    • Lift the battery out of the Air.

    • If you're installing a new battery, you should calibrate it after installation:

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

    • If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new battery, you may need to reset your MacBook's SMC.


To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

This doesn't make sense. The battery cost $110, plus shipping, which will come out to about $130, with next day shipping. Apple does it for $129, and will do it same day with an appointment. I know some people will do it for fun, but if you're trying to save money, I have to roll with Apple on this one.

I ordered a replacement battery for $75 (shipping included) and 3 days later the switch is done (thanks for this easy guide!). Now, my wife's MBA is free from power cord again! It is a no brainer!

Other guides mention from late 2010 onwards Apple use 5-star anti-tamper screws on the bottom lid. So such a bit is useful on those later models.

Any idea where to buy the two screws of the battery? One of mine is spread and unusable.
