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 15" Retina (Mid 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 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.

My Problem

Battery was draining on no time at 386 cycles!

My Fix

I took a serious shortcut and saved a ton of time and effort on this repair. Found some heavy duty mono-filament in the studio, tied the ends to some 1/2" square dowel rod sections, and taped the handles for comfort with some gaffers. I believe this is r . . .

My Problem

Battery could no longer hold a charge for longer than an hour or so.

My Fix

Mine was easy as I've already replaced the trackpad a year ago and the battery was already removed to access the trackpad during that repair. The adhesive is long gone now so exchanging was easy as pie. Battery seems to work well . . .

My Problem

Dead Battery

My Fix

I made a careless mistake and I trashed my main board when my screwdriver slipped off a tight screw and broke off a SMT capacitor. The battery without any issues and exceeded the original factory capacity,

My Advice

Don't be careless - avoidable mistakes that can be costly. Ifixit was awesome, I . . .

My Problem

original battery in bad condition

My Fix

It worked. I was being ultra-slow and careful. If you're good, this could be done in 45 minutes. With help, maybe 25 minutes.

My Advice

I did not do the scary "take your whole laptop apart" method shown on ifixit. Instead used the youtube "cut the battery glue with string" . . .

My Problem

Had over 1000 cycles and needed replacement

My Fix

Very smoothly. Did not use the Adhesive Remover for removal but did use for glue clean up. Lighter fluid worked better to dissolve and clean up the remaining glue residue.

My Advice

Use You Tube to see the string method for battery removal. Take your time. Get a fr . . .

My Problem

Battery was getting tired.

My Fix

Was very straight forward. Everything works fine. I am an experienced tech though and am familiar with working with small connectors

My Advice

Don't force anything or you will have an expensive paperweight in you hands.

My Problem

My battery was running very low.

My Fix

The repair was easier than expected, because I didn't need to remove the system board.

My Advice

Instead, I used a thin metal wire with the ends wrapped around small dowel "handles" to go under the battery and "saw" out the tape & adhesive underneath. It was much quicker and no . . .

My Problem

Dying battery

My Fix

Like everyone else I left the main board in place and ripped the battery out like a wild animal.

My Advice

A razor blade scraper in conjunction with the supplied cherry almond flavored acetone worked great on the residual glue.

Also, a heads up as I didn't notice that a pair of the bottom case sc . . .

My Problem

Battery had ceased to power.

My Fix

Fine.

My Advice

The repair was easy. I didn't take out the logic board and speakers. Be careful with the syringe, it will squirt more than you expect. Also, there is a metal piece underneath the center batteries that (I assume) isolates the trackpad from the batteries. It came out w . . .

My Problem

Original battery was not holding a charge

My Fix

Perfect

My Advice

Apple's design on this is atrocious and I imagine Steve Jobs is rolling over in his grave. It is entirely unnecessary to remove the entire Logic Board. While this could be seen as precautionary, I see it as a bigger liability that something else will g . . .
