I hope you had applecare otherwise maybe not worth replacing. just buy a 2017 soon at a discount.
I don’t have Applecare. It would have cost me $249.-. Battery replacement service costs $199.-. Even at discount 2017 Macbook 512gb would cost at least $1400.-. Just for reselling reason It’s worth the cost to replace the battery once. And i expect to use my baby for another 2-3 Years before i have to dump it and buy a completely new one.I hope you had applecare otherwise maybe not worth replacing. just buy a 2017 soon at a discount.
early 2016 Macbook, purchased June 2016
225 cycle counts, 2894 full charge capacity, 54.8%
Probable last Apple computer
How do you get the listing of the battery cycles?
Apple is saying the laptop is out of warranty and I am responsible for any repairs. 80% original capacity up to 1000 cycle counts is indeed the guideline, but also only applies WRT Apple covering the replacement cost under the original warranty or Applecare. Out of warranty, it's just a nice guideline.Excuse me but if this is for real then you are allowed to get a free battery if I'm not mistaken replaced for you by Apple. I am pretty sure that if the capacity is below 80% at less than 800 or some charge cycles then the battery is defective and you're warranty allows a free replacement.
And for my post
I have a 2017-09-11 15 inch macbook pro with 307 cycle count and it has 97% battery capacity and fluctuates between 92-98%
