3.0 out of 5 stars Not pretty, but functional, July 16, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: New Black 10.8V,5200mah,Replacement Li-ion Battery For Apple Macbook 13 Inch A1185, A1181, MA566,MA561 (Personal Computers)
This battery doesn't match the matte black finish of the MacBook, but I actually like the matte/shiny contrast. If you're an Apple purist and put great stock in the company's aesthetic, this battery will disrupt the look of your MacBook. As far as its practical virtues, the battery behaves exactly as the factory-issued one did (except that this time I'll take the battery out when I have the laptop lugged in and hopefully avoid the bloated battery situation that made me buy this in the first place).

This battery has the light up indicator present on the factory-issued batteries (surprisingly), but (unsurprisingly) it didn't work properly from the beginning. It's a very minor concern for me--I never really used the indicator, except to pretend the battery was a futuristic landmine.

Overall, the item is a functional alternative to paying Apple twice as much for a slightly higher quality replacement. I debated whether to give this battery a 3 or 4, but I settled on 3 because of the broken indicator lights.
