Crack a Mac

| January 14th, 2018

After seeing some carnage from expired batteries online, I decided to crack open my mac SE, and remove the on board battery.

Worlds cheapest crack a mac tool for getting those 2 under the handle.

A 1/4″ hex bit, a bic pen barrel, and a T-15 torx bit.


Watch this connector when you pull the board back. It is just long enough to get to this point, then you are out of wire. It is the little white connector next to the large molex power connector. I think it’s the speaker.

Lucky for me, the battery hadn’t shit its guts, and the board was fine.


Snippy – Snippy!


Plugged the scsi, lower floppy, power, and speaker in, and we’re off to the races again.
