Can you replace the battery on my MacBook?

Determining the price of a MacBook battery replacement does start with your MacBooks model year. Contrary to what you may have read on most tech websites, all MacBook batteries are replaceable. Whether or not you can do it yourself depends on the year of your MacBook. Most MacBooks Pros built before the middle of 2012 were fairly easy to replace. MacBook Pros built prior to the middle of 2012 were secured with a few screws. MacBook Pros built after 2012 were secured with industrial grade aerospace adhesive that requires heat, solvents and lots of courage to remove.

  • MacBook Pro Late 2012 and newer, batteries start at $189
  • MacBook Pro Mid 2012 and older, batteries average around $119

Regardless of the year, most MacBook Air batteries are much simpler to replace, and as a result are much more repair friendly. No industrial adhesive, only five torx screws hold in most MacBook Air batteries.

  • MacBook Air 13 2010 through 2017, batteries start around $119.

How much will it cost to fix my MacBook?

There is no simple answer to how much it will exactly cost to repair an Apple MacBook. There are many generations and variations of the MacBook, creating a range of repairs from as inexpensive as $29 to as expensive as $849. In order to try and make repairing your MacBook less intimating, we have made a specific repair page for each MacBook repair that we offer, so whether you have a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or the MacBook you should be able to find the repair price on the website. Each repair center is different, so we will discuss the repairs that we will perform at Gophermods for your mac.

About Us

Gophermods started in Casey’s dorm room at the U of M Pioneer Hall in 2009. We started off as a custom video game accessory supplier, and we slowly turned into a repair company as we had more requests for repairs than accessories. Six months later after outgrowing the basement bedroom in the Como neighborhood, Gophermods opened up a commercial shop in the University Tech Center in Dinkytown. We hired our first employees whom were all U of M students and we all ran back and forth from Dinkytown to class, and kept that up until graduating in 2011.

We are a Minnesota company with a passion for technology. We enjoy learning and being re-inventors in our field. We were your friends in science class and the person next to you in line to get the latest gadget.

We are dedicated to finding solutions to everyday technology problems. Our drive is to provide customers with cost effective results

Our service is “reasonable”, “fast”, and “friendly”.

…That’s Minnesota Nice for saying, we’re pretty good.

We’re ready for your questions.

We’ve been doing this a while, here are the most common questions

Yes. We’ve had tens of thousands of broken iPhones, iPads, iPods and computers brought into Gophermods since 2009. I would guess, 98% of the devices brought into our stores are repaired.

On average, most copmuters repairs are finished within one to two hours of drop-off at any one of our stores. Many computers parts are not in-stock and are special order.

Pretty simple, we break it we bought it. If our parts fail within one year, bring it back, and we’ll fix it again under warranty. We’ve been doing this almost ten years, and have hundreds of positive feedback and reviews. You’d think if we sucked, someone would have had said something by now right?

In the rare event we cannot fix your device, there may be a $19 to $29 diagnostic fee.
