Is it necessary to reset the SMC after an emergency battery swap?
My 2012 MBP developed a battery bulge but in this case, I was extremely lucky that it wasn’t severe enough to hinder the replacement process and I was able to get it out as if nothing happened. In addition to timing, I also had an extra used battery I was able to rescue and get back into the game as if nothing happened.
Since I kind of lucked out and was able to replace the battery in an emergency (albeit with a used one) since I caught the trackpad bulge, do I need to reset the SMC of the Mac as well? The long term plan now is to buy a new battery, especially since I put a 839 cycle pack in - but it’s better then a broken trackpad and a fire for now.
Is dit een goede vraag?
