I was a little wary about purchasing this because of the low price, but I was not disappointed at all. It lasts about 2 hours with full use of the computer with about 6 programs open simultaneously, and have had no problems with it.

Product installed in Apple Powerbook G4 on 12/30/10 and unit was placed on charge. Power meter indicated fully charged in 1 hour. First test of capacity was 2hrs 11 min under normal operation; the power meter showed 14% left.

I purchased this battery for my aging PowerBook G4. The last battery I bought from it came directly from Apple and didn't last much past 2 years. I hope this battery will do better, but at half the cost of the Apple battery I already don't mind as much. So far the battery is working well and runs for about 2 hours on a complete charge.

This is a great, inexpensive, alternative to the overpriced Apple OEM battery. True, as other users have noted, the "aluminum" sticker on the unit does not exactly replicate the shiny outer shell of the PowerBook G4. Honestly, who cares? If you're really that worried about the aesthetics of your laptop battery, perhaps you should spend the $129+ at the Apple store.

I did give the battery 3 stars for construction quality due to the fact that it does not install flush with the laptop body like the original...by a whopping 0.03125 inches. Truthfully, the only complaint I really have about the unit is that the button for activating the charge indicator lights is less-than-responsive and does require a bit more force than the original. Mind you, it *does* work, but you have to want it. Minor inconveniences, considering the cost.

The battery came in working order, fully discharged and has recharged successfully seven times since my purchase:

Battery Installed: Yes
First low level warning: No
Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4247
Remaining Capacity (mAh): 4206
Amperage (mA): -1372
Voltage (mV): 12475
Cycle Count: 7

Four out of five stars for the replacement battery. If it will make my coffee for me in the morning, I will happily grant the coveted five-out-of-five star rating.

Cheers!

I have purchased many Apple Laptop batteries from a variety of different sellers. Other sellers offer comparable prices but their batteries were "off" in one way or another. Some batteries don't quite match the color of the aluminum case. Other batteries stuck out beyond the bottom of the laptop. I had to sand the battery down so the laptop didn't wobble. The price is a lot cheaper because its not an Apple Battery however this battery consistently delivers a minimum of two hours of operation and fits my PowerBook G4 very well, unlike many of the "Franken" batteries available.

I purchased this for my older 15" powerbook G4 in which the original battery only lasted 10 or 15 minutes. This one fit perfectly and I can now go around 2 to 2.5 hours between charges. Have been using it for around 1 month now, with no problems.

My replacement battery for my PowerBook G4 arrived in a reasonable amount of time.
I plugged it in and ran it down to 'reserve battery power', then charged it fully.
I agree with the reviews which noted that the battery doesn't sit as flush in the
socket as the original, but I always have my laptop propped up to help keep it cool,
so that won't bother me.

The power monitor showed about 2.5 hours available at first, but then it climbed to
almost 3.5 hours, which surprised me, based on other reviews I had read. It may be
because I was running my laptop in a very conservative way. I was just editing files,
not surfing the web or gaming or running CPU intensive applications. In addition, I've chosen a screen background named 'void', which is all black, my editing windows are black,
and I lower the screen brightness as much as possible, so there's little energy wasted lighting the screen. It really did last over 3 hours before nearing the 'reserve battery power' warning.

So I'm happy so far, and am reserving a 5-star rating until I can see how well it lasts.

This battery looks exactly like the one that came with my Powerbook G4. It has the indicator lights, button, and metallic finish just like the original, but at a sweet price. It came very well packaged and works perfectly. This is a great bargain for anyone needing a new battery who doesn't want to get screwed by Apple's exorbitant prices.
