    • Two 7.3 mm screws

    • Six 2.6 mm screws

    • Charge it to 100%, and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours.

    • 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%.

结论

Compare your new replacement part to the original part—you may need to transfer remaining components or remove adhesive backings from the new part before installing.

To reassemble your device, follow the above steps in reverse order.

Once you've completed your repair, your laptop may not power back on until connected to power.

Take your e-waste to an R2 or e-Stewards certified recycler.

You’ve gotta be kidding me…

dotmiracle - 回复

Hard to believe, but true.. this is an improvement from a couple generations ago, when you had to disassemble the entire computer or futz about with isopropyl alcohol and credit cards (or dental floss) to remove swollen but still glued in batteries. If this has you feeling overwhelmed, go look at the 74-step guide for the 2015 15” MacBook Pro Battery Replacement.

GeneralKire - 回复

I concur with that. Made the fix for a Macbook Pro 13" 2014 some times ago and it looks really more difficult and stressing, especially with potentially destructive steps. I felt a bit lucky that it worked fine after that and since then...

Pierre Lagarde -

Ok I have the battery out but where do you buy replacement adhesive strips? Everywhere I look they say they are for iphones or generic lcd repair. I had to take the battery out for other reasons and want to put the same battery back in.

Stephen Szyszkiewicz - 回复

Stephen, the linked adhesive is a generic solution & should work just fine. Apple-specific adhesives are sometimes hard to source. You could also cut and adapt stretch-release adhesive strips to fit. Best of luck on your repair!
