I have a Late 2011 Mac Book Pro 15" and recently the battery has very quickly gone from several hours of battery life to all of a sudden only apparently having 5-10 minutes
and by quickly I mean over the course of just a few weeks..
What i want to know is is this the End of life for my battery or is it malfunctioning and need a battery reset
If this a battery reset issue how do I do this on a mac I used to do this in the BIOS when I owned a PC Laptop but no idea how to do this with a Mac Book since there isn't one
Is this something that can be done through AHT?
