  • Seems to works fine

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

    Pros:

    Seems to work very well, like it should. Battery life seems to be identical to the original Macbook battery (when I first got it). Has lights on the bottom to see how much charge is left.

    Cons:

    - The added little manual, which is written in terrible English, points out that you should only use it for two years. After that, it can be dangerous...
    - The manual also says that you shouldn't let the battery drop below 3%.
    - This makes me a bit worried about the safety of this battery, though I use other devices with batteries from China with no issues. The original Apple battery was also made in China anyway.

    OtherThoughts:

    If you don't want to invest to much money in a NewerTech battery (€80) or an Apple battery (€120!), this is a good battery for a great price. I've had it for three months with no problems.

    Bottomline:

    Good, cheap and appears to be safe.
