10 minutes

Easy

My Problem

The original 2010 Pro battery finally gave up the ghost. While the Mac help desk diagnosed a bad hard drive, replacing with a new one did not help.

After spending $100 on an online site (known to all) for an off-brand battery, which never charged properly, turns out the charger was malfunctioning. Purchased a replacement charger and THIS time I wanted an authentic Mac replacement battery.

My Fix

Like a dream. The new battery from iFixit arrived 3 days after order and with the working charger performed as designed.

I have to admit: This repair job was like falling off a log, once I had the properly working parts in place.

My Advice

Don't violate Occam's Razor; make sure you resolve the simplest issue first.

On the bright side, now I have two hard drives, one to serve as a backup device.

Oh yeah: Go to iFixit first. This is an outstanding company supporting the DIY community!!
