Rating: 5/5 Quality battery; easy install; fixed problems. September 22, 2020 My 2011 MacBook Pro (still using the original Apple battery, amazingly) would get down to 24% charge and abruptly quit with no warning. First I tried to recalibrate the battery, and after that, the MBP would get down to about 12% power before suddenly dying. Not good enough! So I decided to replace the battery, although I wasn't sure that this would fix the issue.

The new battery actually arrived a day earlier than scheduled. It appeared to be a very high quality unit. OWC supplies excellent instructions for doing the replacement and the easy repair was completed in under 30 minutes using only the supplied tools, Then the charge and recalibration sequence was performed, and I also reset the PMC.

Now my battery gets down to 5% and the notification pops up in the upper right screen corner, just as one would expect. The battery actually will go down to an indicated 1% and the machine then will quit. Everything is working as expected and I am very happy that I replaced the battery. It's probably a good move for anyone who is having similar problems.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent Product, Tools and Instructions! August 24, 2020 The battery in my mid-2012 MacBook Pro had become so swollen that I couldn't use my trackpad and I had to tap 2-3 times to get my space bar to respond. I knew the battery was on its last legs, making my MBP's case bulge and performance erratic. The replacement arrived quickly from OWC, well-packaged with the necessary tools and clearcut instructions. I felt confident opening my MBP, removing the swollen old battery and replacing it with the new one from OWC. After everything fit perfectly back into the case, restoring the use of my trackpad and spacebar and making my MBP feel and run like new. When it comes to the internals and accessories for my Mac, I prefer OWC!

Rating: 5/5 High Quality, East to install August 20, 2020 During a hard drive swap I noticed the battery on my mid 2012 macbook pro was swollen. I didn't want to chance it given its age. In a few days, I had this new battery and it dropped right in. It's working great so far and I feel safer with the old one replaced. Performs well. OWC has been my go to for upgrades for years for good reason. Their products fit right, work right, and are of high quality. Happy with this easy purchase.

Reviewer: AlanBrownstein Location: Los Angeles, CA Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: less than a month
Rating: 5/5 Quality Battery, Exceeded Expectations August 1, 2020 After researching the various replacement batteries available for my 13" Early 2011 MBP, I decided to go with the NuPower battery, based largely on my prior positive experiences with NewerTech products. Glad I did. The battery swap was easy, took maybe 20 minutes, and was a perfect fit. After installing, and completing the recommended battery calibration procedure, I'm now getting approx. 5 hours of run time on the new battery. By comparison, the aging stock battery was getting only about 90 minutes with the same amount of use. We'll see how this new battery holds up over time, but so far so good. I also liked that the NuPower battery comes supplied with the two screwdrivers needed for the installation, a small Phillips driver to remove the bottom case screws and a Tri-Lobe driver to remove the two screws which retain the battery to the case. However, I found the supplied Phillips driver was a poor fit for the tiny case screws and therefore a little difficult to work with. Not a big deal as I had a better quality small Phillips driver on hand that easily did the job.

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: 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 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.
