My Problem

Wife's Macbook Air 11" battery would last less than an hour. Of course, that was my fault. Finding the AC power when there is 1% left on the battery and she has 15 minutes invested into a web form that is about to evaporate. You get the picture. Much needed upgrade.

My Fix

The repair literally took 5 minut . . .

My Problem

Original battery on a 4 year old laptop, down to one hour of battery life... Yikes.

My Fix

Repair went extremely smoothly. Removed the lower case with a few screws, unscrewed the battery, put in a new one, put screws back, put lower case back on. Simple.

My Advice

Make sure that you use the pentalobe screw driver only . . .

My Problem

Macbook Air battery was not holding a charge.

My Fix

This was a 10 minute swap. The screw drivers recommended by ifixit are a must.

My Advice

Double check that you are ordering the correct battery. The first part of the model number matches multiple years for the Air. I didn't know this and ordered the wrong battery. . . .

My Problem

Battery life was only about 2, 2.5 hours.

My Fix

Amazingly easy! I was hesitant about opening up a Macbook Air -- I always heard how the battery was not "user repairable." With iFixit's tools and instruction guide, the entire battery replacement took only 10 minutes.

My Advice

Don't be worried -- it's much, much eas . . .
