Macbook Retina Battery Replacement

This time we had a different repair for a change. We haven’t had a Macbook Retina Battery Replacement for a while, especially the Retina model. It was nice to have a different repair for a change.

These models are solid Macbooks and one of the most robust models out there, the dedicated graphic card gives a serious punch. Even 4 years later they still step up and can handle pretty much any task thrown at them.

This Macbook Pro Retina came to us with an exclamation mark on the battery, stating that the battery needs a replacement. The moment you disconnect the charger, Macbook will switch off.

When we took it apart we could see the battery on one side was expanding heavily. This is a fire hazard and would need replacement as soon as possible.

The customer was in our workshop while we took it apart and could see how it looks like inside. And as we have expected he also wanted it away from his Macbook as soon as possible.

Repair Process

We start taking the battery out, which is quite tricky as it comes with very strong glue holding it to the palmrest. And most of the time it requires delicate handling. Last we want is battery releasing toxic gas in our face.
