My Problem

The battery of my wife's MacBook Air was dead. Causing the Mac to mal function and be unable to unplug it for more than a few minutes.

My Fix

The repair took only a few minutes and was so much simpler than i ever imagined (for a non-removable battery). My wife now enjoys an almost brand new Mac with a real lifespan.

Thanks iFixit!

My Advice

Thanks to the guide on iFixit and the availibity of the parts it was a child's game to make the repair.

My Problem

Battery cycle count was high and due to that a full charge would last only 45 mins

My Fix

the battery and the repair kit was easy to use. Took only about 8 mins to replace.

My Advice

definitely use these guys to repair your apple items since instructions are always easy to follow.

My Problem

Even though I've repaired a number of older Mac laptops I hadn't opened up an Air and was planning to get a professional to replace the obviously dead battery. The pros wanted me to drop it in for a day so they could check the problem, then if it was battery they would order the part... the whole process was going to take two visits and two weeks!

I hung up the phone and ordered from Ifixit. New battery arrived within days (which considering I'm in Australia is awesome)

My Fix

I didn't time the repair but it was certainly in line with other claims. I reckon if you did a few of these you could probably do it in three minutes. I'm guessing it took me about 10.

My Advice

One of the easiest Mac repairs ever

My Problem

Tenía la batería de un MBA de mid 2011 al 60% de su capacidad total después de 4 años.

My Fix

Reparación rápida y muy fácil.

My Advice

El pedido desde España te puede salir caro porqué puede que tengas que pagar impuestos de aduanas.

My Problem

Charger would act sporadically. Sometimes charging and sometimes not, sometimes depending on position of the cable. Laptop would heat up above the "esc" key (approximately where the I/O board is). Battery life was non-existent.

My Fix

So I replaced the I/O and battery and before that the top case. Real easy. Use screwdriver, unplug, rinse and repeat. iFixit's website could coach a 10 year old through it.

My Advice

My Advice: Always use IFIXIT!* (Especially for batteries)

I've been dealing with computers for over 15 years and would rank iFixit as top 20 tech companies I have had a great experience dealing with. Up there with Amazon and Google. Would've spent thousands at the Apple store on many occasion, but instead I give my business to iFixit in exchange for their knowledge, support, and great parts.

*except screws everything else they are kings... have purchased 3 batteries from various places and iFixit had the best one.

My Problem

2011 battery had been through 1000 charging cycles and lasted only 2 to 3 hours .

My Fix

The right tools and correct battery made this replacement a piece of cake. Total time to repair - 10 minutes.

At the Apple Store the price is about the same but the repair can take about 5 days according to Apple.

My Advice

Use IFIXIT and just do it yourself.

My Problem

Battery had 680 cycles,very short endurance

My Fix

Very easy repair all good now .I was very happy with the Ifixit evperience

My Advice

repair was well worth the money

My Problem

My old Macbook Air was down to holding about 30-45 minutes of battery on a good day, shutting down as soon as it got anywhere below 30%.

My Fix

It was very easy to change the battery. The screws come out and go back in easily enough, and they're different enough for it not to be confusing. The battery just slides in place. All in all, it was all very quick and easy - probably took about 10-15 minutes total, as I was reading the guide as I was going along.

My Advice

The Mac now hold around 4 hours of battery - not as good as when I got it, but a trillion times better than before. Very much worth the investment!

My Problem

battery would not last and worse: it would die at random no matter what percentage the battery said.

My Fix

the repair was super easy as i followed the ifixit guide!

My Advice

the magnets on the screwdrivers helped a lot since the screws are tiny plus i used a small black cloth to place them on so i don't lose them

My Problem

The battery was worn out and the charge only lasted about 20 minutes.

My Fix

The repair went surprising well and quick, under 10 minutes, thanks to the information on your IFIXIT website.

My Advice

My additional suggestion is to make sure you maintain the proper placement of those Tiny screws and keep from dropping them.
