MacBook Air 13" Mid 2011 Battery Replacement

10 - 20 minutes


My Problem

4-year old battery no longer holding a charge for more than 1-1.5 hour.

My Fix

Overall very easy. The guide is very helpful and high quality tools ordered from iFixit helped tremendously.

My Advice

The only tough part was reconnecting the battery terminal once the new battery is in place. The cables were a bit rigid, so it was tough to line it up perfectly. Helped to lift the battery out slightly, then connect the cable and place the battery in the slot where it belonged.
