How to check the health of your Mac battery.

In today’s blog I am going to show your a quick and easy tip to see the health of your battery on your Mac laptop.

You want to hold down the ALT/OPTION key on your keyboard, then click on the battery icon in the top right side of you Mac screen (next to the clock).

As you can see, our battery is in good health, which is want you want to see. If you see a status other than normal, it might be a sign to get the battery diagnosed.

You may see any of the following conditions:

Normal: The battery is functioning normally.

Replace Soon: The battery is functioning normally but holds less charge than it did when it was new.

Replace Now: The battery is functioning normally but holds significantly less charge than it did when it was new. You can continue to use the battery until you replace it without harming your computer.

Service Battery: The battery isn’t functioning normally, and you may or may not notice a change in its behavior or the amount of charge it holds. Take your computer in for service. You can continue to use your battery before it’s checked without harming your computer.

I hoped you have learnt something useful that you can use. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via email hello@seatoskygeek.com or book a service using the Book Today button.
