Rating: 5/5 Maximum power, maximum awesome. December 15, 2014 Product is exactly as awesome as it sounds. My 2011 15" MBP feels brand new, and has longer battery life than it was originally rated for (Disclaimer: I also have an SSD now, so performance is higher too). Installation was not difficult, and the battery came with both instructions and also the tool required. I didn't expect that, and it's a boon for the customer, super awesome. I've had the battery installed for a bit more than a month now, and its performance is still great, I hope it will continue to power my laptop for the next few years.

Rating: 5/5 Increased battery life. November 17, 2014 The battery worked great and I did not have to restart the computer is any way to get the battery to be read properly by MacBook Pro. The battery life was also increased with new battery beyond the time specified by Apple.

Rating: 5/5 Great Service and Merchandise August 19, 2014 OWC comes through once again!!! I ordered the battery for my MacBook Pro, since the OEM battery died on me, and I felt my data and information stored on the computer was at risk. I ordered the new battery and received it within 3 days of ordering, which is a fantastic turnaround. The battery fit perfectly and I was back in business with my McBook Pro within an hour of having received the battery.

Rating: 5/5 The Best Replacement Battery for your MacBook Pro. August 16, 2014 After researching other websites, I decided to purchase the NewTech NUPower 77.5 Watt-Hour Battery from OWC for my MacBook Pro. Their website is very professional and offers everything you may need for your MAC. I took a chance and now I am glad I did. The battery worked right out of the box and holds a 5.5 to 6 hour charge. This is longer of any of my ASUS and Toshiba laptops which only gives me 2.5 hours of battery time. I am very pleased and will always buy products for my MAC from OWC.
