MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Early 2011 Battery Replacement

5 minutes

Very easy

My Problem

Battery worn out, and OS said to "service soon".

My Fix

Ordered replacement from iFixit and installed it with my own tools. A couple screwdrivers, a spudger, and a few minutes time, and I have a new battery! I did have an odd instance of the computer suddenly sleeping (very shortly after typing and clicking), but I reset the SMC, and it's been working fine since then. OS now says Battery "Condition: Normal." So far, so good!

My Advice

If you have trouble with the computer randomly sleeping, etc, you might try resetting the SMC: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295
