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 on the case screws and the torx t5 screws only on the battery screws to avoid stripping them.

My Problem

Old battery in my macbook air (mid 2011) was only lasting an hour or so before needing to be plugged in.

My Fix

Following the ifixit directions made the repair go quite quickly and painlessly.

My Advice

Arrange the little screws in the exact same way that they came out, by step. That way when going back through you have all the screws lined up according to the step that you are on.

My Problem

the battery on my Mac book air quit working.

My Fix

The repair went great no problems.

My Advice

order from ifixit they deliver what you order on time.

My Problem

Battery died in a mid-2011 MacBook Air 11"

My Fix

The repair was easier than expected. I bought the (inexpensive) tools recommended by iFixit. All Good.

Alas, there is another problem w the laptop not having to do with the integrity of the new battery itself. Battery won't charge. It will boot with the AC power. I repeatedly reset both PRAM and SMC. Nothing. I'm taking it to a local reliable Mac repair shop for diagnosis.

Again: the iFixit stuff worked fine. My problem though was more than just replacing the old battery.

My Advice

Bottom line: I am happy with iFixit, the instructions, and the gear I purchased from iFixit.

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 minutes.

My Advice

Order the Jackalope screwdriver. It only exists to frustrate Apple customers.

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. It is the exact same battery, but the cable is moved over about 3". ifixit swapped it out very quickly for me.

I highly recommend a screw storage / tracking system during the repair. These suckers are tiny, and there are 4 or 5 different screw types.

My Problem

I have had the MacBook sense 2011 and recently have dealt with power issues. Battery status indicated that a replacement was needed.

My Fix

I downloaded and printed the Very easy to read and follow instructions that IFixit provided, along with the replacement battery, which was easy to locate and order from IFixit, and I also bought a complete tool set with all the needed tools for the job. I was able to easily follow the instructions, remove the old battery and replace it with the new battery. The entire process took less then 30 minutes to complete.

My Advice

Use IFixit! By searching, following their instructions, and fully knowing what I needed to do, I was able to complete the repair. I also saved an incredible amount of money by using IFixit over going to a "professional" repair store. Thank you IFixit!

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 easier than you think!

My Problem

I've bought ifixit battery + a couple of screwdrivers. Spent about 40 minutes to replace the battery by myself.

My Fix

Great. I consider it to be very easy.

My Advice

Prepare 3-4 different places to store the bolts.

My Problem

The battery was dead!

My Fix

The battery arrived ahead of schedule and the repair went very smoothly.

Thank you very much.
