    On a MBP 15 inch. I already had the battery replaced in February under the warranty because the battery life sucked. Now the replacement batter, 103 days later is hot and lasts only 15 minutes

    I called apple and they pretty much said, screw you, nothing we can do, the batter is 13 days out of the 90 day warranty. The REPLACEMENT battery is defective, doesn't that allow for another replacement. Right now I am just using the power cord instead, don't want to burn the house down or anything.

    What can I do?? I'm really reluctant to purchase a new battery for it to burn out right past the warranty, plus I don't feel like giving any of my money to Apple right now when they won't stand behind their problem.

    Thanks!!

    Under Coconut battery and system profiler, the battery is at 21% capacity (1208 mAh of 5500 mAh)

    Send an e-mail to steve@mac.com

    It is not read by him, but people in his office. People have been quite successful, just mention how much you love macs, but this is unacceptable and cross your fingers :)

    are you pulling my chain? :) I wouldn't think he would have an actual email address because he would be inundated with emails. Hey but it would look good coming from a .mac account, lol.

    i don't get it. Macs have a 1 year warrenty not a 3 month one. Bring it to an apple store and they'll fix it.

    The computer was bought in May of 06, the battery was replace Feb 13th of this year. Even though the computer warranty is already up, the battery warranty would still be valid enough to replace (the battery) 13 days ago.

    And this is my main computer too, sucks

    The battery is covered for the first year. All replacement parts have a 90 day warranty if that exceeds the normal warranty on that part.
