If you remember my past posts, my MBP battery was badly needing a replacement. Read here for the past article.
Well, my battery replacement finally arrived today after a month of waiting. I ordered my MacBook Pro battery replacement from Aliexpress from a seller named Watchmen. Verified the correct model and make and proceeded to make the replacement.
See video below.
Before making the replacement, ensure OSX has shutdown and not in hibernate mode as you will lose all unsaved data and probably crash your OSX if you just replace it during hibernate mode.
After the quick replacement (about 15 mins), i startup the MBP and verified the exclamation mark is no longer there and battery conditions are good.
The first screenshot after the replacement.
I opened up my Battery Health app and the full details of my new battery are displayed as below.
Verified it has only 1 cycle count. And oh my! 103% Health???
Started to charge the battery as i am working on my video and it sort of drain away new battery pre charged level.
Overall, i am very happy that my MBP is slowly getting rejuvenated with little parts changes and upgrades.
