Rating: 5/5 Great battery with lots of power July 7, 2016 The battery was manufactured only a couple of months prior to purchase, so it was still fresh and arrived almost fully charged. After charging to full capacity and discharging-- over 5 cycles now, this battery still exceeds the design capacity of 5600 mAh. It is a great purchase for my 2006 MacBook Pro and I would purchase this battery again.

Rating: 5/5 OWC battery April 8, 2016 I ordered a battery for my old mac pro. The battery looked like the old mac battery and fit in perfectly. The OWC battery is working fine and I hope to get a few years out of it. The shipping speed was great and so far I cant say enough about my shopping experience. A friend told me about this company and he recommended this company highly to me. OWC keep up the good work and customer service.

Rating: 5/5 OWC is best choice for battery replacement December 22, 2015 This battery was probably better than the original but I wouldn't know. I purchased this used MacBook Pro on eBay and soon discovered the battery was near death. The new OWC battery was a perfect fit and a perfect solution to give my Old Mac new life. You can buy with confidence at OWC because they give you all the information you need to make the right choice. They ship quickly and stand behind everything they sell. I could buy a cheaper battery on eBay but it could be a roll of the dice. With OWC I take no chances and there's absolutely no risk. So if you need a new battery, always remember OWC is your best choice! OWC is the place to see!

Rating: 3/5 Good but not magical September 25, 2015 One of the few choices in batteries for older MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo / non-unibody. These batteries are fine, but I feel like they should provide more than a couple hours worth of power than they do. I have owned many over the years, and have never had a problem. Perhaps my perspective is skewed by how long modern laptop batteries seem to last.

Rating: 4/5 Good battery, great price March 8, 2015 A very good (and much cheaper) replacement to my OEM MacBook Pro battery. Holds a similar level of charge as the OEM battery and no major issues so far. The finish color is spot on, but the texture is a little off. The battery level check button also isn't quite as nice as the OEM button, but still does its job. The flash rate of the light when the button is pressed and the battery is empty is also very slow - slow enough you might mistake it for just nearly empty if you don't sit and watch. I also had one issue I'd never encountered before: with the computer asleep and transported to work on a cold day, the system had gone into hibernate and the SMC, and the battery level indicator on the battery itself, thought the battery was dead. Plugging in a charger showed the battery to be nearly full. It seems to have a higher lower limit on operational temperature than the OEM battery (temps were below freezing in the car briefly). Not a deal breaker (should travel with computer off in cold weather anyway), but something to keep in mind.

Rating: 5/5 Replacement battery for Macbook Pro December 8, 2014 I purchased by MacBook Pro several years ago (early 2008 model). The battery had been replaced once by Apple under the Applecare program, though I had not specifically requested that. For a number of months recently I had noted that my battery condition indicated that it should be replaced. I finally did so through MacSales and it is nice to see that the battery status is at 100% capacity again. The replacement was received quickly and was easily installed, of course. I'm very happy with MacSales (OWC), in their variety of products, pricing, and good customer service.

Rating: 5/5 Happy this battery for an older laptop is available. September 15, 2014 Must confess I haven't installed it yet, but am VERY glad to have it. The original battery on my MacBook Pro 15" early 2008 model is STILL working, though the length of time seems to be getting shorter. Because of the age I was concerned that a replacement might not be available when battery goes. - Want to keep the computer because it has an optical drive from which I can play instructional DVD videos demonstrating pieces and techniques for private music students.

Rating: 4/5 lasted 18 months September 9, 2014 Bought this battery in January 2013. Worked great. It came with a 1 year warranty. Now it is September 2014 and the battery is bulged. Guess I have to buy another.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Response from MacSales.com, Technical Support September 12, 2014 If you do find that a battery has started to bulge, discontinue use and remove it from your laptop. NuPower batteries are designed so that if swelling should occur, the case expansion will not damage the computer the battery resides in. Swelling of lithium ion batteries, while rare, is a natural occurrence. This applies even to batteries such as NuPower that utilize the highest quality manufacturing processes and materials. Thermal runaway can happen to any laptop battery, but that risk is increased when not providing the laptop proper airflow or by keeping the laptop plugged in all the time. We do offer a full line of laptop stands, some with active cooling, to lift that laptop off your desk and ensure proper airflow. When away from a table or desk, take care to position your laptop so you’re not cutting off essential airflow, such as resting on a pillow, blanket, or a comforter. Additionally, don’t forget to "Exercise" your battery once a month. To exercise your battery, run your computer on battery power until it shuts down or until you get a low battery warning. Then use your notebook as an acceptable method to charge/recharge your battery.

Rating: 5/5 Great customer service August 18, 2014 I am not reviewing the product as much as the customer service. After my local dealer could not help me find the battery I needed for my 2006 MacBook Pro on the phone, he suggested I come to the shop. Then he did not have the battery I needed in stock. He said he would order it for me. Three days later he called to tell me his order for it could not be fulfilled because the battery was "vintage." He referred me to your company. Your site is very easy to navigate. I was able to identify my computer and the batter I needed. Your price was $40.00 less than my local dealer had quoted. I chose the Free delivery option because I had waited so long already. What was another week? I submitted the order on Thursday evening, and the battery was in my mailbox on Saturday afternoon! I could not believe how quickly it arrived. I will continue to do business with you. BTW, the battery is just as described and works fine.
