All devices sold on Back Market go through a rigorous refurbishment process under strict quality control requirements. Since battery health is often top-of-mind, here’s more about what you can expect.
What will the battery health be?
Battery health, or battery capacity, refers to a battery’s ability to store and deliver electrical energy. The battery health will be displayed as a percentage, which is the result of comparing your battery to a new one.
Every MacBook on Back Market must have an initial battery capacity of at least 85% at the time you receive your device. To check your MacBook battery’s health, you can download the coconutBattery app and check the percentage bar under “Design Capacity” as shown in the image below.
What will the battery life be?
Battery life is how long your battery lasts after being fully charged. Our expert technicians created a table showing the relative battery life you can expect from your device by model. This table is solely for information purposes and may not be perfectly accurate since battery life varies by use and configuration.
If you need to know the model of your MacBook, you can find it on the device itself, on its Back Market product page, or in your order confirmation email.
