    322 cycles!!!

    • Written by from Bloomsburg

    Just hit the 300 mark on cycles my battery has been through and it just now started to fail on me. I think the MBP is a wonderful machine and has never given me a problem what so ever. I purchased my MPB in Dec '06 and never followed and battery recharging plan, I mean seriously who has time for that. All in all, I have no complaints over the battery or design of the MBP. Go APPLE!!

    Great Job Mac.

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    I think you've guys done a wonderful job considering the dimensions of this computer. I honestly believe that 2 1/2 hours of battery life is great in comparison to the 1" thick computer you have given the world. My computer works just great and my battery is over one year old, has been through 151 cycles (according to iStatNano), and is as good as new. AppleCare hasn't given me a problem and I believe that I'll buy from you guys for myself, my parents, and whomever else that I could buy your products for as gifts. My Macbook Pro works just as great - actually it works better - than any desktop PC that I've ever used in my life, thanks again Apple.

    This battery life good; it has the potential to be even better. This battery gives the MacBook Pro exceptional functionality and I would suggest purchasing it.

    Great battery

    • Written by from Boca Raton

    Bought my MBP in 2007 and my original battery just failed. That's 7.5 years on one battery. And I was occasionally abusive by leaving it plugged in too long. I am buying another (1st replacement) now. Hope this one lasts half as long.

    Not as bad as most people say

    • Written by from Pilesgrove

    When I first bought my macbook pro i could get about 5 hours of life out of this battery. Now I've had it for a year and 4 months and I can get about 2 hours of life out of the battery. Not too bad in my opinion, especially since I didn't always cycle it once a week like I should have. For the first year that I had my macbook I could get on average about 4 hours of life, it wasn't until recently that it started going downhill. If I had cycled it once a week every week I'm sure my battery life would be much better now.

    i've had my MBP for 6 months now and i dont cycle or follow any of the recomended charging teckneques and i think that my battery might even be lasting longer now than when it was new (I've had 3+ hours before) so i might just be lucky or it will soon starty to deplete but so far so good :)

    Great battery

    • Written by from Ipswich

    I use my MacBook Pro every day, all day. One day, I forgot to pack the power cable before I left for the office. With brightness turned down, and non-essential services switched off, my battery kept me going from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

    To say, if you have had difficulties, that "I'll never buy apple again!" is a little silly - these batteries are no different in any way from those that you would find in ANY other current laptop.

    Having used PCs on Windows for years until two years ago, I will ONLY buy Mac again!

    I've had my MBP for a year now and it still shows 98% health. I use my laptop for everything I do. I travel at least once a month and take my laptop with me. Haven't had a single problem :)

    So what, get over it.

    • Written by from costa mesa

    It gets hot when you charge it, dies after 2 years, so what, get over it.
    My battery has 32 months (Coconut)and is half strength. It still is twice as good as my old laptop.
    You like your laptop? Buy a new battery and get on with your life.
    Take a few steps to stretch the life like storing it in a fridge while you use the plug:

    Awesome battery with great life

    • Written by from Denver

    I have had my MacBook Pro for over 10 months now. The battery has been great all the way through. Using coconutBattery, my battery health is typically shown at 95-97 percent. The most recent battery update has only increased my battery's life. I get impressive battery life even when using apps like Safari, Word, or Entourage. I constantly have over 2 hours and 15 minutes of battery life, as shown by the system. These things are great! Good job Apple!

    Take care of your things.... no problems

    • Written by from Headingley

    This battery is great if you follow basic battery maintenance. Don't just run on AC. Cycle battery every week or so even if you don't need to use the battery. Stop posting about how your battery won't hold a charge when the real reason is that you are lay and simply inept at maintaining electronics.

    I like this battery

    • Written by from Northridge

    Only reason why I thought I should review this product is because everyone else here is being so negative.

    I've had my macbook pro for almost 2.5 years. According to iStat Pro, I've gone through 854 cycles. I still have 40 minutes of charge for video or 2.2 hours of charge for non-intensive stuff, like taking notes, surfing, etc. I love this battery and am sad that I will have to replace it soon.

    User Battery Life...

    • Written by from concord

    Lets be honest a lot of us didn't learn when we were younger that batteries need to fully be used up before recharging it. So let me remind all of the users who beat the computer up by charging their computer all day long or charge it while it still has half a battery charge left before needing it. I love the Battery it works the way i need it too and its been holding its charge very well over the past 6 months. Cause i take good care of it. Don't blame Apple, or Microsoft, Etc. Etc. take better care of your computer.
