Battery swelling and nowhere to find replacement battery
I been using my macbook for 6 months and started noticing my battery got swollen 2 months ago even thought it’s new and unfortunate thing is i have no way to give it to apple care since i live in mongolia and need to wait till covid restrictions goes down to ship it to authorized places that can fix this free cuz this machine still under warranty so i’m out of choices but get it services here maybe remove the battery and power it only using usb-c charger for now, there are some macbook 2018 15 inch battery around my local area that looks like the one in 16 inch and i want to know if it fits and is it compatible with the battery connector and power delivery and such. Thanks.
Well, I did get in contact with Apple and they gave me 2 options which I had expected and the reason why I hesitated to even contact them, first option is get it serviced here which would void the warranty but quicker and safer, second option is to ask someone's help overseas and ship my laptop to that person where lives in a country that official Apple services exists. Very bummer.
I live in Mongolia and there's no Apple authorized services here that could replace my battery under warranty. I could ship it to get it repaired but Mongolia is in quarantine with the borders closed, Airlines and Post Offices barely working which why I wanted to pull out the battery ASAP so even battery exploded the rest of the machine would be safe just missing a battery that I could buy for around $150 or $200 instead of smoked up $2400 MacBook Pro with most of the internal stuff damaged and probably won't get any repair but left needing to buy a new one.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
