I became so tired of pouring over reviews of people who leave two or three stars for a generic replacement battery because the color of the replacement battery didn't "match" the white color of their two-year-old notebooks. Come on, everybody, my Macbook is as yellow as my teeth after being subjected to two years of coffee spills and tobacco smog. What do you expect? Should the vendor of this fine battery include a packet of OxiClean to match their factory-shelved product to the second-hand laptop you bought from "macusrman" on eBay for $528.50?

Oh yeah, and this battery "doesn't fit." I've got news for you: neither do your pants. Eat less and exercise more. Give me a break, people. You subtracted years from my life by making me stressed out about whether or not this battery would fit in the underside of my computer. It turns out, actually, that the battery doesn't fit perfectly. The inside edge of the battery sits about .4 millimeters lower than the outside edge. Very distracting.

Listen, I own three Apple computers and two iPhones. My new Mac Mini is connected to my HDTV, and I have an iTunes account. I love the reliability of Apple products, and I was very afraid to buy any battery that was not made by Apple. I have had trouble using non-Apple memory in my computers, so I understand that people have justifiable reasons for second-guessing the wisdom of this kind of purchase.

However, after dropping the $41.47 for this battery (vs. the $129.00 that Apple charges), I can safely report that this battery fits perfectly, charges correctly, and appears to function appropriately with the battery management software on Snow Leopard 10.6.5. And if it doesn't last two years, then maybe I'll just buy two more.

I bought this battery to replace the original battery for macbook, which had just died. I bought this off Amazon because it was about fifty dollars cheaper than if I were to buy it direct from Apple. The item was shipped very quickly, but I am ultimately disappointed in it. The battery works well, but it does not quite fit properly, almost as if the plastic outer-covering was not cut correctly. Also, that outer-shell separates very easily from the battery, as if it were only attached by very low-quality glue. I have only had the battery for a couple of days, and I have not experienced any problems with the charging aspect of it, but i feel that this was very shoddily made. Next time, I will buy the battery directly from Apple.

This battery fits and works with my 13" white MacBook (not a MacBook Pro). Like other reviewers, the battery works great. Only complaint is that it doesn't fit quite as perfectly as the original batteries. Not quite as flush and color slightly off.

The battery seems to run out of a juice a bit faster then my mac battery that suddenly stopped working a few months ago.

The item arrived extremely fast, only 2 days after ordering.
It was a perfect fit on my first generation MacBook, though the white plastic foot doesn't match my three other gray ones.
Like many of the reviews here that battery was not recognized and my laptop would randomly shutdown.
I sent the battery back using the enclosed enveloped and stamp and received a new one a few days later.
The replacement so far is working perfectly and getting over 4.5 hours on it.
For $90 less then the Apple Battery and Free Shipping this definitely seems worth it.
Looks like there may be Quality Control issues with the manufacturer, so just keep exchanging it till you get a winner.

UPDATE: The replacement battery worked great for almost 2 weeks, now my MacBook won't turn on with it in, even plugged into the wall.
Using my old battery for now. The replacement battery also did not include a return envelope with postage like the first shipment.
Guess I'm just going to cut my losses at this point.

Apple wants $129 for their batteries, but our Macbook is about 5 years old so I looked for a cheaper alternative. This battery works great out of the package, no problems yet. No it doesn't match color perfectly and it does have a small (very small) gap, but for the amount of money saved, it was well worth it. The color and size differences are not even noticeable during normal use. I would highly recommend this product.

While travelling, I can use my macbook for 6 hrs working on word prosessing and can watch about 3hrs of DVD playback with earphones. Ofcourse I have to optimise settings like turning off wireless and bluetooth (which aren't used while in flight), dimming the LCD, closing unnecessary apps etc. Macbook together with this battery is a good piece of engineering from Apple. Only four stars because the battery forms a part of external plastic and isn't something that slides into a casing. Disadvantage is a slight imperfection in fit.

I too found myself up against that age old problem, a perfectly usable older Mac Book with a dead battery. While I first looked at a replacement from the Apple Store ($130 seemed like an expensive investment for a laptop that was worth $500 at best on Craigslist), so off to the Amazon I went exploring. Free shipping, under $40 bucks, seemed like a deal. I would ignore all those 1 star reviews and only read the good stuff, after all there must be some way to make this bargain work. It was just a battery some Lithium Ion cells wired together in China. The battery worked great out of the box, just one small problem. Unlike the real item once you fully deplete it's charge, it will never be recognized or charge in your laptop again. How do you do this, simple close the lid, let it sleep for a few days, and like some battery comma, it will never awaken from its eternal slumber. Tried all the tricks of resetting the power management system, tired two other Mac Books, to no avail, this battery will never be waken from its deep rest. So rest on my slumbering electron storage unit, my Mac will work for ever tethered on AC life support till I upgrade or bite the bullet and give Apple their ransom. There is no happy end, just 1 star for my lifeless, starless battery.
