I ordered a battery for my laptop because it said to replace battery soon.  How long can I let the new battery sit around as I wait for the old one to run out of more charge?  Will the new one become less effective if it sits around too long?

How much capacity is remaining on your current battery?
Check your power status
From the  menu: Hold OPTION and click System Information... èHardware è Power

The new battery will become less effective if you store it in a hot or humid environment. It should be stored at room temperature (22 C).
Long term storage (6 months):
Apple recommends that you store the battery with a 50% charge. If you store a battery when it’s fully discharged, it could fall into a deep discharge state, which renders it incapable of holding any charge. Conversely, if you store it fully charged for an extended period of time, the battery may experience some loss of battery capacity, meaning it will have a shorter life.

  • I want to buy a new laptop so my question is should i buy the new 2013 macbook air 13in or wait for the next model (june 2014) ?

    This will be my first mac laptop, so my question if i am goin to miss a huge jump in the specifications for the next year release or not ?

    We know there will eventually be a new MacBook Air (though the terms of use here prohibt speculation about it). We have no idea when it will come out or what it's specs will be. Retired Engineer's advice is exactly the same as mine. If you need a computer now, buy it. It is a powerful computer and except for the fact there's no 2TB SSD available (not that I could afford it if one existed) it could be my one and only computer. If you merely want a new computer, wait until you need one.

  • HT2736 I redeemed a gift card in an old account by accident. It doesn't appear I can transfer credit to my current account. Tried to gift songs from old one to current but credit card charged, then deleted cc info but still doesn't work. Suggestions?

    I redeemed a gift card in an old apple account by accident. It doesn't appear I can transfer the credit to my current apple account. Suggestions online were to gift songs from old account to new one but when I did my credit card was charged. I have deleted my credit card info and now it won't let me gift songs at all. Credit is showing in old account, any suggestions how to utilize?

    You cannot gift with a gift balance.  You must use cc to gift

  • If I have a new ipad should I use it until the battry runs out and then charge it... or first charge it for how much hours?

    Here is some info on battery/charging for apple products.
    ~ They normally come 2/3 charged, so you would want to charge it right away if you want a 100% battery.
    ~ Keep it out of the sun because the sun will take away battery life.
    - See link below for a lot of information on Apple products and batery life.

    I will look around for more information on this.

  • Can I change a new battery for my MacBook Pro 15' Retina? How?

    Can I change a new battery for my MacBook Pro 15' Retina? How?

    Hi!
    About a month ago, my MBPr 15", mid 2012 (Model Identifier10,1) showed, at first, Battery Service warning and on the next day X over the battery icon with Battery Not Available message in the status. MBP would run only and while the charger was plugged in, plug led would be always green, when connected. Battery test third party sw would not detect the battery, any longer. 
    Replacing upper case with battery/keyboard/trackpad, as per Apple,  in my country was too expensive, over 1000 USD, did't make any sense to me, so I've chosen DIY option (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLhHSIej9fs) with all necessary precautions like tools, ESD protection grounded pad in place and ordered "new" replacement battery from Hong Kong on Ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/400699766989?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STR K%3AMEBIDX%3AIT).
    Yesterday I came in new packing/sealed, I installed it, plugged the power cable on, plug led would turn green and then orange, I thought it's ok, but once system booted, I saw again X over battery icon and "Battery Not Available". I checked all the hints on internet, tried several times SMC and EPRON resets, no success. I filed complaint to Ebay supplier, he replied that battery undergone test prior the shipment, but ready for return and refund.
    So, I can make another try and buy the battery from Ebay but what if the problem is with my logic board? From one hand charger plug led lights orange when connected to MBP, on another hand System doesn't see the battery at all: No battery in the System info/Hardware/Power. it works absolutely fine when plugged-in to charger. I ran extended AHT (over pressed "D" key while powering on) twice with No Problem in return. So, my question is does it ultimately mean that Logic Board and power circuits are all fine and the whole thing is about "new bad" battery? I there any way to entirely test Logic board and narrow down problem origin?
    Thank you for attention in advance,
    Nurlan

  • How many hours does a brand new battery last after fully charged. I have a late 2008 Macbook Pro.

    How many hours does a brand new battery last after fully charged. I have a late 2008 Macbook Pro.

    clintonfrombirmingham is right, there is no way to exactly tell. But from personal experience, a new battery on a 2008 will last for about 2 1/2 hours with a higher screen brightness and doing something taxing to the battery (like gaming or running lots of 3D programs). But if you're just listening to music with the brightness all the way down, and no programs running, you could get up to 12 hours. So for average use, it should last you a whole business day (assuming you don't use it more than 30% 0f the time). Hope this kind of gives you more of an idea of what to expect:)

    I am trying to activate my program into my new computer (the old one was run over by a car) and it says I have exceeded my installations.  It's Adobe Audition 3 (you can see I've been using it a long time) and I rely on it for work everyday.  Please advise.

    The activation server for Audition 3 was shut down by Adobe several years ago.
    You now need to download the non-activation version provided by Adobe here
    Error: Activation Server Unavailable | CS2, Acrobat 7, Audition 3
    Install then enter the new serial number provided by Adobe at that link. Your existing serial number will no longer work.

  • Where can I buy a new battery for my macbook

    Where can I buy a new battery for my macbook

    Depending on the build year model configuration
    (reference serial number lookup online) you may
    have a MacBook w/ built-in battery, or maybe not.
    If yours does not have a user-accessible battery
    you may want to look into iFixit.com guides to see
    what they suggest for your specific MacBook.
    And then consider if you are up to the DIY steps
    with ability to do the complete service yourself,
    or if not, then contact a qualified certified service
    center to inquire their estimate for part + labor.
    However if your computer does have an easily
    replaced battery with external access where
    you are essentially looking at the battery, that
    is just a matter of identifying the correct Mac
    to get a matching part from reputable reseller.
    You could probably get a replacement battery
    from Apple, if the computer isn't really old...
    Or you could look online at places such as
    OWC where they offer a few batteries. Just
    be sure to avoid the low-end no-name clones
    from auction sites or cheap copy imports.
    Good luck & happy computing!
