Seems to works fine – 5000mAh Replacement Lithium Battery Pack for Apple Macbook 13" (A1185) Laptops Reviews

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.
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.
Other:
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.
