Why Should Macbook Batteries Be Replaced?

Every year, your Macbook's battery performance will decrease. This is a natural thing. Because all batteries are like that.

The more often it is used, the less battery will hold less power.

When you first buy a Macbook, it may be used for up to 10 hours of use on a single battery charge. Until gradually it will decrease, starting from 9 hours, 8 hours, until finally 1 hour.

If you are a person who often works using a Macbook in different places, then having a healthy battery is a must.

Because if the Macbook's battery runs out even though your work isn't done yet, this will be a problem. Therefore, you need to replace the Macbook battery regularly.

Note: In the tutorial above I wrote using macOS Big Sur 11.1. If you are using another version of macOS, there may be a slight difference in the appearance of the menu and also the layout.
