    Hello Everyone

    My Macbook Pro 13" retina (mid 2014) only powers up when plugged in and immediately shuts down if unplugged...I had it looked at by an apple service provider who discovered that the Logic board was defective and replaced it.....unfortunately though the battery issue is still the same. the battery was showing 68% a couple of months ago and has been dropping and now stands at 27%..I would like to replace the battery although I am worried that there may be another issue that is causing this problem.
    My question is what other parts could affect the battery. I do not want to pay 800 to replace the whole upper case since my mac is already out of warranty.
    Thank you

    Download and install coconutBattery into your Mac and run it to graphically check the battery condition. Compare the design capacity to the maximum charge in the coconutBattery app. If the maximum charge of the battery is above 90% then you may look into the software side.
    At 190 cycle count, your battery should be in normal condition instead of "replace now"
    I would suggest you to install a fresh copy of Yosemite or better El Cap which I found very stable on my computer.

    A status of replace now warrants a trip to the Apple Store.
