Works fine, Looks not so fine.,
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)
I bought this battery for my black macbook because my original battery no longer functioned at all. This product works fine, but the color of the battery is a shiny black, which doesn't match the matte black finish of my computer. As far as I know, they never made a shiny black Macbook, and so this battery will never match anything it was made for. Luckily the battery is on the bottom of the computer so you can't really tell. Also the battery doesn't fit exactly, so the edges bow up a little so that the battery can fit. It's not enough to notice until you hold the computer, but it was a bit difficult to get the battery installed into the computer. My battery life is running somewhere between 3 and 4 hours, so not quite as long as my original battery (that lasted closer to 6 or 7 hours), but still long enough not to be inconvenient.
