This battery only lasts 1 hour.
Curtis G. Glenn
Even with the battery charged, the computer wouldn't wake up from sleep mode.

It's not, by any means, an extended battery.

I wanted another battery for my laptop to use on long overseas fights.Got the 1rst battery from Brilliant store: packaged well: looked brand new and exactly like the original removable battery from Apple except for the logo. When I inserted it, it was charged and worked until I tried to re-charge it: no go: it would constantly say "Not Charging" when the power supply was used on the laptop. So, I sent it back for a refund but was urged to try a 2nd battery. that one sent after 2 weeks that I returned the first was DOA: no charge and would not charge. Asked for refund but they did not want to give me one because after all these returns that took 4 weeks, it was over 30 days and no refunds after 30 days! I had to get the ok from their supervisor which took 2 hours! Still waiting for my refund..Im not holding my breath.
Advice: go with the real thing, an apple laptop battery: You pay a little more but you know it will work

It seemed like a good idea to buy a battery with 25% more life. Only theirs a catch, It doesn't charge when the computer is on. I tried two different batteries and neither would charge. I ended up waisting my money on shipping back the item twice. Bottom line DO NOT PURCHASE this battery.

In short, this battery is a waste of money, because it does not seem to have a very long lifetime as far as recharge cycles go. It's going downhill in a hurry.

WIth great trepidation, I ventured once again into the unpredictable world of non-OEM rechargeable batteries. I thought I'd try again, since the penalty for buying the geniune article was steep, plus, this battery had a little bit more capacity than the stock Apple battery.

I carefully followed all the instructions for charging the battery initially, discharging it, etc, to calibrate the charging circuit in my MacBook Pro. Everything seemed fine at first, it lasted longer than my previous original MacBook battery (which had over 300 charge cycles on it, and had finally started to go downhill).

Now, a couple months have passed, and the battery is really falling apart from a battery life perspective. It doesn't even last as long as my old battery anymore, and I've taken to carrying around my old battery as a backup. It goes down particularly fast after it hits 50%. What a pain. So, this was a total waste of money. It may be tempting because the price is so much better than the Apple battery, but it's simply not worth it. You will get better value from the Apple battery, I believe. Don't get me wrong - the Apple battery is nothing special, but at least it will give reliable performance, under warranty, for up to a year.

This is my first negative review on Amazon - I tend not to complain about things unless they are really bad. And this battery qualifies.

A couple of weeks (and 11 battery cycles) into this product it holds 86% of its advertised capacity- despite following the instructions to "break it in". Below is the information from System Profiler->Power:

Full charge capacity (mAh): 4518
Health Information:
Cycle count: 11
Condition: Normal
Battery Installed: Yes
Amperage (mA): 885
Voltage (mV): 11959

Very disappointed. It is now no better (actually worse) than my factory battery after over 50 cycles.

It is also worth noting that, despite being advertised as a Lithium Polymer battery, it is a Lithium Ion.

EDIT: After a couple of months I now experience random shutdowns that require I remove and reinsert the battery to boot again.

EDIT2: I finally sent it back for a replacement (and had to foot the shipping costs). The replacement battery also went from showing ~5200mAh to ~4500mAh about 3 days into conditioning. It has now been 3 weeks and it has never returned to the advertised "high capacity". I don't know what 'trick' they're battery is doing to temporarily show a higher capacity- but it is a trick. Stay away.

So they say this battery lasts up to much more than the apple one, when you get it it comes with a paper that says charge it overnight with your laptop turned off and then use it all and repeat the charging instructions for 3 days today. The first three days was great 5 hours or longer, but now is day four and the battery is in it's 100% and only lasts up 1:50 like what is it I didn't pay to get 50% more battery life for three days.

I've had this battery for probably two weeks. The battery is a recycled Apple Macbook Pro battery, so there are no issues with how it fits and operates in my MacBook Pro. The battery does indeed offer more capacity than Apple's battery at nearly half the price, but I was never able to achieve anywhere close to 7.5 hours. I can get close to four hours of battery use, whereas when my MacBook Pro was new, I could get about three hours from Apple's battery. I found that I did need to calibrate the new battery, and Apple has a support document that outlines the steps needed to do this. Overall, I've very satisfied with this product.

The battery arrived swollen so badly it would not fit the computer. The battery cover would not fit because a ruptured, swollen corner protruded so high. Returned and money refunded. Finally turned to Apple although I had hoped to get extended battery life. The Apple version arrived in good shape and is giving about 2.5 hours of battery life.
