    After getting my aluminum macbook I decided that i would need a secondary battery because often I am away from a plug all day doin After getting my aluminum macbook I decided that i would need a secondary battery because often I am away from a plug all day doing work. These batteries are great let me tell you. I average 4 hours per charge with brightness and keyboard backlighting at 25% and with airport connected. With 2 of these batteries I almost never have to plug in my laptop during the day, only once I get home for the night and put my laptop away to use my MacPro

    I just came back from my vacation in Europe. I was there for 2 ½ weeks - reason why I purchased my first 13” Aluminum Macbook (wh I just came back from my vacation in Europe. I was there for 2 ½ weeks - reason why I purchased my first 13” Aluminum Macbook (which by the way it’s awesome!) - Anyway, after I purchased my Macbook, I realized that one battery will probably not be enough as the plane ride was pretty long. I decided to order another battery and let me tell you, I am glad I did! It was perfect for my trip, I got to see a couple of movies and work with pictures while in the plane and train rides of the trip. Changing the battery is a breeze, takes me about a minute to do it… very easy!

    I totally recommend it, especially if you have to travel often. About the charge life, I experienced 4 hrs, but this is watching movies and with airport on (Blue tooth off). You may be able to get 5 hrs out of these batteries if all that you are doing is word processing.

    Enjoy!

    Connecting to the internet won't help, but it will still last enough.

    Buying it will help on long trips.

Once it's at 100% it should be unplugged. This somehow extends the battery life. I have tried it and it works. Hope it helps.

  • 18 months old, "service battery", holds charge for 10 mins

    Title says it all. MacBook does tell us to "service battery" in the battery monitor.

    Battery shows hours of charge, but machine Title says it all. MacBook does tell us to "service battery" in the battery monitor.

    Battery shows hours of charge, but machine will suddenly die (no proper shutdown etc) after about 10 minutes on battery. Pushing the battery indicator after it dies indicates just one blinking led. When charged it displays full battery, and 3,5 hours of battery life. Battery has about 200 cycles I believe.

    Given how expensive these batteries are, having it completely die on us just 18 months in is a big disappointment. Of course outside Apple battery warranty, even though it clearly is a defect since it went from really fine to completely dead in one step :(

    We've had to put in the original battery from 2008 again, which still holds about one hour of charge.
