2.0 out of 5 stars Mackbook Battery, April 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Laptop Battery for Select Apple MacBooks (Personal Computers)
I was using my power cord to use my computer for about a year. Finally fed up with my computer turning off every time the cord came out, I decided to buy a battery from a third party. I wasn't going to buy from Apple because it just wasn't worth $120 for a one and a half year use of a battery. (I have already got two batteries from mac: the first one that came with the laptop, and the second was from the warranty since the first one didn't last a year. The second battery also lasted from about a year to a year and a half.)

When I received my battery, I followed the instructions and charged the battery to its maximum (it took about 9 hours the first charge) and then completely depleted it. I did this a couple of times because I only got the battery to charge to 96% and no matter how many times i did this process it never reached 100%. Regardless, my battery lasts about 2-3 hours each use. I thought this was amazing because my computer is finally a laptop. I have had this battery for a month now and it still works just as well as the day I got it. It was definitely worth buying this battery instead of paying 3 times as much for a mac battery that I knew would only work for a year and a half.

The only problem I have with it is on the bottom of all mac's there are four grey semi-circles. However, this battery doesn't come with it so there is no friction when you put your laptop on a tilted flat surface.

All in all, I love this battery and the only other test that I'm waiting to see it pass is if it lasts at least a year and a half.

(only lasted six months, it's probably time for me to get a new computer.)
