Adhesive on new Ifixit battery doesn’t stick. Old stock?

Has anybody else had this issue? Replaced the stock battery following ifixit video and all went perfectly except I now notice the battery didn’t stick to the chassis. So now it flops around inside when I carry the laptop. Wondering if this battery is old stock, or adhesive is from a bad lot.

Same for me. The chassis was perfectly cleaned and dried. Battery is quite new. According to the specs it is two months old. After few days it’s just all over the chassis.


Exactly same problem here. I’ve cleaned it quite well using the included adhesive remover before putting in the new battery. I think that the reason why it happens is because there is a tension created by the plastic frame of the battery, pushing against the macbook’s frame. So the battery doesn’t lay evenly and adhesive can’t do its job. I think that the adhesive layer should be much thicker to compensate it.

Not sure what to do. I am afraid doing any DIY because of the high temperatures and potential expansion of the battery.


Contact the seller of the battery to see if you can get a replacement.

I often find many of the adhesive removers leave a film which messes you up. You need to clean it off with a clean solvent. Otherwise use a few strips of 8mm Tesa 61395 Tape


I’ve used little round, sticky silicone pads (10x1mm). Placed them on the edges and in center of the batteries. Stacked them on top of the other to give just the right support. They are resistant to high temperatures so no worries.

Since February no problems, no wobbling around.


I just realized something, When I removed the plastic transparent cover of the side with adhesive, it came out with blue stripes glued to that plastic cover. Were these blue stripes supposed to stay on the battery?!

Open it up and feel the adhesive. The stock would have to be pretty old for the adhesive to not stick.

Also make sure the chassis is completely cleaned of dust and old adhesive from the previous battery. Dirty chassis will make new adhesive not sticky.

Worst case you can buy some double sided adhesive, I’d recommend red tape for it, and re-adhere battery to the chassis if the above doesn’t help.

Most of the time I find loose batteries are due to old adhesive and/or the cleaner left a film so the adhesive can't stick cleanly (using crappy rubbing or isopropyl alcohol) Find some reagent grade isopropyl alcohol (85% or better). You'll also need to reactivate the adhesive pads (used some acetone) or put down fresh adhesive after fully cleaning off the old, I would use 8mm Tesa 61395 Tape
