Rating: 5/5 Great Upgrade! March 25, 2016 Upgraded my MacBook Pro with ram, battery, and an SSD. It has been sluggish for quite some time. Now it is very responsive and acts like it did when I purchased it new. The videos and how-to's made this upgrade very easy. Glad that I found MacSales & OWC.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect replacement for my 5+ years old battery December 28, 2015 The trackpad on my late '08 MBP was giving trouble & I traced the trouble to a swollen 5 year old battery, which was otherwise ok! believe it or not.The new battery arrived as promised & fitted perfectly. My MBP is still fighting fit.

Rating: 4/5 Don't get the *open box* version August 6, 2015 I originally ordered this open box, since it saved me about 20%. However neither the first one nor the second one OWC sent as a replacement worked in my late 2008 MBP. System profiler could see the battery, but it wouldn't charge. I even had the 2nd one tested at a local Apple dealer since it seemed weird to get 2 defective batteries in a row. In addition, the whole process took a few weeks because OWC won't cross ship replacement open box items. After receiving the 2nd defective open box battery, I decided to return it for refund and instead buy the same item new. Minus 1 star for the hassle, but I am happy with the new battery I eventually received. I get about 4 to 5 hours now per charge instead of 1 on the old one.

Rating: 5/5 No doubt a great third party battery to replace my original's April 23, 2013 Greeting from Singapore. The battery arrived my doorstep as predicted. Kudos. Eagerly tried it out and without any disappointment it operates without any fault. I can say that third party battery works like the original's.

Rating: 5/5 Great battery April 3, 2013 I haven't used this battery for very long, but so far it's working like a dream. I had a swollen macbook pro battery and didn't realize it. I eventually figured it out when my trackpad quit working and back cover wouldn't close. I can finally click my trackpad again. It might be my imagination, but it seems like my computer is running cooler and faster.
