What are the signs that your laptop Battery needs Replacing?
Your Laptop takes a long time to charge
A healthy laptop will charge quickly, so if you notice that yours is taking longer than usual—or if it’s not setting—the battery is likely a cause.
Your Laptop dies unexpectedly
When a laptop suddenly turns off, especially when it’s mostly or entirely charged, it could indicate a faulty battery. Glitches do happen, so if your Laptop dies, connect it to the power source to see if it will turn on. If it doesn’t, a new battery could resolve the issue.
Your laptop battery looks bloated
If your laptop battery is cracked or your Laptop looks puffy near the keyboard or trackpad, your battery is swollen. You should avoid using your device and not forcibly remove the battery—it’s rare, but damaged batteries can catch fire or explode.
Your laptop overheats
Your laptop cools itself as you use it. So, if you notice your computer feels hot, that means the battery isn’t working correctly. You might also hear the internal fans working on overdrive, unsuccessfully trying to cool your device. When this happens, unplug your laptop and stop using it to limit potential damage. Then, replace the battery.
Your laptop tells you
Both macOS® and Windows™ computers now alert you when your battery needs to be replaced. Bring your device to a laptop repair expert if you see this warning. If you need a new battery, check the warranty on your laptop to see if you’re eligible for a free replacement.
Your laptop battery dies sooner than it used to
Most laptops can last anywhere from 3 to 10 hours. If your Mac or PC needs to charge up more frequently—or if a full charge lasts only 15 to 30 minutes—it’s time to replace the battery.
