This one fully charged shows only 3:05 and in a real world test (six or seven programs open, no cd player use, playing iTunes and speakers only) I got only 2 hrs 30 min on the charge.

Now I'm having to payout $130 bucks for a new one. Overpriced and not worth it if I didn't HAVE to have it.

  • Pricey, less powerful, but well made.

    Let's be honest - $130 is a lot to pay for this battery, especially given Apple's tainted reputation with their notebook batteries Let's be honest - $130 is a lot to pay for this battery, especially given Apple's tainted reputation with their notebook batteries. Still - the unibody MBP uses a 50 watt battery, whereas the previous gen had a 60 watt - and lab tests show the battery life in this model has declined. A single battery is not an option for power users.

    This battery comes with an attatchable plastic cover. It's likely because the battery has two centimeter-wide jutting elements that could be easily broken off in a gear bag. I like this, though - because it will also stop dust from touching the metal contacts on the battery.

    You pay to play when you go with an Apple notebook. It's expensive, and I don't expect to get more than two years of use from it - but it's still a solid piece of gear.

    The battery life is terrible, it only lasts a few hours when brand new but dies after a little more than a year. Bad Apple! Bad!

They're Like many have said before, my battery and my wife's battery has swollen til the point where the track pad isn't working. They're both about 4 years old. I have our MBs plugged in and removed the batteries. Works fine without the batteries, Really is terrible to have to keep them plugged in all the time. Hopefully Apple will resolve this issue.
