Rating: 5/5 Worked Great July 7, 2020 Purchased this to replace the battery in a friend's 2012 MacBook Pro. No problems with installation. Appreciate the fact that the two screwdrivers needed for the installation (Philips for removing the bottom case & tri-lobe for the battery) were included, even though I didn't need them.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect Replacement Battery for mid 2012 MacBook pro July 6, 2020 The Original battery for my Mid 2012 MacBook Pro was getting to where it wasn’t lasting as long as it once had so I began doing research as to how or if it could be replaced. I cam Across OWC and they had this battery that is supposed to be an exact fit and it included the tools required to do the replacement along with a instillation video. I’m pretty tech savvy but I’ve never opened up a MacBook Pro but their instructions made it very easy. It took me about 20 minutes to do the install. I’ve had the battery for about 3 months and it’s working great! Thank you OWC for having such great instructions I will definitely use you guys again for other Mac replacement parts I may need.

Rating: 5/5 Exactly what I needed for a 2010 Macbook Pro 7.1 July 3, 2020 After owning my Macbook Pro 10 years, at about year 6 or 7, the battery status would say "Replace soon". After another year or so it said "Replace now". The battery went from lasted 8-10 hours originally, down to about 30 minutes of battery life. Very frustrating having to always keep it connected to power, but this NewerTech NuPower 65 Watt battery resolved my problem. I'm able to run my Macbook Pro the entire day off of battery power now. Just like new! Instructional videos made it easy. I highly recommend this product and this website in general.

Rating: 5/5 Good Replacement Battery July 3, 2020 My wife’s MacBook battery life had dwindled to the point where it wouldn’t last through her class at school and would say service battery and then return to normal every so often. We finally decided to purchase a replacement. After having to return a cheap Amazon battery that didn’t work we decided to spend more for a good brand. This battery has been a significant improvement so far

Rating: 4/5 Not As Good As Advertised April 19, 2020 I'm a bit disappointed by my purchase. I calibrated the battery like the instructions in the video, but still getting a poor battery life. I'm only getting about 2 hours of usage. I tested it out by typing my essay and streaming music on YouTube in the background: went from 99% to 5% in 1.5 hours.

Not sure if it's due to older Macbook (late 2011), but I was expecing at least 4-5 hours.

Response from MacSales.com, CESSM April 30, 2020 Our batteries are designed to last anywhere from 3-5 hours on a full charge, depending on use. If you are not seeing this life span, there are a few things we would want to do to see if we can get the battery working properly for you. The first thing I would recommend doing would be resetting the System Management Controller. Resetting the System Management Controller (or SMC) in a Mac can be a useful way to troubleshoot various kinds of problems that arise, typically related to power issues or issues that coincide with new hardware being installed in the computer. Detailed instructions on performing a SMC reset can be found on Apple's website here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201295 After resetting the SMC, I would also want to perform a NVRAM or PRAM reset. This can be done with the following instructions: PRAM Reset: 1) Start the machine while holding down the Option-Command-P-R keys 2) Wait until you hear the 3rd startup chime, then let go of the keys and let the machine boot up. Lastly, we would want to go through a proper conditioning cycle, to help the battery reach its maximum lifespan. This process will help calibrate the battery and extend the full charge life. You can find this process with detailed instructions on our Battery Conditioning Guide: https://eshop.macsales.com/Tech/manuals/newertech/batteries/batteryconditioning_r1w.pdf If these steps fail to work in getting your battery performing up to specs, please let me know and we can look into this issue further for you.

Rating: 5/5 Macbook Pro Mid 2012 March 29, 2020 The battery is fantastic, I love that there is a video by OWC that guides you on the replacement of the battery & calibration to make sure it reflects the right amount of charge left. I would recommend this purchase to anybody looking to do DIY battery replacement. Just be sure to check out the compatibility for your macbook. It's been 2 weeks now & it's perfect, my macbook pro feels new!

Rating: 5/5 New Life for my Refurbished MacBook Pro June 26, 2019 True Story: I did not take care of my last MacBook Pro Battery. Having purchased this battery from OWC for my 2009 MacBook Pro Laptop, I knew the battery would be a game changer for my 2012 MacBook Pro. Wow. What a game changer it has been! I also upgraded the internal drive from HDD to SSD, and now my 2012 Laptop hums, functions 3 times longer than before, and handles multiple drive and memory intensive apps without so much as a stutter, much less software crashes. This battery is everything it promises it will be and more. I cannot recommend it enough. It has helped transform my two MacBook Pro laptops into the work horses they were originally built to be. These batteries are so worthwhile as an upgrade, they provide the incentive to take care of them daily! Thanks OWC, yet again!

Rating: 5/5 New life for an old MacBook December 19, 2018 My mid-2012 MacBook Pro had been giving me the "Service Battery" warning for a year and a half. When I took it to the Apple Store, they could only offer to replace it, which would cost about $50 more than this product and require me to ship out my laptop for a few days.

I'd already replaced my failing hard drive with an SSD from OWC (which has been great!) so I knew that this site provides high quality parts. The installation was easy, and though the calibration process (which is the same for any replacement battery) was a bit of a pain, the new battery has almost doubled my battery life. I hope it continues to hold capacity for another few years!

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 Easy to install October 2, 2018 I needed a new battery since the factory battery was swelling and interfering with the track pad. No issues with the installation of this replacement. Came with the necessary tools to install the new battery. It was a perfect fit. Just remember to follow the battery calibration instructions. Beats paying for a new battery from the Apple Store.

Long term durability is yet to be determined but so far so good.

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.

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!
