My Problem

Battery life was getting short on the MacBook Air.

My Fix

I assigned my 12-year old so to do it. He did it in about 5 minutes.

My Advice

The pentalobe screws were used on the case and on the inside to hold battery. Screws are tiny, don't force them.

My Problem

battery running down on Air Pro

My Fix

no problem

My Advice

doesn't hesitate to fix electronics yourself

My Problem

My wife is a full time student, and when her battery started going from 80% to 20% in the middle of lecture, I decided not to mess around and replace it.

My Fix

Awesome. I have the iFixit Pro Tech Tool Kit, and no worries about having the right tools for the job. I watched the video and the whole job took 20 min.

My Advice

The videos are really well done.

My Problem

Macbook Air Battery changeout. OS is telling me I need to replace the battery soon.

My Fix

Easy-peasy. Japanesey.

Need the pentalobe screw driver to get the outside screws. Need the Torx screw driver to get the inside screws. Pop out the battery, pop in the new one. More screwing and Bob is your uncle.

My Advice

The cost of the iFixit Battery Replacement: $109.

Cost of pentalobe and Torx Screw drivers: $20.

Cost of having Apple do it: $129.

So the net gain is that I now have 2 screwdrivers to be able to pull this off again in 3-years.

There's some fuel savings from not having to drive to the Apple Store.

Time-savings is a wash.

Overall, I'm not afraid to open up my Macbook Air anymore.

My Problem

The batteries were old and needed replacing.

My Fix

Things went without a hitch, though the P5 screwdriver did end up stripping.

My Advice

Be careful not to accidentally use the P5 in a T5 screw.

My Problem

I had a Drs MacBook Air that was dying from 100% after about an hour. She only had the ability to charge in the morning and at a lunch time break. So this was really making the device almost unusable for her practice.

My Fix

The process of replacing the battery could not be easier. I think the whole process took me less than 5 minutes total.

My Advice

I purchased the Pro Tech Toolkit about a 1.5 years ago. Still today I consider this one of the best investments I have made. It has come in handy with almost every computer repair I have done.

My Problem

My I/O board sustained water damage while living in humid environments for the past 4 years, and it had signs of corrosion. The most annoying problem was the intermittent charging. The battery was not in the worst shape (~1200 charge cycles), but since I was opening up the case, I decided to replace it at the same time.

My Fix

The guide was spot on. No issues at all.

My Advice

If you have a compressed air canister, it is a good time to clean the dust that accumulates over the years. Take extra care when dealing with the small connections.

My Problem

Old battery wasn't holding charge.

My Fix

super simple. watched a video on the ifixit site and changed the battery myself in 5 min. all good.

My Advice

someone pls convince apple to stop allowing us to update software on old computers...

My Problem

Battery was getting old and weak

My Fix

15 minute repair, no joke. Buy the tools, the Mac screws are so small I was afraid of stripping them.

My Advice

The videos are fantastic

My Problem

My Air had a dead battery and problems with the I/O unit. After five years I thought I should buy another one. A shame, because the Mac worked perfectly.

My Fix

The new battery and I/O unit arrived in only three days from USA to Spain, and I followed the instructions to repair. No problems. The Mac lives again and I think I will use it five years more.

My Advice

I had lot of work to find out what model is my Air. A guide or page in FixIt to know the models we have would be useful.
