    I have two of these batteries and they provide power for three to four hours each. Performance and life are achieved by following I have two of these batteries and they provide power for three to four hours each. Performance and life are achieved by following the instructions in the Help section. Calibrate the battey once a month per the instructions, and don't leave it plugged in all the time. If you constantly use the power cord, remove the battery so it doesn't over charge. If you do these two things you'll get long life.

  • Same battery problem - Not a bad solution!

    3.0 out of 5 stars

    After nine months of constantly using my MacBook Pro 17, the system recently started to shut down unexpectedly, Now the battery ca After nine months of constantly using my MacBook Pro 17, the system recently started to shut down unexpectedly, Now the battery casing is expanding and buckling and will not hold a charge. The effective life cycle with other rechargeable battery systems I have used seems to be about the same.

    I was concerned about additional damage or safety hazard so I removed the battery. I called Apple Support and they agreed without dispute to send a replacement under warranty at no charge. Apple is still the best overall computer experience I have had!

  • Swollen Battery

    Just 3 years, and the computer was shutting itself down auto. The battery life was declining day by day, which was a worry, as new Just 3 years, and the computer was shutting itself down auto. The battery life was declining day by day, which was a worry, as new one cost £100. Yesterday, disaster. My MacBook Pro was wobbling on the desk. The battery was swollen. My God. I was in shock.
    Apple, you must sort this swelling out. It has really annoyed me, as now I've got to pay out.
    Other remarks - the battery is way too hot. I even saw someone on the internet fry an egg on it!!!
    Shame, as I love Apple products in general, and though this has annoyed me, I still do support Apple, as it's the best on the market for designers.

    There is something wrong with either these batteries, or specific models of 17" MBPs that causes these things to fail and swell up There is something wrong with either these batteries, or specific models of 17" MBPs that causes these things to fail and swell up at an absurd rate. I am now considering whether a fourth replacement is even worth it at this point. Can someone please file a class action against Apple for this widespread problem already?

    This has to stop. Terrible that these batteries don't last at the price point.

    I agree with the others. This is major design flaw. I'm now looking at purchasing my third replacement battery. I wish Apple would I agree with the others. This is major design flaw. I'm now looking at purchasing my third replacement battery. I wish Apple would address this issue. It would also be great to simply use the notebook without the battery without taking a processor hit.
