Great Product! A must have.
this is a great product if you use it properly. Because it is a lithium polymer battery it needs to be charged fully then drain fu this is a great product if you use it properly. Because it is a lithium polymer battery it needs to be charged fully then drain fully and charged fully etc... to keep it healthy. I get about 4 - 4.5 hours out of this if I i drain it and then charge it (like above). when i first used it like normal i only got about two hours until i realized that you had to do this. This is a great product and if you use it in this way you can even achieve as much as five hours! This is a great product and i would highly recommend it.
note: if you use this technique from the start, the battery heath can increase from what it was when you first get it. …

I got this battery because I was going to be going on a 10 hour plane ride. It was very, very nice to be able to keep my computer I got this battery because I was going to be going on a 10 hour plane ride. It was very, very nice to be able to keep my computer for almost the whole trip. I have read a lot of people saying that it last for 3 or 4 hours, but here is a tip, turn down the brightness level on the screen to as low as it can go (I can get by on a notch of 1 when there is a light on in the room). When on the lowest level, the battery lasts for around 5 hours, sometimes a little less, sometimes a little more. I would recommend this for someone who uses their MacBook for long periods of time. …

Downfall of a great computer
I bought two MacBooks, mine a late 2006 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo bought new from the apple store and a second one for my mother for a Chr I bought two MacBooks, mine a late 2006 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo bought new from the apple store and a second one for my mother for a Christmas gift. Hers was a 2007 model with the same specs. They have both been great computers other than the batteries. First my mother's battery started to bulge. It had gotten so bad by the time she told me about it that it ruined the track pad button and it had to be replaced along with the battery. I replaced hers with a NewerTech aftermarket battery primarily because the Apple OEM battery was on backorder at the time. I purchased a replacement top case from eBay and replaced it myself.
Not long after this mine started to swell also so I replaced it with a genuine Apple part and did so before it had a chance to damage the computer. It is important to note that both batteries still held a great charge when they failed from swelling. A couple of years go by and my mom's NewerTech battery started to swell just like the factory battery did. I ordered another replacement from the Apple store and it is doing fine. Now my battery which appears fine says "Service Battery" and discharges at a rapid pace (about 45 minutes per charge). I don't know what the problem is with these batteries but there is definitely a problem. I purchased a new MacBook Pro with Retina display earlier this week. I don't know what I will do about the MacBook battery but I suppose I will continue to use it until it swells or dies. …

Is the new macbook pro battery replaceable? I know it's not supposed to be user replaceable but who can? How much does it cost?
- Asked by Tom V from Crystal River

I did my own research and found that the battery must be replaced at an Apple store or reseller. Pr I did my own research and found that the battery must be replaced at an Apple store or reseller. Probably because there is no easy consumer access and there is better access to recycling. I'm not sure about the reason. The cost is $129 at this time. …

I recently ordered a replacement MacBook Rechargeable Battery so can hopefully help here.
The battery I ordered was a "MacBook Battery (White)" Model A1185 and the Apple product code was MA561G/A. So it does indeed seem to match the product you are asking about.
