    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!

    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.

    Went to use my MBP one day and couldn't figure out why it was not sitting level on my desk. I turned it over and found the battery Went to use my MBP one day and couldn't figure out why it was not sitting level on my desk. I turned it over and found the battery was swelled up and bursting from the body. I thought I was the only one to have this problem, until reading these reviews. Do not plug the laptop in unless the battery is completely drained. Prolonged power will destroy the battery. Sad situation.
