Checking for accessories and additional features when purchasing a refurbished Mac is essential to ensure you have everything you need for a seamless and convenient experience. Some sellers may include original accessories and offer additional features that enhance the value of the Mac. Here's how to go about it: 

  • Ask the seller or refurbisher if the refurbished Mac comes with original accessories, such as charging cables, power adapters, and any other accessories that would normally be included with a new Mac. 
  • Check if the refurbished Mac is packaged in its original box or packaging. Having the original packaging can add value if you plan to resell the Mac in the future. 
  • Inquire if any components or parts have been upgraded during the refurbishment process. Upgraded components, such as a larger SSD or more RAM, can enhance the performance and value of the Mac. 
  • Check if the refurbished Mac comes with any additional software or applications pre-installed. Some sellers may include useful software that adds value to the package. 
  • Confirm whether the included accessories are covered by the warranty. It's essential to know if you can get replacements or repairs for any defective accessories. 
  • Verify that the refurbished Mac has all the essential ports and connectivity options you require, such as USB, Thunderbolt, HDMI, and Wi-Fi. 

Battery Health and Performance: 

At Loop Mobile, we understand that a healthy battery is essential for your refurbished Mac's longevity and overall performance. We take every step to ensure that the battery in our refurbished Macs meets your expectations. Here's how we provide battery confidence:

We strive to provide you with refurbished Macs that have reasonable cycle counts, ensuring that you get a battery that's capable of providing excellent performance for its age. 

Battery Replacements for Performance 

Our refurbishment process includes thorough evaluations of the battery's performance. If needed, we replace batteries to ensure that your refurbished Mac's battery life meets our stringent standards. A new or recently replaced battery can significantly contribute to the overall performance and longevity of your device. 

Your Battery's Journey 

It's important to note that a battery's lifespan is influenced by various factors. Usage patterns, charging habits, and environmental conditions all play a role.
