If your MacBook is having issues charging or shuts down as soon as you unplug it, or just don’t stay charged as long as it used to, you probably need a new battery. You can check the health of it by the following.

  1. Click the apple in top left corner of your MacBook
  2. Click About This Mac, then System Report…
  3. On the left hand side, click Power
  4. You’ll find more specifics about your battery at the top of the window

Always best to get the problem fixed before it starts to swell like two I had to replace this week. Here is a pic of one of them.
