I was skeptical and worried when I saw some of the reviews and the difficulty people were having. It turned out to be ok after all.

Very helpful video which persuaded me to buy this battery. My experience with it is identical and even a little bit better as to time than mentioned in the video. Also after calibrating it, the full capacity jumped from 5000 to 5250.

Can I ask how you calibrate the battery? Thanks.

I'm sorry, I didn't need to do any calibration, it worked right out of the box.

Great review, thank you! I'm going to purchase it NOW, and return the $139.00 one I bought an hour ago from the Apple store as soon as it arrives, haha.

LOL Thanks for the video review, I just bought a used MacBook on Craigslist; after watching your review and looking at my new baby I realized I was already running with an aftermarket battery - which makes it easier to take that leap of faith.

Hey Matthew,

Thanks for the video review because I usually read the bad reviews first (and sometimes the only ones I read), but your video review helped put me at ease and I'm tired of worrying myself that the Macbook is going to die when it gets unplugged. Right now the battery we have is completely dead.

Thank you for the video! I plan to purchase a backup battery and need to save pennies right now. Your video made me feel ok about it :)!

Hey there, I'm responding to your battery review. I'm wondering how it's been working for you now, two years after getting it. Did it hold up, or peter out?.... thanks

Still working fine. Battery has lost a little of its original capacity, but that is to be expected after 150 or so cycles.

Thank you for the update, I"m in.

You said earlier "Also after calibrating it, the full capacity jumped from 5000 to 5250."
How exactly can I calibrate this battery -- does it require special equipment?

thanks again.
