Installation test

Although the author is eager to try it, but I heard that it is necessary to install a new computer for dismantling it, so it is better to leave it to a professional when I think about it.

The first is to remove the D side of the MacBook. There are long and short screws in this circle. When disassembling the machine, pay attention to distinguish and save it. 

 Open the D side of the notebook, the battery is exposed like this, take a deep breath, ah ~ the fragrance of old gray, I have disassembled it, you may as well clean the fan, air outlet, sound hole, motherboard and other places, A lot of dust will not only affect the heat dissipation, but also lead to short circuit of components in extreme cases, and there is a risk of burning the motherboard.

Before cleaning, don't forget to open the battery cable to cut off the power.

After picking up the battery cable, you can remove the screws of the battery fixing cover, and then put the new battery in. This step is still very easy, after all, it is not fixed with easy-pull glue, such as iPhone, remove the battery Tired of the old. Align the power supply interface and plug it back in.

Then replace the screws, paying attention to where the original screws are.

Lastly, plug in the battery cable. During the disassembly and assembly process, it is inevitable to encounter other parts of the motherboard, such as the display cable, the touch screen cable, the keyboard cable, etc. You can check whether the interfaces on the motherboard are plugged in tightly to avoid secondary rework.

Before screwing on the screws on the D side, you might as well turn on the power and test whether the touchpad, keyboard, and monitor function normally.

It looks like you're done, tighten the D-side, and that's it for a perfect battery replacement.

Endurance test

Let's take a look at the battery life of the computer with different built-in batteries.

Fully charge the computer, now start the test, adjust the brightness of the computer to 50%, open the AIQIYI or YouTube client on the computer, the resolution is ultra-clear, and the volume will continue to play the video at about 50%. After 2 and a half hours, the computer still had 37% of the power left, and finally at 3 hours and 57 minutes the computer was completely shut down, and the battery was exhausted. The KingSener A1496 brand new battery 7150mAh is 450mAh more than the original 6700mAh, and the battery life is longer. The KingSener battery with 3 cycles and 343 cycles has almost the same video playback time, even if the number of cycles reaches more than 300 times. , the cycle life level is also very good.

The whole process of replacing the battery is very simple, simply screwing, removing the back cover, disconnecting the interface, and removing the battery in one go, which is also very friendly to Xiaobai. In terms of price, the price of more than 30 US dollars is not known to be much better than the original 157 US dollars. Anyway, for this old laptop, the author himself will not pay so much "IQ tax".
