  • My macbook has a new lease on life.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    -Price is a fraction of a retail apple battery
    -Goes right in the slot like the original
    -Has the diagnostic leds
    -I get about 4h of "idle" life (with wlan) with it, which is nice. Reports 5000mah of capaticy.
    -the hardware seems to be 100% compatible and the macbook seems to be recognizing everything right.

    Cons:

    -slightly different color than in the laptop
    -the "paw" is hard plastic, instead of soft plastic like the other 3 paws in the laptop.
    -the adhesive used on the protective plastic film is really hard to remove. I still have remains of it in the battery.

    OtherThoughts:

    This product made me really happy and satisfied. I was in the situation, where my old battery had died completely. The cost of a retail Apple battery is just robbery to the point of where I started to think of getting a new laptop since it would be cheaper.

    This would of been a shame, since my old macbook works just fine. Then again a macbook with magsafe power cord and a dead battery is a pain. You can't really move the computer without it shutting down due to the connector falling off.

    Bottomline:

    If you want a working battery for your macbook and don't want to get poor while getting one, this is the one to get.
