MacBook Pro with few battery cycles, cant calibrate it
I own a 2017 MacBook Pro, Fn key model,
I’m having several issues with the battery, and the problem is mine and my own (i leave it always plugged in... my fault)
The battery has only 45 cycles but it shuts down sometimes at 50% charge, sometimes at 30%... the thing is that it never shuts down at 0
I have already tried resetting the SMC but it does nothing, I also attach CoconutBattery screenshot. I would like Apple to replace the battery but my nearest Apple store is almost 1000 km away! (i live in Mexico) so is it not an option.
I would like to calibrate the battery, but everywhere says I have to deplete it completely first and then charge it to the fullest plus 2 hours, the problem is that I cant fully deplete it because it always shuts down before it gets there!
Maybe the life span of the battery has shortened, but I still want the battery reading to be accurate, What can I do?
UPDATE: (April 16th, 2019)
I sent my MacBook with a friend travelling to Los Angeles, they checked the Mac at the Apple Store and as described, the battery had a problem, BUT they also had to supossedly change the Keyboard because the battery was attached to it? (…?) and my keyboard has a Spanish Layout and they only have English layout, and in total it would cost $350 USD + Taxes…
I called my friend in LA and obviously told him not to leave the Mac there because the price was excessive, i would rather purchase a battery replacement from IFixit and change it by myself
UPDATE 2: (July 27th, 2019)
2 months have passed since i did this but i wanted to update this anyways
I ended purchasing a new battery kit from iFixit and managed to change it myself, now the MacBook is working perfectly. Macbook was not in the replacing battery program
Is dit een goede vraag?
