    I have a question for everybody.

    I have a 15in retina MBP and it has apple care. I took it to Power Mac to service and replace parts. However, they cannot replace the battery as their diagnostic tools indicate that it is not due for replacement.

    But the cycles on my battery is now over 1000 and the consumption time from my first day of use to 2015 goes from 6 hours on 100%-5% charge; and now the consumption time now goes to 2.5 hours on 100%-5% charge.

    I want to know if Power Mac's reasoning is valid? I really need to replace my battery.

    I think a battery is considered a consumable part which is normally not covered by AppleCare. Replacements are cheap and locally available on eBay.ph. Just make sure you get the exact model.

    "MacBook Owners - Your battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 1000 complete charge cycles. The one-year warranty includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. Apple offers a battery replacement service for all MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro notebooks with built-in batteries." http://www.apple.com/batteries/service-and-recycling/

    Try another service center. My suki for all Applecare service is MSI Digicare in Libis. They have a direct line to Apple Asia, and can commit to a repair on-site (unlike stores which cannot commit on the spot because they have to send it to a service center). Replacement parts usually take a week to arrive.

    AB-Blanc in Cubao is my go-to guy for repairing my Macbook. He also sells batteries. Just look for his page on Facebook for contact details
