    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 purchased my 17" MBP April 2006, in 2008 I had to replace the battery due to overheating and the "life cycle" Bulge. the second I purchased my 17" MBP April 2006, in 2008 I had to replace the battery due to overheating and the "life cycle" Bulge. the second battery I will now replace this month... The reason it last me over 5 years is it spent most of its time on my desk, plugged in WITHOUT THE BATTERY, the battery would only be used in the laptop when traveling. I realize this IS a design flaw, however Id rather deal with this problem than no longer having an 17" MBP available anymore. Dear APPLE, Its been 8 years with this one, id buy a new 17" if you'd market one.

    I have been using the same (original) battery for 8 years. REALLY! No bulging, no problems.
    The unplugged battery life was 3 1/ I have been using the same (original) battery for 8 years. REALLY! No bulging, no problems.
    The unplugged battery life was 3 1/2 to 4 hours for several years, and slowly decreased to about 2 hours now.

    How? Very simple. I always fully charged the battery (100%), then unplugged it and ran my laptop on only the battery until I got either the "battery is low" warning or it ran completely out of juice, more often waiting until the battery died completely. Result: a battery that still works great after 8 years!

    Unplug your computer unless you are charging!!!
