My laptop stays at 1% and won't charge
This happened a few days ago but I realized that my Macbook Pro isn’t charging and stays at 1%. It powers off immediately if I unplug the charger. It says “Service Recommended: The battery is performing normally, but its ability to hold a charge is less than when it was new. You may want to consider replacing the battery”. What does it mean “the battery is performing normally but you may want to consider replacing the battery”?? Does it mean the battery is already old? I’ve also tried resetting SMC but it didn’t even turn back on when I pressed the power button. I have macOS Catalina 10.15.7 and haven’t updated to Big Sur since there’s not enough storage on my HD. I bought this in Spring 2019 and I’ve been using for almost 2 years now. Since the March 2020, I started using my laptop heavily since I started working remotely (10hrs~/day). I gotta admit sometimes I left it plugged to the charger even when it was 100% and just closed my laptop without turning the power off. I guess these kind of things eventually made my laptop’s battery to go worn out but is this normal? I just wanted to see if there’s any way I can fix it. If not, I guess I just have to pay to get it fixed. I can use my laptop if it is plugged to the charger so I’ve been using my laptop for the last few days but I don’t wanna keep using like this since it might cause another problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
