How to check if my battery is an original one?
So about 3 years ago, I bought a 15” mid-2015 Retina MBP and had absolutely no issues with it.
Unfortunately, as you probably heard, this generation seems to have some battery issues, which determined Apple to start a recall program. Now, I’ve already checked my serial number here and it came back negative. In other words, my particular machine is not affected by the issue.
The thing is that I bought this machine second-hand. And I don’t know (I don’t think so…but again, I can’t possibly know for sure) if the battery has been replaced or not. When I bought it, it had about 30 charging cycles. But again, I don’t know how long did the previous owner have it for, or if he replaced the battery.
So, my question is: is there a way to tell if the battery inside the machine is genuine? I went to About This Mac -> System Report -> Power, and there is a bunch of information in there. Some serial number, some Device Name…and stuff like that. Is there a way to check, based on that, if the battery is ok or not?
Coconut Battery shows this.
