The great thing about Apple devices is how well their batteries can hold a charge. This is especially true of the Macbook Pro, which can last up to nine or 10 hours of use without being plugged into the wall. But, after a few years of owning it, your computer may need some help in successfully keeping a charge like it used to.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Let the computer breathe: Heat is a battery's worst enemy, and if you allow your computer to run hot too often the battery will quickly degrade. When using your laptop, be sure that all of the vents are unblocked so the machine can breathe properly.
  • Replace your computer charger: Sometimes the problem is not with the battery, but with the power cord. If you find this to be the case, the answer to your problem could be as easy as simply purchasing a new charging cord for you to plug your laptop into.
  • Unplug the laptop when it is fully charged: When your battery has reached its full charge, you should unplug the computer and use it unattached from the wall. Although charging it over and over will not necessarily harm the battery, it is good to allow the machine to drain a bit to improve its longevity.
