My old MacBook Pro's battery was swelling out of the case and was a bit outdated.

My Fix

Replaced the swollen battery and pushed the aluminum back to its intended shape.

Kicked the RAM up to 8gb

Replaced hard drive with 1TB Hybrid drive

The whole process was quick and painless. The guides offered on this site are absolutely perfect.

My Advice

Save money. Instead of Apple charging you $100+ for labor fees, choose iFixit. Couldn't be happier.

My Problem

Battery was old

My Fix

Great, product was exactly what i needed. My computer was being entirely slow until i replaced the battery, Now it's running at lightning speed!

My Advice

Great site! Thanks!

My Problem

The only way my MBP would run is it had to be hooked up to the charger.

After investgating I concluded that the battery reach the end of it useful life. Replaced the battery everything is back to normal.

My Fix

I searched the internet for a new battery and I felt most comfortable with the people at ifixit. I called to make sure I was ordering the right battery. I order the recommend battery, tools, and followed the step-by-step guide and everything went as smooth as silk.

My Advice

I recomen that you follow the step by step guide and everything will go ok.

My Problem

Battery in the Macbook Pro is down to 50 minutes of life after 3 years.

My Fix

My family expressed their consternation and my wife elucidated her lack of confidence as I flipped over her MacBook Pro. "What are you doing?" they asked in alarm as I opened my new toolkit from FixIt. "I'm changing the battery," I told them cooly. There was much concern about a ruined computer, statements about leaving this to the professionals, and other sentiments expressed. Nonetheless, in 10 minutes the Macbook Pro was powering up with a brand new battery, still at 60% out of the box. The family realized the confidence they should have had all along. The dad was impressed with much better build quality in a Mac than any other laptop.

My Advice

Watch the excellent FixIt videos.

My Problem

The four year old mac battery finally stopped holding more than about 15 minutes of charge.

My Fix

The physical repair process is pretty easy, you can use a small flathead for the wierd 3-way screws on the battery mount.

My Advice

Make sure to reset the SMC if you get the [X] battery not recognized error in OSX.

My Problem

Macbook would not run unless plugged in to the wall.

My Fix

Start to finish the repair took about 15 minutes. Turned a dust collector into an excellent first computer for my 9 year old son.

My Advice

The battery is held in place with trilobe screws. I overlooked this in my initial research. I was able to get them out and back in with a small flat head screwdriver from an eyeglasses repair kit.

My Problem

power level @<20%, and when switching from cellular to WiFi connection, phone shuts down

My Fix

was a breeze, took 10'

My Advice

be careful to slide out gold tabbed pressure connector after taking out two battery connector screws

My Problem

My original battery to my MacBook Pro was alas no good anymore. It just did not hold a charge anymore, which turned it into a 'Desktop'.

My Fix

Super Easy repair and having the correct equipment to do it surely helped out.

My Advice

Make sure you ground yourself as to not hurt the equipment, i.e. logic board.
