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.

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 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.

As one might expect from a 6-year-old laptop battery, it was toast. Waaaaay overdue for a replacement.

My Fix

This repair kit and guide is absolutely spot-on. Never did I reach a step and wonder, now what?! The only mistake I made was thinking I'd be able to breeze through this more quickly than the estimat . . .

My Problem

The battery health on my laptop was pretty bad. It didn't hold a charge sufficiently before. It would shut down my computer at 70% battery or 50%. I decided it's unacceptable for me to deal with something like that, and I wanted to make my computer last longer while also avoiding Apple's pricey batt . . .

My Problem

After 1,000 charge cycles on my 2012 Retina Macbook Pro, my battery had hit the skids. Furthermore, I'd cracked the trackpad and purchased a replacement. After realizing I'd need to remove the battery to do that repair, I just waited until the battery was ready to go...

My Fix

It's brutal. None of is iFixit . . .

My Problem

Battery was below 75% factory capacity, and I wanted to send the laptop to Mom, out of state. It was time to replace and ought to keep her from calling me in a year with battery issues.

My Fix

Repair went very well... But I didn't use any adhesive remover, nor did I remove most of the innards as your guides . . .

My Problem

I was getting a 'Check Battery / Service Battery' notification.

My Fix

Far from perfect, but everything is working fine touch-wood.

My Advice

Instructions could include visual examples of screw types, as there are a few that differ in millimeters, which is hard to tell for a novice. I was left with 3 screws in hand th . . .

My Problem

My computer was loosing its ability to stay powered on and the power level checker would give incorrect reading.

My Fix

The repair was straight forward. There are several videos on how to replace but many have you removing all the components, not what I did.

I used a 40lb fishing to cut the adhesive from th . . .

My Problem

Battery was dead after five years of professional use. It seems like this wasn't super-invasive surgery, so I thought I'd go ahead and do it myself rather than pay the the over three-hundred-dollar best estimate I'd found at any of the local Mac repair shops.

My Fix

Everything went exactly as advertised... . . .

My Problem

My stock MacBook Pro Battery was losing its charge capacity - even after recalibrating the battery, it would constantly go to sleep after 35 percent charge remained. This was the best option for a DIY'er.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. I decided not to take apart the entire MacBook and leave the speake . . .
