    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!

    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!

    Apple has engineered a great battery for the 17" MacBook Pro. It keeps chugging for 3.5 to 4 hours and greatly outpaces my old G4 Apple has engineered a great battery for the 17" MacBook Pro. It keeps chugging for 3.5 to 4 hours and greatly outpaces my old G4 15" Powerbook battery with double the operating time. I'm very impressed. Good work Apple!

    Note: If anyone isn't getting fabulous operating time, or is experiencing battery warpage or overheating, take your notebook into the Apple store and get a new battery. If you're within warranty it should be free, or if out of warranty, $129 is a small price to pay for the power this little beast puts out.

I turned it over and was surprised to see the battery case completely unglued and bulging. DOA! Luckily I had an old battery and put that in. Back in business. What a rotten design if this keeps happening.

    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.

    All new Apple products (those with an Apple logo, not just sold on their website/in their stores) co All new Apple products (those with an Apple logo, not just sold on their website/in their stores) come with a 1-year limited warranty. Any Apple Store can run a diagnostic in a few minutes to check on the health of your battery, but I'd recommend making an appointment when you go in.

    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.
