My Problem

I'd had my Mac since 2009 and never serviced the battery. It was finally starting to show and the battery life was getting worse and worse.

My Fix

I was nervous but the repair was super easy and the guide/videos made it really easy to follow. For someone who's never opened up any type of computer it was just as easy as they said it would be.

My Advice

Definitely doing this next time. I didn't want to go to the apple store because they wouldn't give me an estimate and they tend to charge just to get the estimate. No need to pay an expert to do this.

My Problem

My MacBook Pro was from early spring 2011... here it is 2015 and the battery was worn out. So much so, that I had to stay connected to the cord most of the time because the battery would only last a couple or three hours or so.

My Fix

I didn't want to pay the repair shops the exorbitant amounts they were asking for to replace the battery, but I was tired of the ball and chain that was my computer cord, so I bit the bullet and ordered two screwdrivers, the spudger and the battery. I don't think I really needed to order the tools... tools I had here at home might have worked (well... maybe needed the Tri-wing screwdriver). I followed the written directions step by step and it was EASY!! Thanks so much ifixit for for saving me time and money!!

My Advice

Check all the tools and save a little more money by only getting what you really need!!

My Problem

The battery expanded severely causing the trackpad to pop out the the frame

My Fix

Very simple install. Directions were fantastic. Took about 15 minutes

My Advice

Look up the directions and order the tools.

My Problem

Five year old MacBook Pro, battery only lasting 1 hour before giving up the ghost. Love the machine, nothing else wrong with it. Simple: replace the battery! But Apple says it's not a user-serviceable part. Yeah, right!

My Fix

Only problem was it turned out I didn't have the right screwdriver! Serves me right for being too lazy to shut down the machine and check, before ordering the battery. However, my local electronics store let me borrow a Y1 tri-wing, so I did the "surgery" in the middle of the store!! Absolutely no problems and I'm delighted to have a battery now that lasts nearly 3 hours. Thanks iFixit for the guides AND the battery -- I couldn't find them for sale in my country.

My Advice

Do it, do it, do it. This is easy-peasy.

My Problem

Hello guys,

At about a month and a half, my MacBook Pro mouse pad began to lift and crashed. I was very worried because I work in East Timor, a country with few resources and where it is difficult to find credible computer technicians.

Then I talked to a portuguese friend who works in IT. For my description, he suggested it might be the battery that was swell.

He advised me to replace the battery as soon as possible to avoid damaging the Mac . He also suggested your company to buy a new battery showing me how easy it was to replace it .

My Fix

The repair was very easy and successful .

The greatest difficulty was waiting for the battery, because in Timor there are no well defined addresses or mail delivery . People have to have a section in the post office and go through there to see if your order arrived . So when I made the purchase I gave my address in Portugal and then my mom sent me to East Timor. Only yesterday I received the battery. In 15 minutes was replaced and the computer is running !

My Advice

Do not be afraid to make replacement of your battery.

No need to spend too much money on a technical.

My Problem

Battery was not charging for very long. So ordered new battery from fixit.com

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. The new battery fit perfectly. The new battery now holds a longer charge than that of the previous.

My Advice

The only concern I have now is where to dispose of the previous battery? Is there a place to send for proper disposal?

My Problem

My early 2011 macbook pro battery swollen so I buy one here, and arrived to my house just two days after I ordered! it was great, even if I live in Mexico!

My Fix

It was extremely easy to replace the macbook pro battery, though replacing the iPhone 4s battery was a little difficult but it was on the backplate to blame, even though I replaced it in less than 20 minutes

My Advice

Always keep an eye on your mail, if there's a problem ifixit team will contact you there ;)

My Problem

After about five years of heavy use on my Mid-2010 MacBook Pro, the battery had become disfigured, warping my trackpad along with it. Also, my computer was acting very sluggish.

My Fix

After I received my iFixit delivery, I replaced my RAM and my battery using the 54 Bit Driver Kit and iFixit's easy guides. Everything went perfect. It only took a few minutes, and my MacBook was back up and running.

My Advice

iFixit has great products and great repair guides. If you think tinkering with your laptop is too difficult and only professional geeks can fix it, then you should rethink your philosophy because it's really easy with the right tools and the right guide, and you can find both here at iFixit.

My Problem

My trackpad stopped working & after some searching it sounded like the battery was going bad. After several tech calls & web searching, I found IFIXIT!! Thank goodness b/c the closest Mac store was over 3 hours away. And I didn't like the idea of mailing my computer off somewhere to have a simple battery taken out.

My Fix

The repair was easy peasy! I ordered the new battery on a Saturday and had it by Wednesday. Installing the battery couldn't be easier.

My Advice

IFIXIT, please keep doing what you are doing. THANK YOU for your products, your service, your how to videos, etc...! Thanks for making my battery replacement a painless process.
