Rating: 5/5 Excellent battery replacement and video instructions July 26, 2018 This battery replacement is listed as "difficult" but OWC makes it as easy as possible with including all the tools, safety gear and battery. It took me about 30 minutes and I was taking my time. This is an EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED kit.

As usual, the video production showing clear, step-by-step instructions is easy to pause, complete the step and continue. It is paced perfectly.

I will share a story of what a Mac battery for this laptop will cost. I was first told that the whole back part would have to be replaced and was quoted $350-500!!! The local authorized Apple shop would not touch it because o the adhesive and had to adhere to Apple's replace the top rule.

This battery replacement was my only viable choice, or replace the computer for a cheaper macbook.

Concerning the adhesive... my battery barely needed any solvent to remove it. Use as little as possible.

Thanks OWC. I appreciate the thoughtful and well-designed (and supported) upgrades that nobody else is making. You guys rock!
