battery replacement

by macadmin

My Problem

Did not want to have to send laptop to apple store for simple battery replacement.

My Fix

Simple, cheaper, and much more convenient than sending machine to apple store for such a simple repair.

My Advice

I had to fully discharge and recharge the battery a few times before the system seemed to calibrate the new battery right. Before a few charging cycles it would sometimes stop charging at 98% or 99% full and the charger would turn green as if it were fully charged.
