    Recently my battery health has dropped to 21% with only 79 cycles. I have tried calibrating the battery and have always done it at least once a month. Just this morning I was running on battery power and it shut off with 65% of charge left. I'm off to college in a month and am wondering if Apple will replace my battery even though I'm not under warranty.

    I would take it to an Apple Store but unfortunately the closest one is an hour and a half drive away. Should I try calling Apple?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    It's worth a call and/or a trip to the apple store. If their battery health program shows it bad they may replace it free. Though if it's over a year old, you might but out of luck.

    Considering it's a 2007 MacBook Pro, I'm going to assume that it's more than a year old. IIRC, Apple's battery program has since expired so you will not be given help with that. Your best bet is to call them but don't expect anything if they don't rule in your favor and be prepared to possibly buy another battery.
