MacBook Air battery replacement

1 comment
After four years of daily use our MacBook Air informed us that it needed a battery replacement. That's kind of nice to know, in particular as it still feels speedy and otherwise just works.

A new battery isn't that expensive and according to iFixit it appeared to be quite easy to replace it. I needn't to worry, it was actually super simple, given appropriate tools:

  • Remove 10 screws from bottom case
  • Open case
  • Disconnect battery
  • Remove 5 screws from battery
  • Swap battery
  • Reassemble everything back together
  • Job done.
Although I cannot guarantee that it works for you as well, I would do it again.

Here are a few pictures of the surgery:
