My Problem

The battery in my 2007 Apple computer had lost a lot of its ability to provide much battery time so my son gave me the URL to get an Apple battery from iFixit. The battery arrived on time and an authorized Apple repair favility installed it for only $15,

My Fix

It went well

My Advice

I'm amazed that Apple refuses to service their product that is older than 2009.

My Problem

After about five years as my main system, my Macbook Pro was grinding and beachballing and taking hours to do five minute tasks. I'd also lost use of the disk drive. The shops all wrote it off as "cheaper to buy a new one", but I was pretty sure they were wrong.

My Fix

It was honestly pretty uneventful! The instructions were thorough, the kits were complete. It took about half an hour. The longest part was waiting for my files to transfer from my external drive.

My Advice

Worth it - do it!

battery was swollen

My Problem

My Macbook was constantly nagging at me to 'service battery', and even gave me a wizard to booking an appointment at an Apple Store to get it fixed. 2 hours later, I learned my computer was 'vintage' (2009), so I bought the battery from iFixit.

My Fix

It was shockingly easier than I had originally expected. I decided to turn up the recommended screwdrivers because I have quite a collection. That being said, I did not have a tri-wing. However, I was able to get another specialty screwdriver to work.

My Advice

This is an easy repair, however, its important to reset the SMC afterwards or your computer may not recognize the new battery and continue to nag you about its high cycle count.

My Problem

I've used my laptop for over four years, using it for things like work, school, and entertainment. Being busy and needing this technology, I saw that she was dying more quickly than I imagined. She was stuck at 63% battery health with over 1,100 cycles due to restless nights and emotional breakdowns. She's been there with me from day one. I couldn't bear (afford) to lose her at a time like this.

My Fix

Easy. Peasy. A newborn once again (it changed from 4.3 years to 2.2 years of age, which I don't think matters). My boyfriend had little tools and did it himself in just under 10 minutes. He was my hero. He held my hand while she raised up from the grave.

My Advice

Turn off your laptop whenever possible. These babies don't last forever, and neither do we.

My Problem

Broken digitizer on my iPad Mini.

My Fix

I was surprised at my level of patience. I didn't think I would be able to get through the repair in one sitting, or without getting angry at myself but I completed the whole project from start to finish in one sitting.

My Advice

Be careful of the foam tape around the LCD screen. I broke it just before placing the new digitizer and now I have a random piece of foam between the digitizer and the LCD. Most of the time it is hidden in a dark wallpaper background, but when I can see it I get a little angry at myself.

My Problem

Hi, guys! I ordered a new battery on Friday night and was told it would arrive priority mail on Thursday. Fine.

But actually it secretly shipped on Friday/Saturday and I had it Monday morning at 10:30am. And then you guys emailed me the shipment trackng info at 7pm Monday (4pm Pacific).

My Fix

Battery swap totally uneventful. Should have used the opportunity to order some unrelated tools, but oh well.

My Advice

Send shipment notices earlier, like ideally well before I receive the item, not after.

Also, don't try so hard to follow Apple's underpromise/overdeliver philosophy -- a little more realism would do!

My Problem

My old battery only held a charge for 25 minutes.

My Fix

Just fine with Youtube tutorial videos.

My Advice

Just run software to measure the health of your old battery, and any new one you buy.

My Problem

My daughter's aging but highly beloved MacBook Pro had been serving her flawlessly since 2010. Then suddenly when she tried to charge the battery, the battery somehow shorted, and the charger died in a sparkling fireworks.

My Fix

We ordered a replacement battery from you on July 24th, and (to our astonishment) you, and FedEx, and Norwegian Bring parcel service, managed to get it from U.S. through half the world and national customs to be delivered at our front door in the morning of July 28th, just in time for my daughter's birthday!

My Advice

We purchased a new charger here locally. Then, we just followed your instructions to the letter, and the battery fix was carried out in a few minutes. The MacBook was saved, and so was the birthday!

Thank you for excellent service!

My Problem

My battery has been on "replace soon" for over a year and I figured it was time to replace. I was at the point where the computer was lasting twenty minutes at 100% - move it or lose it time!

My Fix

I watched the repair video once and was just fine. Very straight-forward.

My Advice

I definitely recommend the spudger - really good call on that one - otherwise I probably would have used a pen and broken something. Also, once I opened the comptuer, it was obviously dusty as all !&&* after 4 years of never being opened - luckily I had a technician on hand who could show me how to clean it without screwing anything up, but I think a guide on how to clean the inside once you pop it open would be helpful. There was all kinds of stuff in there!
