So now that you’ve decided to replace the battery, there are several ways to do so. Here, we list down 4 ways that you can replace your MacBook battery and go through these options with you.

Apple Warranty

If your MacBook still has its warranty, Apple will provide you a battery replacement for a faulty or excessively degraded battery free of charge. In Singapore, Apple provides a limited one-year warranty, similar to the one in the US. If you purchased AppleCare for your MacBook, this coverage extends to three years.

You can check your warranty status on Apple's Check Coverage page using your Mac's serial number. Find your serial number by clicking the Apple menu at the top-left of the screen and selecting About This Mac. The benefit of this option is that you won’t be spending any cent because it is still on warranty.

The second option would be replacing your battery at Apple’s official service center. Apple recommends you use first-party or third-party authorized service centers to replace the battery. This is generally the most expensive option, but it's also the safest. The procedure is less likely to go wrong, and Apple provides a 90-day guarantee for any work performed.

Assuming the service isn't covered by warranty, a typical MacBook battery replacement costs  S$188 for a MacBook Air or S$288 for a MacBook Pro. And if you require the drive to be shipped, you will need to pay an additional fee.

To start your MacBook battery replacement with Apple, go to the Apple's Mac Service and Repair website and click Start a service request. If there are no Apple stores nearby, the website will suggest authorized third parties who can perform the work instead. These technicians undergo the same training as Apple's, and provide the same guarantees.
