Every time Apple introduces a product with a non user-replaceable battery, there is inevitably criticism from those who benefit from replaceable batteries. But apparently when you are being promised 8 hours of usage on a single full charge and 5 years of life for a single battery, such concerns fall by the wayside. However, all rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and may eventually need to be serviced. If you find yourself charging your MacBook Pro more and more frequently, it might be time for a new battery. How much is apple MacBook Pro battery replacement cost?

For products with built-in lithium-ion polymer batteries, the MacBook Pro battery should be serviced by Apple or an authorized service provider. Your battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 1000 complete charge cycles. And Apple offers a one-year warranty including replacement coverage for a defective battery. Moreover, if you purchased an AppleCare Protection Plan for your MacBook Pro, Apple will also replace the battery at no charge when it retains less than 80 percent of its original capacity. After service, Apple will provide a warranty against hardware defects in a replacement battery for one year from the date of battery service, like the warranty on your original battery.
But the warranty doesn’t cover batteries that wear down from normal use. Before servicing, Apple will test your product to find the cause of your battery issue. If your MacBook Pro is not covered, or in that case that you are not under warranty or AppleCare Protection Plan, you will have to get the battery replaced for a fee.
Under these conditions, when you need to get the macbook new battery on a 13 or 15 inch MacBook pro, all you need is an Apple Store around the corner and 129 dollars in your pocket. While as for the 17 inch MacBook Pro, the price is 179 dollars. Although it is a little expensive and not discounted, you’d better purchase batteries from Apple or an authorized service provider, as a fake one could damage your computer in a very bad way.
To sum up, if your battery has a manufacturing defect and it’s covered by the Apple Limited Warranty, AppleCare Protection Plan, or consumer law, Apple will take care of it at no additional cost. If unfortunately it isn’t, you may have to pay extra money. But what I want to say is that a MacBook Pro battery is likely to provide 8 hours on a single charge and last for 5 years under the best condition, regardless of whether there is a guarantee or not. Therefore, I guess it’ll be plenty of time before you have to worry about the replacement part.
