MacBook battery taking considerably long time to charge
I made a recent thread regarding my MacBook’s tendency to abruptly shut down upon low battery, and I feel like that particular issue is on track to be resolved fairly soon. I do have another inquiry, however, that I did not feel was quite fitting for that thread in particular. So I made a new one.
To be straightforward, the battery on this MacBook (White Unibody, Mid 2010, MN A1342) takes a considerably slow time to charge. I am using an 85W MagSafe charger, as I do not have the 60W charger ideal for this model, informed that only the required wattage will be drawn regardless. I plugged it in at a percentage level that was unknown, left it sitting completely shut down for about two hours, and turned it back on to find it only charged to 59% during that period. As of writing this, it is estimated that my battery will be fully charged in roughly four and a half hours.
Looking at CoconutBattery, it appears that my MacBook is steadily drawing around 4.70 watts. Oddly enough, when I plug it in for charge when the battery is near dead, it draws between 20 and 25 watts, and the amount of draw tends to deteriorate over time to the 4.70 area.
I do not believe the issue is the charger, as I am able to charge my main laptop (MacBook Pro 15”, Mid 2012, MN A1286) much faster, at consistently around 35 watts. I wonder if the issue pertains to the new third party battery that this laptop shipped with. The charger IS a genuine Apple charger.
Hope for some help. Thanks.
