Important notice for batteries in certain MacBook Pro units

Cupertino, California — Apple today announced a voluntary recall of a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units which contain a battery that may overheat and pose a safety risk. The units were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017 and can be identified by their product serial number. The recall does not affect any other 15-inch MacBook Pro units or other Mac notebooks.


To find if your Macbook Pro battery is affected go to

MacBook Pro, no battery performance hack

Almost one year ago, I’v removed my Macbook Pro battery…
Since that day… my laptop was f*cking slow.

This is how I’v solved it – following the article from http://www.rdoxenham.com/?p=259.

Find out our model’s name
MacBook-Pro-de-Paulo:~ PJunior$ system_profiler -detailLevel mini | grep "Model Identifier:"
 Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,1
Do the sh*t!

Lets move to root

sudo bash

Lets go to the right folder

bash-3.2# cd /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/


Lets move the .plist of our model out of that folder…
– change the destination folder to your needs –

mv MacBookPro5_1.plist /Users/PJunior/

Reboot and it’s done.
