My Problem

I needed to replace my battery

My Fix

very well

My Advice

nothing to complain about it

My Problem

The old battery was not charging well and the charge only long for two hours and the MacBook Pro stop sending the alerts for low charge when you use it.

My Fix

Good, I didn't receive by now a complain from my customer and he told me the performance is good and normal for the battery

My Advice

No, just follow iFixIt advice and videos.

My Problem

After over 2,000 charge cycles on my originally battery it was no longer holding a strong charge.

My Fix

I first tried to replace it with a cheaper amazon battery and totally wasted my time as the battery was defective. The IFIXIT battery worked perfectly and installed in just minutes.

My Advice

I first tried to replace my battery with a cheaper amazon battery and totally wasted my time as the battery was defective.

My Problem

Old battery didn't last very long, usually only and hour or two after charging.

My Fix

Repair itself was easy, but battery supplied was not much better than the one I replaced. I now get a couple hours after charging. When it was new it was about 10 hours.

My Advice

Don't buy this. Waste of money.

My Problem

The original battery inflated like a balloon.

My Fix

Perfect.

My Advice

You can rely on iFixIt? Yes, they have the experience and give you a good advice.

My Problem

Battery life was less than one hour.

My Fix

Easy Peasy.

My Advice

Easy. There are 10 screws that hold attache the bottom of the laptop: 3 long, 7 short. Make a small mark at the screw holes on the back cover to remember where the long screws insert. Once open, use some canned air to get rid of dust bunnies. There are 2 tri-tip screws that hold the battery in place. Be careful removing the battery cable from the logic board. I used the plastic wedge under the battery cable first to begin prying it off the board.

My Problem

I had to replace the logic board and battery.

My Fix

Battery replacement was easy, the logic board took exactly what the guide said as well.

My Advice

Have the tools ready and within reach.

My Problem

battery was super old and lasted less than an hour

My Fix

super easy.

My Advice

triangle screw was tricky, i recommended getting one from this side before openning yours.

My Problem

I received an OS X warning that I needed to replace my MacBook Pro's battery. I was willing to pay Apple to replace, but the Apple Store would not promise to have battery on site for a quick replacement for a scheduled Genius Bar appointment. I depend on my computer so I needed a fast turn around. In addition, Apple does not consider this battery user replaceable.

My Fix

The repair was quick and simple. I now have a laptop I can use while on the go without worrying about my battery life.

My Advice

I wish I would have not wasted my time trying to arrange the replacement with the Apple Store and just ordered the battery from iFixIt in the first place.

My Problem

The battery life had was less than 90 minutes.

My Fix

I ordered a battery and related tools. Used I-fix-it directions and replaced the battery in less than 30 minutes. Now operating normally.

My Advice

Go for it. You can do it!
