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 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.

My Problem

My Problem

The system shows the battery is having a problem

My Fix

went well. Remember to drain your battery first just for better safety.

My Advice

you can follow the advice from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruG2Nh-r..., i.e. use a string to "cut out" the battery from the container.

It worked pretty well and so you do . . .

My Problem

It's more cost effective to renovate a working laptop than to buy another.

My Fix

Well.

My Advice

Yes. I think the guide would benefit from some close-ups of the connector sockets. I've worked with ZIF components, so I know what to look for. Some of the sockets on the board are a little difficult to operate and a c . . .

My Problem

Laptop was shutting off at 50% battery.

My Fix

It’s about what the guide says: 2 hours of unscrewing, de-gluing, and reconstruction, but in the end it was successful.

My Advice

Keep careful track of your screws. There are many different sizes and it helps to tape a sheet of paper to a working surface and label the s . . .

Service Battery Alert

My Fix

The guide advised to remove the speakers to avoid any damage to them from the glue removal solution. This requires removing the entire logic board which is a very long and difficult process. I decided instead to just tilt the laptop so the battery end was on the bottom, that way . . .

My Problem

The battery was bad and wouldn’t hold a charge

My Fix

Amazingly smooth experience given the difficulty level. Lot of things to remove, but the instructions were spot on.

My Advice

I used sheets of white paper to write the type and number of screw(s) removed and drew a circle to put the screw(s) in and keep track of . . .

My Problem

Battery expanded so much it bent the case.

My Fix

Followed Most if I-Fix-It steps, this is not my first time replacing a battery in a MacBook.

Wow it was so much easier using the extra stuff in the kit, The Adhesive Remover and plastic card, saved me a lot of struggling that the old string method caused. A . . .

My Problem

The battery needs service message was appearing

My Fix

I started the full board removal... but it quickly got very hard and hairy, so bailed and just removed the battery. I don't really care about my speakers though so was ok with putting them at risk of permanent damage. I saw the risk of removing and rein . . .

My Problem

After 5 years, you expect to change the batteries and the operating system even gave a warning that the batteries were wearing out.

My Fix

Ordered my battery from another firm initially, but used the iFixit tools and directions.

All went smoothly in the disassembly until the part where you remove the batt . . .

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 . . .
