I plan to be there and will try to remember my tool kit. I need to locate my trilobe driver which is separate from the kii. You need to have done your backups.
(I am assuming you mean the battery in the MacBook Pro, not your battery - that is out of my competence. My battery runs down faster these days too.)This message has been edited. Last edited by: James R. Cutler,
Thanks, James. I am usually out of town so much that this is the first meeting I think I will be able to attend in a long time. I did look at the video. It doesn't look too difficult except for those teensy screws. At the end of that video it showed how to reset the Power Manager; I did that, and will see if that may have improved the si6tuation. If not, I will order that new battery asap.

85% after 5 years? That's pretty good. I'm not sure I would be in a hurry to replace that.

Not sure this is relevant, but re the charger: We have 2 Consumer Cellular flip phones that came with USB charge cords, AND a separate electric plug to connect USB to a wall outlet. Some months back one of the phones wouldn't charge even after hours connected. Customer Service said I could purchase a new charge cord rather than getting a new phone. After ordering, I noticed the USB connection and tried charging on a computer USB port. Worked just fine! So the problem was the electric plug, not the cord after all. Kept the new charge cord anyway, and noticed the electric plug was a new conformation, so they apparently knew of the problem. My solution: purchase USB hub wall charger.
