    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.

    STOP CRYING! - Learn how to properly use/charge your MBP/MBA

    • Written by from Menomonie

    Ok after reading all of these reviews... I decided to check my battery life after it having said replace soon. I got my MBP over 3 years ago and am looking to replace my battery for the first time. I'm at 1406 cycles and I still get a good 2-3 hours of battery life out of it. LEARN HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LAPTOP! Stop using full screen brightness, don't leave it plugged in at full battery life, and stop complaining about malfunctions when in all reality you have no idea how to take care of your macbook. Stop being so cynical/ignorant and go to an Apple store and get a 1+ year warranty. You're complaining about $129 battery when you have a MBP/MBA - just stop.

    By far the best battery

    • Written by from Aurora

    I have a mid 2010 MBP and till today I used 779 cycles out of my battery and it still has 83% life in it. I could still charge 5725mAH out of 6900mAH(Initail health). It still gives me about 3.5 hours of video on a single charge. I believe no other battery is as good as this one.

    I have been using my MBP since 2007 and have loved it! I may have just gotten lucky but I have not had to replace the battery at all until just this month. Its been 6 years!

    15" Macbook Pro original battery for laptop purchased in 2007

    • Written by from Cochiti Lake

    Just had to jump into this fray on these batteries. I purchased my 15" Macbook Pro in the fall of 2007 and continued to use it non-stop until I purchased the smaller and lighter Macbook Pro 13" in August 2011. The original 15" battery was still giving me about 30 minutes of work time until early 2012 (it has since died completely), providing me with about 5 years of continuous use. I am now about to purchase a new battery for my 15". I will review it again after I see how the new 15" battery performs. PS--both computer and battery survived having a small chandelier fall on it from a ceiling weakened by too much rain! MAC's really are "built tough"!

    Long Lasting! Still works perfect!

    • Written by from Charleston

    Used it for several years! Still works perfect! Don't know what the issue is with these batteries maybe I just got lucky. Good part is if the battery breaks you can take it to the Apple store so I don't see the big deal here.

    Got 4 Great Years From Original Battery

    • Written by from Santa Monica

    In fact, I'm still using the original battery, which has gone from supplying 4+ hours of use down to an hour and a half. Why am I replacing it? Other than the Service Battery message it displays, it has been dying without warning at around the 30% level.

    It has far exceeded my expectations. The only thing I can guess about those complaining of short battery life is that they primarily use their MacBook Pro while plugged into the AC outlet. I plug mine in only to charge and 90% of my use is battery only. I only hope my second battery is equally as reliable!

    Still Chuggin'

    • Written by from SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE

    I got my 15" MacBook Pro in mid-2010 and have gone through cycles, leaving me at 67-68% battery health. I am very pleased with the performance of the battery considering the large amount of use I get out of it.

    It definitely is important to know how to take care of your batteries in regards to running it down and things like that. (FYI: my system is noting that I should "Replace Soon," but nothing has gone wrong with the battery, and I will be holding off before purchasing a new battery as a back up.

    Cycle the battery!

    • Written by from Charlottetown

    I have gotten over 600 cycles out of my battery and although it needs to be replaced now, it still lasts for about 45 minutes. I've had my battery for over 3 years (I can't remember exactly, I just know the warranty on my pro is over) and I cycled the battery faithfully at least once a week (usually more often) and when I saw the health declining at one point I even brought it back up by making sure to do more full cycles rather than partly draining/charging it. These batteries are ridiculously awesome if you take care of them.

    Awesome battery.

    First one just died after 4 years. Cycle count was 711. Anyone who has issues needs to learn how to power cycle their battery or get a desktop.

    Battery Went Bad

    MacBook Pro Battery went dead so I took it to the Apple Store. They tested it and determined that I didn't last as long as it should have so they gave me a new one. Free of charge. This was a year and a half ago,

    For all those reading bad reviews

    • Written by from Manahawkin

    Look people, if you have a 15 inch Macbook Pro like I have, you came to this page and see a sea of bad reviews from people who have batteries die after a few months. Here's my deal. I, like many "five-star raters" here have owned a Mac for 5 years and my battery has lasted that long only to recently show signs of dying. I have 61 cycles left on my old battery and it still lasts 3 hours if I let it drain close to 10%. This is while running graphic design programs, internet, and communicating with fellow workers. My point is if you have a 15 inch you have no choice, you either buy from Apple or a cruddy one from Amazon or eBay and end up with a meltdown. Price wasn't an issue for me, I like a product sold by people I know will let me return it if there is any problem, fast shipping, and patient customer support. So do not be put off by bad ratings, I can't tell you those individuals mistreated their batteries, and I don't know what I'm doing right, but I can assure you as someone who used to hate Macs, I trust this product.

    long life

    • Written by from Pleasant View

    My first battery started to die before the 300 cycle limit so it was covered under warranty. My second battery has worked great for 5 years. It's just now going out...

    Long Life Battery, If We Don't Abuse It

    • Written by from Stamford

    I purchased this battery like a month ago. The Apple Store Sales & Customers Service, gave me some very good few tips not to abuse the battery, "Do not overnight charge the battery" So it would give a long battery life. If it's getting hot, we will have to purchase protective case and a fan to avoid always getting hot and make sure, we gotta have a time limit to use our laptop.So we can avoid those problems. Those are sold separately and optional. But it is absolutely worth them to buy for the benefit of our laptop.

    I hope this is a helpful tips.
