Rating: 5/5 Exact fit March 9, 2017 The Mac Pro battery from MacSales.com was an exact fit for my mac book pro and was so easy to install. I would recommend shopping here for all your mac needs. I have purchased memory before from MacSales and I am happy to say their prices and delivery were excellent. Very helpful tutorials if you need help on installations.

Rating: 5/5 Back in action! February 24, 2017 TL;DR - After power cycling the battery a 5-6 times it feels a bit better than new! Back to 5-6 hour service intervals of heavy use. Easy to install if you are comfie opening up your computer. Buy now!

So my battery life was that of a PC, 2-4 hours if I was lucky. The battery bar was also telling me to "replace battery soon", and I was tired of showing up to a meeting and having my laptop shut down when I needed it most.

To breath new life into my 2011 13" macbook pro, I picked this battery up. I was so stoked on the performance. I mean it's an older computer so it lacks the battery life of the newer computers, BUT I love this because it's back to how it was from the factory. I would gauge it to have 5-6 hour battery life from a full charge with heavy use. I'm sure I would see more life if I was running and doing few things.

Tip: Power cycle the batter as many times as you can when you first install. Meaning you should chard it to max, then drain till it shuts down, and then charge to max again, repeat etc. This will help "train" your battery as to what is max and what is min power levels. I noticed a bit of an increase (5-10%) in battery life after my 4th of 5th cycle.

Install: This was a piece a cake, but then again I am really comfortable opening up the computer.

Rating: 5/5 Upgrade to new battery made simple!! February 12, 2017 After struggling with the low battery life of my 2009 Macbook pro for years, and finally getting an error message on my machine that I had to "service the battery", I started doing some research into how difficult it was to replace the battery. I found MacSales website, and the videos were very thorough and walked you through every step. I thought "looks easy, I can do this", so decided to order the battery and give it a try. Glad I did. Battery arrived and I pulled up the video (different machine of course) and followed the steps. It couldn't have been easier, and the battery fit perfectly. Now I have a fully functioning MacBook again that I can unplug and actually use as a laptop. The battery lasts as long as it did when the Macbook was new. Great experience!

Rating: 5/5 Nice battery replacement for my Macbook Pro January 29, 2017 I was very pleased with this battery. The battery came in a nice box with two screwdrivers included, one for removing the back of the mac book and the other for the tri winged screws holding the battery in place. A card inside had a link to instructions and video guides for installing and calibrating the battery with the Macbook power manager. The directions were clear and easy to follow.

Rating: 5/5 NewerTech replacement battery gives 2010 MackBook Pro new life January 26, 2017 I recently replaced the battery in my daughter’s mid-2010 13 inch MacBook Pro7,1. The original battery died by swelling and spreading the MacBook Pro case, almost popping out the track pad. I purchased this MacBook Pro as a high school graduation gift. She carried it through college and, now that she is starting her professional career, she needs a dependable computer but cannot afford to buy a replacement. A year before I had addressed the lagging performance of the Core 2 Duo based model by replacing the 320 GB 5400 rpm HD with an OWC 480 GB SSD and doubling the RAM to 8 GB. Not wanting to abandon this investment in a now-snappy computer, I set out to replace the battery. It turns out that it was an easy fix when following OWC’s battery installation video. It is easy, that is, given the right tools to remove the tri-lobe screws holding in the battery. The NewerTech 65 watt-hour NuPower Battery comes with those tools – a tri-lobe screwdriver for the battery screws, and a Phillips screwdriver for the MacBook Pro’s case screws. I was able to pop the track pad back into the case and gently adjust the metal strips that support it. I recalibrated the battery charge indicator per the OWC battery replacement video. The 2010 MacBook Pro now has new life with SSD snappy response and new battery charge holding performance.

Rating: 5/5 Amazingly executed! January 17, 2017 Battery fitted perfecltly. Instructions were simple and easy, there are some youtube video on how to do it. There are even special screwdrivers included for the special types of screws that the MacBook Pro has. It is a bit pricier than other options found online, but MacSales.com has never disapointed throughout the years. If you want a headache free solution, get it here! In terms for durability, I have hadn't had this battery for long, so I cannot vouch for it, but I am confident that it will last for a long time.

Rating: 5/5 Easy install January 17, 2017 As usual OWC upgrades are well supported with on line video and the tools to accomplish the task. The battery replacement was easy to do and took very little time. The power management calibration takes some time but the install is very short. Battery life is quite good so far. I highly recommend OWC as the source for mac upgrades.

Rating: 5/5 7+ yo MacBook Pro has a new life December 28, 2016 Reviews, installation video and price were the primary factors in choosing the NewerTech NuPower battery. All my expectations were met. The DIY install video gave me the confidence I was capable of doing this. I followed the instructions and advice from the video - it was not difficult. So far the battery state of charge and discharge rate (when unplugged) has been on par with initial performance of the original battery. Fingers crossed I'll get another several years out of my MacBook Pro!

Overall, I am VERY SATISFIED and have already recommended to a couple of friends this is the way to go...rather than purchasing a new computer.

After installation, the battery was a substantial improvement over what we had. I've not tried to compare usage times (before and after) but anecdotal stories indicate it's "much better".

Rating: 5/5 Fantastic service, great products! December 2, 2016 I have ordered numerous items from OWC over the years. This latest order was for a battery for my mid-2010 13" MacBook Pro. The battery to be replaced was a similar battery ordered many years ago from OWC. This one, now nearing the end of its useful life, has served me well and as advertised.

That is a quick review of the product - the real story is the customer service behind the product. I received a call from UPS on November 30th saying that my package was not able to be delivered as I was no longer at the address listed on the package (my old address where the original replacement was shipped to many years ago).

I called OWC and spoke to customer service representative Jason (12/01/16) and explained what had happened. He promptly called UPS to see if they could deliver to my correct address but UPS had already begun returning the battery to OWC.

Jason then told me that he would send me another battery. Not only did he ship another battery to me but he did it priority overnight and I received it mid morning on the 2nd. I am still blown away by the customer service which I received, as this type of help is found in fewer and fewer companies by even fewer employees. I highly recommend, without reservation, OWC, Jason, and the rest of the employees of this fine company. Thanks again, RIL

Rating: 5/5 Simple and easy November 28, 2016 Great product! The install is easy, if you have ever opened your computer before. If not, there are videos and directions, AND tools included in the package. Really can't make it easier. The battery itself, so far, has been great. I say so far because it has only been a month. The original battery lasted 5 years with heavy use, so hopefully this one will outlive the life of the computer.

Reviewer: MrSerge Location: Philadelphia, PA Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: over 6 months
Rating: 5/5 Good product, very easy to install. November 27, 2016 This is a good product. What I liked the most, and it's something that's not mentioned in the product details, is the fact that the battery comes with a set of 2 screwdrivers needed for the installation - it is a big plus. Video of the installation is easy to follow, and the installation took me less than 5 minutes to complete.

Now, there's a downside, and it's the fact that once installed, the battery needs to be calibrated, and it takes hours! need to charge and discharge the battery completely, and there are a few steps needed to do it - all explained in the video but still, a little cumbersome.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the product.

Rating: 5/5 Easy even for the ham-fisted November 20, 2016 This was such a simple replacement, I wonder why I ever took my Mac PowerBook to the hipster geniuses at the Apple Store the first time. I am sure that the unhip people without the back doing the actual repair. Evidently, the batteries expand over time and cause the trackpad to fail. So Apple made them easy to change. OWC made it all the easier with good product selection and repair videos.
