in hot conditions (about 86 Fahrenheit) — if it...

    Battery questions - replacement + external

    Is there any brand other than Apple you would trust for an internal battery replacement for MacBook Pro early 2011? Or should I just take it in? What external battery would you recommend? Larger capacity (40000+mah) preferably. I have both an early 2011 MacBook Pro and late 2016 MacBook Pro...

    Question: Battery strange behavior. What to do? What to know?

    Hi again, MacForums friends. I have yet another question that I wanted to do some time ago. Previously, I said in a thread, that I have a faulty battery and asked what measures to take using my Macbook until I replace the battery. I own a 15-inch MacBook Pro Mid-2010, that I got as a birthday...

    Late 2011 MBP battery replacement

    Hey, guys, I just got a new 2016 MBP and will be selling my old late 2011 MBP. Problem is that since I used to use it in closed clamshell mode, I didn't notice that the trackpad wasn't working until recently. After opening it up, I discovered that the battery has swollen. So, before selling the...

    Is it normal to do voodoo every time Apple keyboard batteries die?

    I've got a couple of the apple wireless keyboards and although I like the feel and layout quite a bit I have some angst because of the wireless. I actually much prefer the older usb version as it has the same layout and feel but doesn't require batteries or bluetooth voodoo. Is it normal to...
