Reviewer: ronckk Location: Brunei Age: 25-34 Experience Level: Home User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Easy installation! September 9, 2018 My original MacBook Air Mid 2011 had a terrible battery span. I was tempted to use this as an excuse to get myself an upgrade for my MacBook but decided to try replacing the battery just to see how it goes since the overall condition of my MacBook Air is still pretty decent besides it being old. Definitely did not regret at all cause right now it's holding a 101% charge. Installation of battery was pretty straight forward given the tools were supplied with it. I actually asked my friend to hand carry this battery for me from the US back to Asia and didn't get any issues or questions from any airlines.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect! August 15, 2018 I wasn’t sure if I should go with a cheaper battery on eBay or order this NuPower battery and went ahead and ordered it. The tutorial on the website makes it super easy to install and gives you confidence when it comes to opening up your MacBook and doing the repair yourself. The battery works perfectly and the shipping was very quick! Would recommend 100%!

Rating: 5/5 Took 15 minutes to install July 29, 2018 Hi, Whenever I traveled which is not that often, my MacBook was dead upon arrival and had zero charge left. I would need to plug it in and wait hours before using it. I finally replaced the battery using my trust source OWC and for $79.00 I now have a 100% charge without the dreaded "Replace or repair Battery" notification. It literally took 15 minutes to install and re-calibrate using OWC's videos and now when I arrive somewhere my battery % is 90% or better and I can use it instantly. Thank you OWC - so much better to maintain something rather than replace.

Rating: 5/5 Quality product July 20, 2018 This battery is a quality replacement for the original Apple battery. It fit just as it should, and takes and holds a good charge. I first bought a cheap battery from another source, and it came with a bulging cell and plastic wrap coverings for the battery cells. The back wouldn't even click into place. This is a quality battery. Thank you.

Reviewer: Glorious1 Location: Colorado
Rating: 5/5 Installed fine, works fine February 26, 2018 I replaced the battery in my wife's 2012 MB Air with this product. It's great that they provide the necessary tools. I didn't have any trouble with them that a few other's reported, but I was careful to seat them properly before rotating them. The battery fit well, and instructions were good. Be sure to do the calibration process after (the instructions have a link to the process on their website). I can't comment on the electrical functionality, as I'm not measuring anything and she hasn't tested the battery life.

Rating: 5/5 MacBook Air Battery December 15, 2017 I purchased a replacement battery for my Mid 2013 13" MacBook Air. It was on sale for $79.00 for Black Friday. It took me less than 15 minutes to replace it. I went on line and performed the conditioning recommended and the battery is great! I plan on replacing the Battery in my 2010 15" MacBook Pro next year and will purchase a NuPower Battery from OWC!

Rating: 5/5 Battery Life Back to New December 14, 2017 I'm very happy with the new battery for my MacBook Air. It came with tools to get the job done, and excellent instructions including an on-line video. Install was quick and easy. Calibration of the battery took a while but that's because the new battery has lots of capacity.

Only place I could suggest for improvement would be shipping method (to Canada). Would have preferred an option to ship via USPS as it would have been half the cost to ship and less expensive clearing customs.

Thanks!

Rating: 5/5 Easy to install, as good as original October 4, 2017 This was easy to install in my four+ year old MacBookAir6,2. I removed the cover, disconnected and pulled out the old battery, and installed the new one in less than 10 minutes. Getting the tiny cover screws back in was easier using plastic tweezers (not included) to align the screw first.

My Air is now back to 100% battery health (7360 mAh, slightly more than the original 7270 mAh) and it's noticeably cooler when charging, too.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect match for my Macbook Air August 17, 2017 I ordered this replacement battery from MacSales.com, it arrived well packaged and in a timely manner. The battery kit included the two small tools (Phillips and Torx) needed to remove the case and the battery. From there, it was as simple as following the instructions on the website to remove the outer case screws and then the battery screws to install. I did follow the 'new battery' break in procedures outlined on the instructional video, so I'm looking forward to a long life from this replacement battery.

Rating: 5/5 Better than original August 17, 2017 Original batter was only lasting a few minutes and was super unreliable. I ordered this and with the help of the install videos I was able to have the new battery in and working within half an hourish? Very easy to install and the support was great. The new battery is better than when I originally got my MacBook and when fully charged my battery app says it's 105% of original.

Rating: 5/5 New Life for an Old MacBook Air June 19, 2017 This new battery brought new life to my six year old MacBook Air. The kit included the two screw drivers necessary to install the battery so I didn't have to search for my tools. I think it took me less then ten minutes to complete the install. Once the battery was calibrated, it was like a new machine with good battery life.
