    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!

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!

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 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.

I didn't complain a having to buy a new one. The second battery is now busting at the seams after about a year and a half of far fewer charge cycles. I love that it's user replaceable. I hate that I have to either buy another battery at $130 or throw away a perfectly good computer. I'm not a fan of planned obsolescence. So, I'll call Apple and see what they do.

    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.
