broken wires in battery

Block Image

Block Image

I dismantled the battery and found that two of the wires (white and yellow) were disconnected from the pcb.

The pcb is an apple A1281-R1.PCB.

On the pcb there are 4 soldering points for the wires connected to the battery elements, red (main), black (5th&6th element), yellow (3th&4th element) and white (first & second element)

Who can tell me where the white and yellow wires should be soldered ?

Is this a good question?

post a couple of images with your question. That way we can see what you see....


Here are some pictures.

There are 3 soldering points close together for black, white and yellow.


Working on Li-ion batteries is akin to working on a CRT, extremely dangerous! Special precautions must be taken to avoid Li-Ion battery fire up or explosion that can cause serious injuries. Lithium when comes in contact with water or air's moisture burns violently. Never try to extinguish such a fire with water! Only with a suitable extinguisher. A short circuit, reverse polarity, accidental damage or heat over 100 degrees Celsius a Li-Ion cell. It can be really dangerous. I'll go so far as to say that if you're here seeking advice you really should put the soldering iron down and back away from the project
