If you're experiencing bad battery life, we've got everything you need to replace it! These batteries are well adhered to the upper case of the computer so removing them isn't as straightforward as we'd like it to be. Fear not! Our kit offers all the tools needed to perform the repair and our guide shows you how to use the kit. The battery is an original OEM battery.

Part Assembly includes:

  • MacBook Pro 13" Retina (Late 2012/Early 2013) Battery
  • Installation adhesive

Fix Kit contents:

MacBook Pro Retina batteries are originally adhered to the upper case assembly as a single part from Apple. The parts we sell may have been separated from this assembly. Consequently, the battery adhesive may have some cosmetic flaws.

Note: Lithium ion battery shipping regulations limit the shipping methods for orders containing batteries. Domestic orders may only be shipped via Standard shipping. iFixit is not able to ship batteries internationally or outside the contiguous US at this time. iFixit Customer Support will contact you if your order needs to be modified after it is placed.
