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.
Macbook Retina Battery Replacement 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. The last we want is a battery releasing toxic gas in our face.
We separated the battery from the palmrest of this Macbook and cleaned the area. The New Genuine Macbook Retina Replacement Battery was ready to go in.
We supply and fit only Genuine parts, sometimes the cost for them can be a bit more expensive compared to generic ones. But we want our customers to have a safe usage of their Macbooks.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on the reparability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Macbook Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Macbooks having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Macbooks we repair. Check some of our Macbook Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.
That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 2000$ or even 1000$ today by repairing our faulty Macbook is brilliant. That’s an extra half Macbook cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Macbook from polluting our one and only Planet.
