    Seems to works fine

    posted by RomaVictor on 05/27/2013 Certified Owner

    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.

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

    Pros:
    In the Netherlands a original replacement battery (Apple store) costs $183. And an imitation costs around $78. After fully charged our Macbook runs just under 5 hours with brightness on 60%. We use it to browse on the internet trough a wireless connection.
    Cons:
    The new battery is not an exact fit but that doesn't effect the working. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

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

    Pros:
    Looks very good works well. Feels firm and fits the mac book very well. Battery life is fine and it's seen as an original by the mac book. Color wise it's hard to see it's not original, it's a bit 'whiter' and more shiney I guess. Comes in a good wrapping a...
    Cons:
    The fit could be a bit better.
