Quality Parts

Not all parts or sellers are created equal. And sometimes it’s hard to tell apart the good, the bad, and the inconsistent. We’ve spent more than a decade vetting sources and suppliers.

Our parts quality consistently leads the industry because we have the most robust processes: all parts are rigorously tested, iFixit certified, and backed by our Lifetime Guarantee.


We scour the world’s electronics markets for the best quality parts. Sometimes OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts are available, but many manufacturer parts just aren’t available—to anyone. Apple, for example, won’t sell replacement parts for iPhones or iPads.

Not every part can be OEM. And sometimes, you don’t want them to be—manufacturers sometimes set ridiculously high parts prices to discourage repair. We source parts from component manufacturers, aftermarket suppliers, and even harvest parts from brand-new products that have been returned to retailers. Our parts strike the best balance of cost, availability, function, reliability, and durability.

“This time, I went with a high quality replacement from iFixit instead of some crap off eBay.”

- Greg, Hillsborough, NJ


Trust, but verify. We examine every pixel. We check the cycle count and capacity of every laptop battery. We test and re-test components, verify product compatibility, and carefully inspect every single part. If a part doesn’t meet our meticulous standards, we won’t sell it. Period.

“I wish I could go back in time and buy my parts from iFixit in the first place. I purchased from eBay and Amazon... all batteries were dead on arrival and not compatible. You have my business going forward.”

- Daniel, Austin, TX
