    I bought my MacBook Pro 3 months ago and everything was fine until a few weeks when my computer started to shut down without any I bought my MacBook Pro 3 months ago and everything was fine until a few weeks when my computer started to shut down without any advertisement. Right now I can not work on my mac if it is not connected to electricity power. I thik that Apple should be aware of the problem and replace all this kind of batteries.

    I bought a MacBook pro six months ago in July 2006, the battery life decreased to about 1.5 hours life after a full charge after 7 I bought a MacBook pro six months ago in July 2006, the battery life decreased to about 1.5 hours life after a full charge after 70 cycles (Apple's support site claims that the batterys are designed to retain 80% of their original charge after 300 cycles). The MacBook also started to shut-off power completely without warning (loosing any unsaved work). After 85 "cycles" the battery started getting extremely hot, warped, and now does not hold any charge at all.

They are usele Given Apple's usual attention to detail these batteries are possibly the greatest oversight in their product range. They are useless. I'm on my second (both bought in store), and the latest one won't charge at all (sat at 0%) after just under 2 years. At least the first two (the original and first replacement) made 3 years a piece, but they seem to be getting worse. A friend bought a copy battery off of one of the large 'auction' sites (which I berated him for!) and his has outlasted mine which about sums up the ownership experience, whose laughing now?!. Given my latest gen MBP 13" battery is asonishingly good I just don't get what the score is with these units, but they should by now be about £50 each rather than >£100 each given the woeful lifetime and performance vs. newer kit. Shame on you Apple, an absolutely terrible product, I won't buy another out of principle, so it's AC cord from now on.

    Don't even bothering getting this one and also don't even think that £109 price tag suggests that it is top quality battery. Far Don't even bothering getting this one and also don't even think that £109 price tag suggests that it is top quality battery. Far from it!

    Bought this battery from Apple store. 2 1/2 years later and only 155 charge cycle, I got 'Service Battery' warning! Apple support said you have to baby-sit and bottle-fed this battery to ensure that this very, very fragile battery has a good life! Unlike the cheap PC laptop batteries that were abused yet last very well??!

    Just stay away from it and you couldn't go much wrong with buying a cheap 3rd party battery.

    Battery dangerously swollen after only moderate use. Brought from an Apple Store a while back to breathe some life into an old MBP Battery dangerously swollen after only moderate use. Brought from an Apple Store a while back to breathe some life into an old MBP. Went to use the machine recently and was greeted with a warning message to immediately replace the battery.

    Consider buying a 3rd party battery instead, this official one is clearly not up to par despite its price.

    Just plug in your ac adapter and use the computer. Ensure the battery if fully charged before using Just plug in your ac adapter and use the computer. Ensure the battery if fully charged before using it on battery power and let it drain all the way down before the next charge. From then on, use the battery about once a week till it is all the way down and you are getting those "Save your work now" messages" and let it charge all the way up again. You can use the computer while it is charging. All of this is from the a recent Genius Bar appointment where they told me my battery was failing for lack of use and that it had a very low number of cycles on it and that was not good for it.

    Realistically this battery will last around 3 hours as long as there is not heavy usage of the CPU o Realistically this battery will last around 3 hours as long as there is not heavy usage of the CPU or GPU. So as long as you are doing basic things like e-mail, web surfing, etc you should get decent life out of it. Also turning down brightness, running only 1 program at a time, and turning off bluetooth will all help preserve battery life. Also running it in cycles and using a battery keeper program will help to extend the life. I am a photographer and if I am doing light photo editing I can pull 2-4 hours out of this battery as long as I adhere to the aforementioned guidelines.
