My Problem

MacBook Air battery only lasting 1-2 hours

My Fix

Changing the battery was super easy. I had gone to the Apple store twice and both times they wanted to keep it for at least 48 hours. I run a business and cannot be without it for that long. I wanted an OEM battery and found it on iFixit. Saved the 'repair' fee Apple was going to charge and had it done in about 15 minutes!

My Advice

Skip the Apple store to save you A LOT of time and some money! Just backup your computer first, print the instructions available right on this site and anyone can do this quick battery exchange.

My Problem

Bought a used MBA that had short battery life

My Fix

With the proper tools, it went very easy. Nice that they are magnetized enough to hold the screw well to insert them. After getting the back off, I knew I'd spend more time cleaning the dust bunnies out than actually replacing the battery. True. Very easy to do.

My Advice

Get the right tools.

My Problem

Battery replacement in my Mac book air 2011. The battery was not holding a charge anymore. The fan on the MacBook air was running at high-speed to keep the notebook cool.

My Fix

Repair went very well. I received the battery when I got home from work it took me about 20 minutes to complete the battery change I use my iFixit toolset which work just perfect .

My Advice

The online manual was Word for Word perfect .

My Problem

The battery wasn't lasting more than 30 minutes after ~300 cycles (almost 3 years of use).

My Fix

It took me ~15 min to replace the battery. The biggest problem was not buying the pentalobe screwdriver from iFixit, it took me 3 times to find a decent provider here in Brazil (the first sent an incorrect model and the second sent a poor quality screwdriver that dusted unscrewing the first screw)

My Advice

I regret no buying the screwdrivers along with the battery from iFixit. Also, If you are from Brazil, make sure you buy the correct part before submitting the transaction (the taxes cost more than the battery itself. 109 USD from battery and 120 USD on taxes).

My Problem

Well, the first problem was that my battery had been screaming for a replacement for months. Unplugged, I could get an hour out of it. So I ordered a battery and tools from iFixIt. But when it rains, it pours, so as I waited for my delivery, my hard drive crashed. I bought a new hard drive from elsewhere. Thankfully, the hard drive repair used the same tools as the battery and there was a Guide ready to go.

My Fix

The repair went great! I was really proud of myself by the end. It took maybe 30 minutes in total. The slowest part was unscrewing the teeny tiny laptop screws. But after that was done and the screws were safely secured, the rest was really easy and straight forward.

My Advice

This may not have been the most complicated of technical feats, but it's nice to know that things like fixing a computer aren't as difficult as they seem.

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.
