    Worked like a charm the first time I put it in.Very good value for money. Very good investment in increasing the life of a dying Macbook. The OS had a hard time calculating the actual time of juice I had left, would go from 40% to 7% in a jiffy. After a year of use, the battery started to beef-up also known as the "inflate" effect. Since I ... Read more

    Cheap compared to the original apple replacement. It works fine for 2 years, the last month one battery cell starts to inflate and now the battery is useless less duration than the original, 2.5 hours. The "inflate" effect after 2 years. The quality of construction is enough, more plastic and the replacement does not really fits, but it works.... Read more

    Bearing in mind that this is not an original from Apple, it is way cheaper than one and although the charge will never be similar to an original battery, it is still quite good, when you take into account the price. - Build quality; - Color (very close if not exactly the same); - Package (it came in a very neat package); - LEDs that indicate the amount ...

    - It's way cheaper than the original one. I'd pay U$ 250 for a new one here in Brazil. - The color is pretty the same - LED botton works - Doesn't work ok with OSX regarding charge. It jumps from 75% to 7%! And on 5% my Macbook turns off. Very disappointing. - I still couldn't reach 2 hours of use. I get 1 hour of hard use, not more than that. It's ... Read more

    Very good value for money. A good replacement for the original. Fits my macbook perfectly. The white color is very close to the original. Sometimes the remaining time reading that the OS reports is not accurate and the computer shots down when it tells that there are still about 30 minutes left. Not a big issue for me as I usually don't get to these ... Read more

    Works fine with my 1st gen C2D macbook, get about 2-2,5h per charge. Incredible value. Does not seem to communicate very well with osx regarding charge, it's constantly jumping between 6 and 12 hours of remaining battery life on the estimate but then just dies after about 2-2,5 hours. I guess you don't get a warning because osx has a hard time calculating ... Read more

    It does the job! It is really cheap, because you pay almost 100 euro's for 1 Apple en for this it is arround 30 not 5200mAh but 2550mAh doesn't fit entirely... so this battery is just not as powerfull as the original one... but in europe you can have 3 of these for the price of 1 original.... only you have to be aware that the power that is printed ...

    This is a very good battery. It fits perfectly in my MacBook and has been recognized by it immediately. Different to another reviews I have noticed that the white color is very close to the original. I have just received it, so I cannot evaluate it duration, but it works very good for some hours before needs to be recharged. It really looks like original.... Read more
