Hi, I purchased my macbook in April, 2006. I've had this problem for over a year, where my macbook says the battery is fully charged and when I unplug it it says I have a couple hours of battery life. After about 5 minutes though, the computer just shuts down. Only yesterday did I find out there was a recall on the battery. I didn't bother looking for help prior as I figured I'm well beyond my warranty, so it would be pointless. http://www.apple.com/support/macbook_macbookpro/batteryupdate/ My macbook falls between the dates posted and has one of the symptoms: "Battery exhibits low charge capacity/runtime when using a fully charged battery with a battery cycle count (as shown in System Profiler) of less than 300." My cycle count is 37. It says it extends the battery coverage for 2 years, if that's in addition to the 1 year coverage, I should still be covered. And in another thread, I read this: "For batteries, if it starts to fail before 300 cycles or 3 years, they will replace it for free". Anyways, I called support today, and the guy said since I am not covered, I'd have to pay $50 for help or go to an apple store, but he did allow me to quickly get some help. Once I described it to him and he checked into it, he said they stopped the recall as of July 2008, which seems to go against everything I've read here and doesn't seem right. He also said it'd be a waste to go to an apple store because they won't be able to help. Do I have a shot at getting a replacement battery? And if so, what is the best way to go about it?
