Battery finally arrived from our sponsor ( I did not pay for expedited shipping)!
Kit included Phillips and trilobe screwdrivers!
Pulled the old battery. Kinda dusty, no signs of swelling, laid flat on both sides.

Placed new battery, screwed back together (forgot my canned air to dust it).

Viola! it's on. Plugged in, not charging!

Unplugged and plugged, no go...

Then I took a good look at the power adapter and found a tiny opening at the cord root...

My (truly awesome) wife said she saw those adapters at BestBuy. Went to best buy dot com and found it, ordered for pickup. Got there and it was ready for me.

Now home, new battery is charging away. Will run calibrations soon!

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

Risen from the Dead MacBook LEADER!

must suffer with him.

OWC also sells those adapters, fwiw. They are usually pretty competitive if not the best price for an OEM. I wouldn't use anything but OEM on those mag safe machines.
