MacBook Unibody Model A1342

MacBook Unibody Model A1342 Battery Replacement

5 - 10 minutes


My Problem

my battery wont charge and on the setting it says to change the battery. Now my setting says:

Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4489

Health Information:

Cycle Count: 3

Condition: Normal

Battery Installed: Yes

My Fix

Purchase the 26bit driver kit, it has everything i needed. THe battery came in a brown box- it was label new but it was all scratched up. The fedex came in super quick ie the next day but i had to pay $24 of customs. I am from canada. The battery will last 4hrs. According to coconut battery max design capacity is 5450mAh, after a week of use the max capacity is only 4489mAh. so it does seem to wear down alot faster??

My Advice

i paid $110 or sth for this battery, which seem to be cheaper than the one sold on the apple website but i am not sure if "NEW" from ifixit.com really means NEW? My old battery for my 2009 macbook last me almost 5yrs. I dont think this new battery will last me 5yrs.
