This battery charges in about 2 hours and will run my 15" MacBook Pro for 3.5 to 4+ hours depending on usage. It has a 5-LED battery power gage and button on the bottom just like Apple's battery and it works flawlessly (just the same as my original Apple battery). I HIGHLY recommend this replacement battery over any other aftermarket battery and even over Apple's battery as it is a bit lighter and costs over $40 less. The battery check button is quality and made of metal and looks good but does lack the "brushed metal" look and tapered-edges of the button on Apple's battery. If I get a chance, I will upload some pictures to demonstrate what I mean... but the point is this is an excellent battery and you should not hesitate to buy it over the crappy alternatives available.
The other batteries I tried on Amazon did not hold a charge longer than 2 hours and, even fully charged, only reported a 96% charge at most. The other batteries had power indicators on the bottom that did not work properly or only worked once or twice before they broke. The power check buttons on the other batteries were made of plastic and had rough edges.
I researched extensively before buying the Lenmar battery but this was by far the correct choice. This battery should have a review on TUAW.com but I was unable to find any battery recommendations on their website. I used trial and error instead and wound up very happy with the Lenmar battery.
Lenmar is a reputable battery manufacturer as opposed to the no-name aftermarket batteries also available on Amazon. You will not be disappointed in this battery!!
I would say 3 very positive things:
- the battery is a PERFECT fit
- looks, acts, feels like an OEM battery, including the buttom LED monitor on back
- charges fully
The negative? I wouldn't necessarily bank on the time calculation from the laptop. It's far shorter than 4 hours. Maybe 2 at best. But, hey, for $50 less, I'd say I got my money's worth. Plus, I've got a charger / power cable if things go too low to quickly, and I leave it plugged in many times anyhow, as many of you guys do as well.
I don't have a shallow side which compels me to sit in Starbucks for hours letting customers ooh n ahh at my Mac. If you are one of those people, buy an OEM battery - if not this battery is as close as you'll get to the real thing.
I should first note that the current price for this battery is about half what I paid in February 2011 (albeit supplied by a different vendor). With that in mind, I bumped up the rating by one star as this price makes it an incredible deal -- not one without some difficulties, however.
On the plus side, the Lenmar LBMC348 is -- to all outward appearance -- an exact replacement for the original Apple battery that came with my MacBook Pro. Fit, finish and useable charge-level lights are all indistinguishable from the OEM product. After nearly 10 months of use and 200+ charge cycles, I can tell you that it still holds a decent charge. CoconutBattery and iStat tell me that the battery's health is 91% -- all to the good. I generally leave my laptop plugged in but try to make sure to remove the plug to let the battery drain at least once each day. I recalibrate the battery every month or so according to Apple's instructions. If I'm not running World Community Grid in the background or watching a DVD, I currently get 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. of run time per charge. Overall, I am pleased with the performance. There is, however, a weak spot which leads me to...Read more ›
Durability remains to be seen, but even Apple's batteries never lasted for more than about 18 months for me.
