My MacBook Pro's Battery is not holding on as it used to be. It gives only about 2 -3 hours of late. It also indicate 'service battery' when I click on the Battery icon. The machine is alomost three years old.

What are better options?

MacBook Pro, iOS 7.0.6

    1. did you often drain the battery very low?


    2. did you often /always have your macbook on charge,......or did you often / always BOTH have your macbook on charge AND in sleep mode?



    1 or 2 are harsh on the battery chemistry and therefore its longevity


    all batteries are consumables meant to replaced either in their own "due time" or early due to abuse / misuse.




    The option is replacing the battery.
