Rating: 5/5 The best choice for a new battery September 7, 2015 Best battery to get when replacing the original Apple battery in your laptop. Good run time and it keeps the maximum health after multiple recharges. Very good color match for my Black MacBook.

Rating: 4/5 This battery has held up well January 13, 2015 This battery has been in use for at least two years and is finally starting to show its age, but still works. The battery has been cycled fully many times and still working. It doesn't last quite as long on a charge, but this nine year old Macbook from 2007 is still working well despite its hard life of everyday use.

It was a quality and lower cost replacement to the Apple battery.

Rating: 5/5 Can't beat the price! December 4, 2014 I was hesitant to buy a non-Apple battery, but my "mac certified guru" brother referred me to OWC. I figured if he trusted OWC, I can. Received the battery quickly...it fits and works great!

Rating: 5/5 NuPower for MacBook 13.3 laptop work great November 18, 2014 This is a high quality product to match that of Apple. I received it partially charged. It was easy to install and is a good match with fit and finish. I expect to gain several more years out of my reliable MacBook.

Rating: 5/5 Even better than the "real" thing. October 15, 2014 As a longtime mac user and official Apple hardware devotee, I was skeptical of buying a third party battery, but I trust OWC from my many solid experiences with their hard drives, so I thought I'd give it a shot.

Wow.

Not only does the battery look perfect, but I swear it's slightly lighter weight than the Apple battery I replaced, and it really does hold more of a charge that my old one ever did. I could not be more pleased.

Rating: 5/5 works great and fits perfectly September 23, 2014 I ordered this because I discovered that my original Macbook battery was swollen. I researched a lot of replacement batteries, but eventually went with OWC because they had a good reputation. The battery was more expensive, but I had piece of mind that it would fit and be exactly what I was looking for. The battery fits perfectly, immediately was recognized by my Macbook and holds a pretty good charge.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent product! September 1, 2014 Fits perfectly and has great stamina (lasts for about 6 hours with just wi-fi and internet usage). I bought this because I have an old MacBook Black, and the original battery pack inflated and started to last for 30 minutes top. The only thing that I don't like is that my laptop's finish looks old, and the battery looks brand new... Hehehehe!

I love this!

Rating: 5/5 Good product, good price June 23, 2014 A new battery for a very old MacBook helped bring an old machine back to life. This battery works well and the price is very reasonable. It's worth the cost to keep an old MacBook running for a few more years.

Rating: 5/5 Better replacement for the OEM Macbook battery June 21, 2014 I tried an after market battery in my 2007 Macbook, which lasted only 148 cycles. I expect the battery from Other World Computing to be high quality because everything I have purchased from OWC has been great.
