Why Does My MacBook Pro Battery Drain So Fast?
The number one reason why this happens is because of the MacBook Pro’s settings.
For example if your screen brightness is too bright or too low it can have a big effect on battery life.
If you have been using your MacBook Pro for a long period of time and suddenly put it in sleep mode to start charging and then come back and find that not much charge was added into the battery then there may be an issue with the charger itself.
You may have an external hard drive plugged in which is using
If you have a mouse or keyboard plugged in often this will also eat up power from the laptop’s battery life.
Also if you have been using your laptop for a long period of time and suddenly put it into sleep mode to start charging and then come back and find that not much charge was added to the battery there may be something wrong with the actual battery itself.
Try replacing the battery with another one if possible try doing so under warranty.
If none of these reasons are applicable to your situation then you should contact customer service to see what exactly is draining your power so quickly.
You should also check what apps/software is consuming too much power on your computer as well as clean out any software clutter which could be causing your battery to drain too quickly.
In fact it is highly suggested before you complete the tasks above that you update your computer to its latest software versions so as to avoid any possible problems from incompatible software.
You may have an external monitor plugged in which is using power
Another reason why your laptop battery may be draining quickly is that you may have an external monitor plugged in which is using power.
If you’re not using the monitor try unplugging it to see if that fixes the problem.
Also try checking which apps are using the most power on your computer so you can close them to avoid unnecessary battery drain.
If none of these options work have no fear! There are a few things you could try…
One method would be to reset your laptop’s hardware in other words go into safe mode and then reset it.
If that doesn’t work then another option would be reinstalling all system drivers.
That should do the trick!
If after trying any of these steps you find that the above information is not helpful in solving your problems perhaps consider taking it back to where you bought it and asking for an exchange or refund.
