    Hi guys,
    May MacBook Air (mid 2011) battery has died.
    I ordered a replacement but got A1496 battery (used in mid 2012 laptops) instead of A1405.
    They say that it's a good for replacement, but I see that voltage differs slightly (it has 7.6 V instead of 7.3V).
    I'm afraid that higher voltage can damage the circuit.
    How do you think is it possible to use A1496 with mid 2011 mac book air ?

    Thank you for any suggestion

    it will be fine. the machine will boost or limit the voltage as needed. nearly all the 13" batteries are interchangeable for the MBA models.
