The first few cycles were odd in that the battery status box would show all sorts of varying times remaining, all the way from around half an hour to over three hours. After many cycles it seems to have settled down and shows a consistent two plus hour time at full charge. In actual modest computing use, not plotting missions to Mars or anything, it does seem to last for around two hours.
When I click on the battery dialogue box, the one in the upper right-hand corner above the menu bar, the "Service Battery" caution appears. Nothing seems wrong, no odd behaviors or anything at all. I suspect that this happens because this is a non-Apple device and doesn't have the secret handshake. This happens with some other devices that are not "approved" by Apple.
In Amazon's product photos there is an image of some sort of certification. Whatever this really means, it didn't come with my battery order.
The little green LED status lights on the battery light up sequentially when being charged, but then turn off when the charging is complete and do not turn on again until the next recharging session.They don't count down as the battery is depleted. Strangely, my nearly dead original Apple battery does that as well. I never used that feature when the MBP was new, so I can't honestly say this is a fault.Read more ›
On the plus side: as near as I can tell, it did actually store electricity and allow that electricity to be used to power my laptop. And after all, that's pretty much the bare minimum a battery ought to be able to do and still be called a battery.
On the negative side: the fit-and-finish of this battery was awful. Something minor like the slightly-different LED status lights (no diffuser to reduce glare, simple on/off rather than Apple's industrial-engineered "fill-up" animation) can easily be overlooked. After all, that has no effect whatsoever on the actual performance of the battery.
But other issues did. The first battery that was delivered to me, the status button wasn't even operable; it was stuck in the "on" position. A replacement battery shipped to me, the button fell off upon opening the package and had to be re-glued. Even after that, the button didn't rest flush with the battery case, causing it to scrape on surfaces (my lap, the table, etc.) that the computer was sitting on.
Operationally, there were also problems with the compatibility with my laptop. The computer never would recognize that the battery had reached a full charge; instead, once the battery got to 100%, the charging would cycle every few seconds between "Charging", "Calculating", and "Charged", with the green/orange power cable light toggling back and forth as the status changed.
Note: I did perform the recommended battery calibration _and_ reset of power management for the computer. The above behavior happened in spite of that.Read more ›
