Rating: 4/5 Good Product November 1, 2018 If you're looking to save some money on a new battery compared to bringing it into the Apple store and having to pay about $130 to install a battery you can do yourself, this is an easy alternative. I was given a refurbished Macbook Pro 13 inch mid 2009 and everything worked fine but the battery would drain really fast after only an hour of usage. First, I contacted an Apple expert online to see if the closest store to me had the battery I needed available. Apparently they discontinued making the 2009 battery models. Then, I researched for a good replacement battery that was closest to the original and I found this. OWC was the highest rated. I read all the reviews--good and bad. I figured I'd try it for myself.

Delivery arrived a day before expected and even included the tools needed to take out the screws from the backing. The how-to video was straight to the point and made installation extremely easy, took me about 10 mins. Be careful with unscrewing the backing because the materials of the screwdrivers wears off easily. I followed the directions exactly and calibrated it just how the video advised.

**After 2 weeks of light-medium usage my battery lasts about 2-3 1/2 hours after a complete charge. Others have claimed theirs would last 6-7 hours so I expected more. Perhaps the reason mine hasn't been lasting to the same extent is because I have an older model? I use my laptop mainly for schoolwork (research, typing essays) and although I get some good time out of it, I still have to remain close to an outlet.

TLDR- Save Money, Delivers as expected, Easy installation (MAKE SURE TO WATCH THE VIDEO + CALIBRATE), but results might be dependent on year/model of Macbook and what you use it for.

Rating: 5/5 Great instructions, works perfectly! October 1, 2018 I didn't realize my MacBook Pro battery was having a problem until I couldn't click the trackpad anymore - the old battery was swollen. I had settings that only required me to touch the trackpad, not press it so I had not noticed until I needed to change a setting. Before ordering, I watched the installation video to make sure I was comfortable with the process. It was exactly like the video depicted and the calibration instructions were also easy. Thank you for saving my MacBook Pro!

Rating: 5/5 Excellent product and service! September 30, 2018 I replaced my 13" late 2011 MacBook Pro's battery with this NewerTech battery cause my macbook stopped operating without it being plugged in with the magsafe. I'm from the Philippines and the item arrived sooner than I expected. It arrived around 3-4 days after I ordered it. Customer service was helpful as well cause they were answering my questions pretty fast. It was pretty easy to install as they've already included the tools that you need for the installation. Together with the installation video, it was a piece of cake to do. I'm now using the new battery and so far so good! It's almost as if I have a new macbook pro. More than satisfied.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent Replacement Battery September 6, 2018 I'd been using my 10-year old Macbook Pro solely with the charging cable for the last few years and finally decided to get a new battery and this one installed in minutes and now I can use my laptop for hours without needing to recharge. Thanks for including the tools necessary to complete the disassembly and install, it's been installed for only a few weeks so far, but there have been no issues at all.

Rating: 5/5 OWC Customer Service is excellent! September 3, 2018 I originally purchased an OWC battery that must've been defective. It only held a charge for about an hour despite several attempts at "conditioning" it. I originally wrote a review describing my disappointing experience and was soon contacted by OWC regarding my comments. James from customer service reached out to me and really went above and beyond to ensure that I wasn't left with a bad experience. He quickly issued a replacement battery and was very thorough and professional in communicating with me through the process. My new battery regularly lasts 2-4 hours and now my older 2011 MacBook Pro runs like a top. Thank you OWC and James C!

Rating: 5/5 Defective but replaced August 12, 2018 Another very happy customer! I noticed lately some problems with the battery purchased last year, and after troubleshooting and tested by Apple I found that was a problem with my battery. I contact MacSales for support and I had a great surprise to get a replacement for my battery even if I was off warranty by few weeks. I would recommend MacSales for their support and follow up with their customers. Great job guys!

I had originally ordered the wrong battery and they were honest about refunding my money once the returned battery was received. I received my refund in a few days purchased the new one and in a few days the correct replacement arrived. Thank you OWC!!

Rating: 5/5 So Glad These Batteries are available July 14, 2018 I love my ancient macbook pro. I don't want a new machine. One without a DCD/CD reader, one that needs more memory for programs I don't want.

I bought TWO batteries and now have about 6 years or more of life with my Mac.

Thanks OWC!

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.

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!
