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!

My Problem

Battery not holding charge as long as when new.

My Fix

Repair went great. Instructions were right on. Not sure new battery is lasting any longer though. Will give it a few cycles and see.

My Advice

Clean the dust out of the computer while you have the back off. I used a computer air can cleaner.

My Problem

My mac is now going to 6 yrs and its battery is depleted till d charging light is constant green and whenever i pulled it out it wld juz die.

My Fix

Ordered the battery for my mac pro and got it within the week, mind you i stay in Singapore and to receive it in a matter of days is called efficient. So went thru all d teardown steps for replacement and now voila.. the light changed color for d 1st time in 2 yrs..

My Advice

dont wait to change the battery...

My Problem

Battery 6+years old, finally required a nonstop plug in charge. Basically, a desktop laptop. Slow and lots of beach balls was a normal function.

My Fix

So, I scouted this iFixit site and logged it for later. After reading many reviews. I was sold on the battery for sure. The information was spot on. Many review's expressed similar issues. The how to video's are totally awesome, and very direct. No time consuming yabba dabba do's and dont's. Just straight ahead, here is how to make it happen. Thanks iFixit!!!

After ordering Mid '09 MBP battery and two 2GB Ram cards and the tool kit, I decided to replace the battery in my 4GS iPhone too. I actually orded the liberation kit. I ordered everything on Saturday, and it was ready for pick up, on Wednesday. Awesome shipping. Installed the MBP battery and RAM cards in thirty minutes. Charged it overnight, and my Mac is back with El Cap. The iPhone 4GS battery was a very easy replacement too. The factory adhesive is very sticky and strong. Just take your time. The ground terminal comes loose, and needs to be installed back where it lives, after installing the new battery. Once again, take your time, and all can go well!! iFixit Rocks!!

My Advice

If anything, the 000 Phillips is a better fit than 00. Have a magnifying glass handy. Other than the tiny atmosphere of tinyness, and plenty of clean work area, it is just a smooth operation. iFixit makes it simple and fast.
