My Problem

My mid-2011 Macbook Air was up to 971 battery cycles (don't judge) and was only keeping its charge for 2-3hrs compared to the 8hrs it managed when new.

My Fix

The repair could not have been easier, and the battery-life is now back up to 8hrs again. Plus I got to feel like a total bada$$ while pretending I was one of Olivia Pope's gladiators checking a client's computer for bugs. (there were no bugs)

My Advice

The dust, oh the dust. So much dust. Be prepared for the dust.

My Problem

Battery was faulty

My Fix

Repair went great, screws out, battery replaced, screws in.

Easy and fast!

My Advice

I recommend hanging out the "Self-Repair-Manifest". I did it at work, great inspiration :)

Only real advice: This repair is extremely easy and very useful! Good luck!

My Problem

Battery was draining fast and it was time to replace

My Fix

Quick, easy and painless. Just make sure you have the proper tools and be careful not to strip the screws.

My Advice

Just make sure you have the proper tools and be careful not to strip the screws.

My Problem

My MacBook Air battery had a "service battery" condition after a few years of use. I used iFixit to seek advice and see a video of a possible repair. Since a Apple store is very far away, I decided to do the repair myself, using the required tools. The installation of the battery was as easy as the iFixit video, and within 3 days, I had a new battery. I definitely recommend iFixit for all DIY repairs on electronic devices.

My Fix

Easy as apple pie. The tools provided fix the little screws perfectly. I am glad that I purchased exactly what you recommended.

My Advice

If you can use a screw driver, you can do this battery repair replacement.

My Problem

Original batter had ceased taking a charge.

My Fix

The repair took 5 minutes with no issues.

My Advice

The repair guide is huge in helping you remember what screws go where. I would include in the tools needed a can of Dust off. Was very surprised at the amount of dust and misc unidentifiable crumb like things stuck to the case and all over the mother board. Having to blow them off with my breath not the best practice.

My Problem

After 3 years of heavy use my original battery was loosing capacity significantly. The process process of battery change in Apple Authorised Service was very complicated - two visits (one for diagnostics and second for battery change) and leaving my laptop there for one week was not acceptable.

My Fix

All went very ok, from moment of order to tighting last screw it takes 4 days. Total amount of work was less than 10 minutes.

My Advice

Do it, it is very easy and cost / time effecitive process. Mainly if you can't be without computer or let it in the service due to security reasons (like me).

My Problem

Macbook Air battery needed to be replaced.

My Fix

Instructions were clear and easy to follow. Now my battery doesn't die so quickly and holds a charge.

My Advice

Make sure you keep the screws in a safe place while you're changing the battery.

My Problem

MBA was almost three years old with heavy daily use - battery was so dead it was failing unpredictably.

My Fix

Extremely well, 5-10 mins start to finish.

My Advice

go slow with the pentalobe screws, the screwdriver is good but the design doesn't allow for much torque.

My Problem

My battery has been lasting for less and less time over the last few months while performing the same tasks and so I decided to replace it.

My Fix

The replacement was super easy. The iFixit guide was helpful but it was a simple screw replacement and then making sure the long screws went back in the long holes and the same for the short screws.

My Advice

Nope, the tutorial was very easy to follow and covered all the steps. Thanks guys!

My Problem

my battery was not working propely anymore.

My Fix

Very well , it's very easy to replace, no hassle. The ifixit videos are very useful.

My Advice
