Rating: 4/5 Battery Works Well and Holds Charge July 3, 2018 This product was purchased because the battery life of the original was down to nothing. Installation was easier than I made it out to be with the inclusion of the required screw drivers. Time will tell if this battery develops a memory or not.

Rating: 5/5 MacBook Pro back to life April 11, 2018 Do not know if a battery can make a computer run faster, but since installing this battery (an easy task), my MacBook Pro seems to be running faster. It does seem to heat up a little more, but not bad. I expected a longer life after charging, but it does last longer than the original. I followed all instructions given in the video. My old battery was down to 2-3 hours at best. This new battery seems to last about 5-6 hours. I was wishing for more time. Maybe it is because my MacBook Pro is a mid-2012. It is aging somewhat. But, my MacBook Pro is now back to life and feels almost new.

I will continue to replace my Mac Pro battery with this item, for as long as I keep my laptop. This battery is a perfect replacement and is highly recommended.

Rating: 5/5 Easy to install and works like a charm February 7, 2018 Once you get over the calibration process which takes a day or so, this battery gives my laptop power it hasn't had in a long time since it is a 2011 MBP.

Rating: 5/5 Great replacement battery for worn originals January 26, 2018 My nephew replaced the run down battery in his mid-2012, non-retina 13" MBP, as part of an upgrade comprising the RAM, battery and hard drive. The original battery gave him barely 2 hours of time, while with this new one he is back up to about 6.5 hours. Big improvement!! Simple replacement procedure.

Rating: 5/5 Like New! December 17, 2017 My 2010 MacBook Pro was ready for the trash heap. I found out it was only worth $75. I'll combine 3 reviews in one. From OWC I got a new battery, maxed out the memory and added a SSD drive. The Mac now is faster than when I got it new. No reason to buy a new one. Need it for business, so very happy to have it running so well. Thanks OWC...again!

Rating: 4/5 Had an issue, but quickly fixed! November 21, 2017 The first replacement battery I received failed after following the conditioning process described in the very helpful "how to" video on the site. It wouldn't charge once it was depleted. MacSales response was fast and efficient. They sent me a replacement right away and I was very happy with the service. The new battery works great!

Rating: 5/5 Early 2011 13" MBP back to new :-) November 19, 2017 My Early 2011 MBP has been unable to hold a charge for long and it seemed like any CPU intensive use made it chew through the original Apple battery. I tried the usual SMC and PRAM reset avenues to no avail. I decided to buy this battery after reading on several Mac forums that this website had the preferred batteries for Macs.

It has made a world of difference in the amount of usage I can get out of my Mac now. The battery even comes with a screwdriver for both the bottom case cover plus the tri-point screws that hold the battery in. Coupled with the informative videos found here on OWC, it was a simple repair.

I also added more memory, I went from the original 4GB to 8GB of memory. I also upgraded to a 525GB SSD and I can honestly say this is a fast, new machine again! These MBP computers aren't cheap to purchase when new, so upgrading/repairing is desirable and OWC makes the process easy. For around $300 all in (RAM, SSD, Battery), I have a better than new MBP. Super!

Rating: 5/5 MacSales... more like MacSavers... September 13, 2017 I bought this to replace the original battery which had swollen in my 2011 13" MacBook Pro. The battery arrived in perfect condition, is a splitting image of the original battery and is very good quality. The product comes with the two screwdrivers you'll need to install it. Their free instructional videos are very helpful and made the process easy for a beginner. With the battery successfully installed and calibrated, it's as if nothing happened to it. Nothing bad to say about my transaction or the product at all!

Reviewer: newworldman Location: California Age: 55-65 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Great support and product September 5, 2017 I was very skeptical due to the fact I waited too long with Apple so I had an obsolete Macbook Pro ( 13" mid 2009 ) with two returned purchases of failed batteries from Amazon and a local repair shop . I really thought my computer was doomed but after more serious searching into different sources I found OWC Macsales . It's been a month now and this battery is working great so my computer thanks you ( OWC ) from the bottom of it's cpu !!! By the way the Apple hardware test is obsolete and also other 3rd party software rely on this to deliver their battery report which are false positives. The proof is in the batteries functioning still after a month 61/2 hrs. of internet browsing which is very good

Rating: 5/5 Excellent Battery! September 4, 2017 This battery has been great. It arrived on time and after about 1-2 days of conditioning, it works like a charm. I went from having to be tethered to a wall wherever I went to being able to have about 1-3 days worth of battery life wherever I go. I would highly recommend this product. The install is SUPER easy. My only suggestion is to make sure you follow the conditioning guidelines when you first install your battery.

Rating: 5/5 Great Battery August 13, 2017 My previous battery replacement from another site was terrible and would die rather fast, often times when it was only had 30%. I had to keep it plugged into a power source at all times, or it would die even if I wasn't using it, which was infuriating.

Now, I no longer have that problem. This battery holds its charge for days, and I can finally move around the house without having to plug it in. I am able to not touch my laptop for days, and then come back and it will still have juice. Often times, it only reduces by 1% on standby. Overall, it is a really great battery at a really great price. I am glad I made the decision to buy it. I have also replaced my hard drive with an SSD, and upgraded my RAM through this site, and I am pleased every time.

Rating: 4/5 Great, but I contributed to its deterioration August 3, 2017 Purchased in Sep 2015 after my original MacBook Pro 13inch Mid- 2010 Laptop's condition notified me to replace the battery. Newertech's battery worked well since then, but I naively tend to leave my laptop plugged in and only occasionally run on battery. This is a mistake because now my 2yr old battery has swollen and restricted the travel of my trackpad so that I can no longer click and drag items. I have the 'tap to click' option activated in the Trackpad system preference of the time being. I will order a new replacement battery soon and this time run my machine from the battery more often than not.

Rating: 5/5 So far a quality battery July 27, 2017 After reading many reviews and searching the Internet about batteries I decided to go with macsales nupower battery. I'm giving it 5 stars at this moment. It shipped same day. I paid for FedEx home delivery which took 3-4 days I believe. The battery is easy to install and if you don't know there are instructional videos on their website. I haven't put it through a heavy work load but it holds a charge just fine. I get a few hours of constant YouTube and web surfing. In sleep mode the Mac will be good overnight and well into the next day. The price was a little bit steep for me but the peace of mind is worth it so far. Time will tell wheather it holds up. Thanks

Rating: 4/5 Nice Upgrade! July 17, 2017 I purchase the battery for a 2009 MacBook Pro. The original battery had been charged and discharged about 1,700 times. It had a difficult time holding a charge, and only rated at about 70% of new capacity, per the Battery Plus App.

The installation instructions were very clear, and the replacement battery included the special screwdrivers to remove the battery hold-down screws.

The new battery tests out as having about 110% of the capacity of the original battery. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.

Rating: 5/5 Great Replacement Battery July 9, 2017 My MacBook Pro (mid 2009) needed a replacement battery, so I placed my first order with OWC and hoping for the best. The battery arrived in just a few days and was obviously brand-new factory fresh. It cane with clear instruction for replacing, but better yet, the package also contained two screwdrivers necessary to complete the job. The whole replacement took about 10 minutes. My Mac fired right up and after calibrating the battery, it has been running like a champ, maintaining a charge for about 7-8 hours. The online installation videos are very helpful, too. OWC is my new go-to MacBook replacement source.
