Essential but expensive extra for a travelling Mac

  • Summary: This is a typically elegant Apple take on a standard part. This thin, light weight battery has LED lights showing the charging status even though the Mac OS also has a very informative indicator of charging time remaining on the top right menu bar. It locks on with a coin or strong finger nail slot twist by a quarter turn. Don't leave home without a fully charged spare battery even though in heavy use I get about 3 hours.

  • Summary: I bought this product,charged it a couple of times,let it go flat while the computer was in sleep mode only to try and start charging it again but to no result. Took it to a retailer who spotted something strange with the battery,then proceeded to tell me it was fake. If you ask my advice-DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!

Never pay double!

  • Summary: Bought this after months of surviving with my Macbook always plugged in because I thought the Apple prices for a replacement battery were just too steep. Stumbled across this battery for half price, and after reading all the positive reviews I took the plunge. Swiftly delivered and well packaged, I'm pretty sure the battery is a genuine Apple product, came brand new and sealed with no cycles and I'm really happy with it!

  • Summary: Battery arrived in good condition - clearly brand new and with protective cover on. The battery was about 75% charged, which is nice. Shows 1 cycle and 98% health. Appears to be a real Apple battery, too.

long-lasting battery worth the price over cheaper substitutes

  • Summary: I considered buying a cheaper "no brand" battery at 1/3 the price of this one but after reading the reviews I thought I wouldn't be saving anything in the long run. I bought my Macbook in April 2007 so the laptop is nearly 5 years old, the original battery was showing 734 cycles and holding 35-50% of the original charge capacity. After buying a genuine apple battery, I used it the minute it arrived and charged completely up to 100% design capacity!

Avoid

  • Summary: This product really doesn't look like the real thing. Very worried that this is dispatched by amazon, gives the product a level of trust it just shouldn't have!

NOT!! Genuine Apple product!

Graham, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: After my Macbook battery dying, I was looking at universal batteries that were cheaper, although they didn't seem to fit correctly when inserted or lasted as long. I felt by buying this I would get a Genuine Apple product for half the price, but it seems that it is not. It looks identical in every way apart from the little button that you push to check its status. I bought this, which I thought at first it was working amazingly.
