5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Battery! Hint READ THIS BEFORE INSTALL!, February 19, 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Anker Laptop Replacement Battery Pack [Li-Polymer 6000mAh/67Wh] for A1322 A1278 (Mid 2009, Early 2010, Early / Late 2011, Mid 2012) Unibody MacBook Pro 13" with 18 Month Warranty (Electronics)
I've purchased hundreds of products from Amazon for over the last 6 years and this is the first time I took time to review.
That's how much I love this battery!!
I received my battery on 02/07/2014 today is 02/19/2014, it took me 15 minutes to install but that's only because I had to take the battery out and re-install.
After the battery was completely installed, I had the same problem as several other reviewers. My mouse pad was hard to press down on the lower left corner and it took a very hard push to get it to react, so I decided to remove and inspect the battery in comparison to my original MAC battery.
What I found was on the underside of the battery there are 3 tiny square rubber feet along the front edge of the battery.
On the original battery these rubber feet were flush with the surface of the battery and the rubber feet on the replacement
Anker battery are not flush, they are slightly higher so I simply peeled of the middle rubber foot ( which is the one located under the mouse pad) and VOILA! The mouse pad was fine. As a matter of fact it works better than when the original battery was in.
In short
I RECOMMEND REMOVING YOUR OLD BATTERY AND COMPARING THE RUBBER FEET TO THE NEW ONE BEFORE INSTALL or just remove the middle rubber foot right off the bat and all will work well.
The re-install took less than 5 minutes and my macbook pro works better than it ever did with the original battery which is great because I always felt like the macbook pro was just OK as far as performance but with the new battery I now understand what everybody loves about this machine.
Highly recommend this battery replacement for for macbook pro or any other compatible macbooks.

Quality information. Any info to prevent several r&r's is valuable.

Your advice did not work, sadly. This is a very poor design choice by Apple to leave such a small margin between the battery and the exposed backside of the track pad.

This is so great! Thank you! Unfortunately it didn't help much. The battery is about 8 months old and its starting to swell inside and it turns out thats the problem. I was so excited to try your solution and it was because of investigating this that we found the battery to be getting lumpy inside. We removed the rubber thing, and another , and the big plastic sticked that was on the bottom of the battery, and adjusted the mouse screw and it made one side really loose and clicky, but the left side is still stuck. And the battery has a kin of lump under it there. Anyway, thats for the info!
