MacBook Air 13" Mid 2012 Battery Replacement

15 minutes


Mon problème

Mavericks told me I needed to replace my battery, and my battery life was down to 3-4 hours after 250 cycles or so.

Ma solution

Could not have been easier. Used my coworker's iFixit toolkit. Took me about 20 minutes and I was being super careful. Literally unscrew the case, unscrew the battery, release the connector, and replace.

Mon conseil

This is a good moment to do a little cleaning - I had some dust in there. Canned air worked but I bet a mini-vac with a soft brush would have been better. Wiped down the bottom case cover with some alcohol.

There are a few sizes of pentalobe so make sure you have the biggest one that fits before you apply torque!

Rule of thumb: the short screws are where the case is thinnest. Duh!
