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

    Pros:

    I searched around for Macbook batteries for a while before finding this one at trusty Dealextreme. Shipped quickly. Cheapest price by a long shot ($20). Works as intended with no ill effects.

    Cons:

    Battery life is shorter than a new Macbook battery (I get 2 hours consistently)

    OtherThoughts:

    For its cost, it does a fantastic job. Obviously not up to the normal Apple standard, but it was fine for what I needed - the ability to be able to use my laptop away from its charger for periods of time.

    Bottomline:

    Buy it. Other replacement batteries will cost you twice as much and give you marginally better performance. If you want a backup or, like me, had just burnt my old battery out and was being driven crazy by having the computer shut down every time it became disconnected from the power source, this was a great and cheap solution.
