Why won’t my Mac­Book charge?

Mac Format - - APPLETALK -

I have a Mac­Book Air that’s re­cently re­fused to charge from the mains. When the MagSafe con­nec­tor is plugged in, the bat­tery icon doesn’t show that it’s charg­ing. If I pull the con­nec­tor out, it turns off in­stantly. Any ideas? Jus­tine O’Keefe It sounds as if your bat­tery is dead. Hold å and click the bat­tery icon to see the bat­tery info panel. If it says ‘Con­di­tion: Re­place Now’ or ‘Ser­vice Bat­tery’ then this con­firms it. Bat­ter­ies can fail if they ‘re left un­charged for weeks at a time; high tem­per­a­tures can kill them within hours. Have a look at the cy­cle count – how many times it has been charged. The orig­i­nal Airs could only be charged 300 times with­out los­ing ca­pac­ity. A new bat­tery for the Air will cost £109 from an Ap­ple au­tho­rised ser­vice cen­tre.
