Introduzione

Use this guide to replace a worn-out battery.

Note: If there is a thin plastic film on your replacement battery, do not attempt to remove it. It is glued on and protects the battery pack while it is inside the MacBook.

    • Use a P5 Pentalobe driver to remove ten screws securing the lower case, of the following lengths:

      • Two 9 mm screws

      • Eight 2.6 mm screws

    • When installing the new battery, if there is a thin plastic film on your replacement battery, do not attempt to remove it. It is glued on and protects the battery pack while it is inside the MacBook.

    • If you're installing a new battery, you should calibrate it after installation:

      • Charge it to 100%, and then keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Then, unplug and use it normally to drain the battery. When you see the low battery warning, save your work, and keep your laptop on until it goes to sleep due to low battery. Wait at least 5 hours, then charge your laptop uninterrupted to 100%.

      • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook's SMC.

Done! Now my Macbook Air has a new lease on life! I travel a lot and need good battery life on my Macbook so that I can work on flights, work throughout the day in meetings, do presentations etc.,

I ordered the battery and a pentelobe screwdriver from iFixit - they arrived quickly and as as promised in South Africa. The replacement took just a few minutes. The guide was very helpful and easy to follow. Now I have 6 hours of battery life again (or maybe a few minutes less ;-)

Thanks guys. I am very happy!

@digitaldion, Could you share what is time on a single charge now, after almost a year of active(?) use?

I had spilled Iced Tea all over my new laptop. Soaked it in rice, but it only would work when it was plugged in. I read replacing the battery would fix it. Ordered the battery...came in 2 days, and I used the repair guide. Worked with 100% success and now my laptop runs like it's brand new.

Did it! In less then 4 minutes. One extra tip: when you remove the screws, put them backwards on the table in the same pattern as you took them out. It saves time and avoids frustration :-) Thanks iFixit!

Done! That was actually quite easy; I can't believe how easy it was to do. When I ordered the battery I also ordered the iFixit 54 Bit Driver Kit and I have to say that I will likely never have to buy any screwdrivers again for any computer related fix-ups I have to do. Thanks!
