My Problem

My MacBook Pro Retina didn't last more than 2hrs with the battery and it turned off with no warning at 25%, so I had to change it.

My Fix

The repair was quicker that i expected it to be. In about 1 hour, I changed everything and my Mac was running again.

My Advice

Buy the "brand new" not the used one, first because the "glue" in the used is not too strong as the original and i don't know if it's my mac or the battery it only last about 5hrs but it's better to have this that have less than 2hrs, and with this battery the mac turns off how it have to do, making sending me warning at 10% and then turn off smoothly.

My Problem

My MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display battery had undergone 710 cycles and OS stated that it was time to replace.

My Fix

Went pretty well, a lot of parts need to be removed. Found it incredible that there were so many types of screws. Must have a telecom toolkit for this one.

My Advice

It's very important to keep organized during this replacement for ease of reassembly as there may be different size/length screws in the same step.

Someone else had mentioned using isopropyl alcohol to remove the adhesive from the batteries which is truly a great idea.

In my specific case, isopropyl alcohol was not something I had on hand. As a substitute, I used my wife's nail polish remover since acetone evaporates fairly well (yay high school science class FTW) and sure enough, they came loose no problem. This method is NOT guaranteed, but to the careful DIYer can work great in a pinch.

My Problem

The battery life was down to less than two hours.

My Fix

It was a success. There were some difficult moments and I was very methodical, which is why it took two hours and not just one.

My Advice

Be prepared to spend some quality time removing the original adhesive that's sticking the stock battery to the unibody case. Time and heat had made it a mighty bond that was VERY hard to remove. And you have to be careful because you don't want to puncture the Li-ion battery, as that could blow up in your face. Literally. Even after I managed to pry the old battery off in one piece, there were patches of old adhesive that I had to scrape off and clean off with rubbing alcohol.

The tool of choice was not a spudger but a plastic scraper tool shaped kind of like a credit card but about three times thicker. Gently and firmly shoving and prying with that eventually separated the battery from the case.

My Problem

My battery was not good anymore. I took it to a repair shop and they wanted to change the battery and keyboard for a very large sum of money, so I went iFixit (thanks!) bought the battery, follow the instructions and voilá! Problem fixed. I live in México, so the delivery time was very fast and a great price.

My Fix

Very well, thanks to the pictures posted in iFixit it was quite easy to do it. The only problem was to remove the battery, the glue is strong and it was the only part that went a little slow.

My Advice

I used a cardboard and sticked each screw and part in a raw drawing I made on it, so in order of not losing any part and knowing how to get it back.

My Problem

Battery would only hold about a 2 hour charge, and would shut down at between 25-30% charge left without warning.

My Fix

Repair went well.. a it more detail about where to place the batteries (ie tight together etc would be good.

My Advice

Include the spooge in the box with the battery. maybe some advice on how to clean the old material off of the case before putting the new batteries in would be nice.
