Replacing the battery in my Dell Precision 5510 laptop

23 July, 2020

My 2016 Dell Precision 5510 is getting long in the tooth for a laptop. I ordered a replacement battery from iFixit and swapped out the aging original battery, which was only holding 46% of its rated capacity.

The battery life is bearable now, but it’s still no MacBook…

I also took my order as an opportunity to pick up iFixit’s Mako 64-bit driver kit, and I love it! It’s replacing a cheap Radioshack kit that I’m constantly spilling on the floor.
