Rating: 5/5 My old MacBook Air could barely hold a charge February 14, 2017 My 2012 MacBook Aire would last anywhere from 1-1.5 hours per charge. I had a charger in the office and at home, sometimes carried it with me. With the new battery, I was getting battery life better than when it was new. No more carrying my charger, and I only have to plug in at night when I'm home.

Rating: 5/5 Direct replacement and perfect fit. November 8, 2016 Although this battery is made up of only 4 cells vs. the 6 cells of the original Mac battery, the 4 cells are much larger and equal the same mAh as intended. This was a direct fit for my swollen battery that managed to swell up all 6 cells, bending the keyboard upwards and swelling the bottom, which made it rock like a rocking chair, w/o all 4 rubber feet ever able to touch my desktop surface.

Took me only 5 minutes to unfasten the back, unscrew the battery from the chassis, unplug the battery and replace. Works great and was way cheaper than the deductible Apple was charging despite still being under Apple Care (will never pay for that garbage again). Would definitely recommend anyone who needs a new battery.

Rating: 5/5 Battery Works Great! May 26, 2016 It's only been 3 months but the battery is working as promised! Installation was super easy and battery came with a about half a charge which was nice. I'm a student and I get about 6-7 hours on a full charge with mostly internet and Google doc work. I still bring my charger with me just in case I want to kill time on Youtube or Netflix . Happy I took a chance with MacSales.com as it was a straightforward, inexpensive choice compared to other independent retailers and the Apple Store. It should be noted Apple's warranty on a new battery was 90 days, not 1 year like MacSales. Glad I went for it:)

Rating: 5/5 Great replacement battery for MBA 11" February 29, 2016 Ordered this replacement battery for my MBA 11" -- it has obviated the need (at least for the time being) to buy a new MacBook. Higher capacity than the OEM Apple battery, and easily installled using helpful videos on OWC website. Thanks again OWC for offering great products and solutions.
