Rating: 5/5 Always the best May 14, 2021 I have a 2011 and a 2010 MacBook Pro 17 inch. The 2010 model had a battery failure. I was able to easily purchase a new and better battery from Mac sales. I have been a customer of theirs since 2001. I will continue to be a customer of theirs for a long time.

Rating: 5/5 Made my 2010 MBP work again! August 25, 2020 My old Mid 2010 17" MacBook Pro had become pretty unusable away from mains power - it's battery would last like 15 to 20 minutes or so.

The NewerTech battery was easy to install and now I am back to getting several hours of work out of the old clunker.

For $100 this was a great investment!

Rating: 5/5 Quick and Easy repair December 4, 2019 My 17" MacBook Pro battery finally died and I checked OWC for a replacement, which as usual, they have in stock. I watched the video on how to DIY replacement and felt comfortable with the process. The battery arrived quickly and the effort was even simpler by the great instructions as well as the included Phillips and tri-lobe screwdrivers. Congrats to NewerTech for making such a complete kit.

Rating: 5/5 OWC is tip top October 11, 2018 owc has done it again. this battery is a perfect drop in replacement to keep my 17" mb pro running. a couple years ago i put in dual ssd's and lately the original 7 year old battery had begin to swell, making the trackpad nearly inoperable. the owc buying experience is about as good as it gets. from easily determining which battery was correct in my application, to fast free shipping, beautiful packaging with exactly the tools required to remove the old and install new battery. an online video to make an already easy job even easier, and the added bonus gift of a really cool machined aluminum fine tipped electronics screwdriver to celebrate owc's 30th anninversary included in the package! awesome customer service. best wishes for another 30. many sincere thank for what you do and the way you do it. -david a.

Rating: 5/5 NewerTech battery just what I needed March 4, 2018 My MBPro was getting a little anemic without the power cord attached. Since I live over 120 miles from the Apple Store, and really couldn't do without my computer for the time it would take for them to change it out, I turned to OWC to see what was available in a replacement and peruse the videos to see if I thought I could do the job myself. I got what I needed and found I could do it. This is a great site for Mac owners with a little DIY skill.

Rating: 5/5 Battery fit perfectly and works February 25, 2018 The battery fit perfectly and works fine. I followed the power management calibration process they recommended with no issues. I also like that the battery was packed well in it's box and that it contained the tools needed to open the MBP and unscrew the battery screws. Recommended.

Rating: 5/5 PB Pro battery replacement February 23, 2018 Battery replacement went fine, video tutorial was helpful.

Replacement battery includes two screw drivers necessary for replacement, But the Phillips driver's tip broke. My experience with Chinese manufactured steel, aluminum, tools, etc. has been bleak. They fail because the metal is brittle or too soft.

Other than that I am going thru the battery calibration process and I hope that all will be well.

Rating: 5/5 Brought new life to my 17" MBP June 3, 2017 Both my charger and battery were on death's door, so I was glad to find a great deal here at Mac Sales.

The battery was relatively easy to install, how-to videos on youtube. Be sure and recalibrate the battery % monitoring per instructions given. (I recall generally that you fully charge it, fully drain it, recharge it and reset something in Settings.)

My only suggestion for improvement would be to offer a prepaid mailing label to send the used battery somewhere for recycling.

My 17" MacBook Pro is still an awesome machine, I also upgraded to an SSD from Mac Sales. Runs like new!

Rating: 5/5 Excellent! May 29, 2017 I bought this battery for my 2009 MacBook Pro. It was crazy easy to install - the battery kit comes with two screwdrivers to assist with the replacement, and an online video made it really easy. The battery works perfectly. They claim the battery life is 10% longer - and it's noticeably better.

Rating: 5/5 Works great. Bonus: fixed trackpad! January 30, 2017 My MBP 17" trackpad had stopped allowing "clicks" over a year ago. Then the battery began to lose its charge faster, so I decided to address the battery issue.

When I opened the computer, the old battery had bulged to the point it was pushing against the trackpad, preventing "clicks."

Luckily, the old battery had not burst. Once I replaced it with this new battery, I now have both a long lasting battery AND my trackpad functions correctly again. Bonus!

Time will tell if the battery performs as well as the original - so far, it is performing well.

Rating: 5/5 Battery Insatallation Was Easy January 28, 2017 The Other World Computing website made it easy for me to choose the correct battery for my MacBook Pro 17" mid 2010 laptop. Most especially, the installation video gave me the confidence to install it. It all worked perfectly. Note: the battery recalibration does take 20+ hours, especially, if like me, you want the recalibration to be as accurate as possible. The battery is functioning flawlessly. Thanks OMC.

Rating: 5/5 Brought my MacBook Pro back to life January 5, 2017 After installing sierra I thought my mbp was dead. After all, it is more than 6 years old. It was painfully slow & apps were quitting left & right. Chrome was unuseable. I took a chance and installed the full complement of ram, an ssd, and a new battery because mine was swollen & the trackpad didn't work. Now I'm in love with my Mac all over again--for well under $400. Installation was super easy & the update was seamless. I now have 500 gig internal & my old drive is external. I could have installed both internal but like having the DVD. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. It boots fast and runs all the apps I can throw at it.

Rating: 5/5 This battery has high quality December 29, 2016 The battery on my MacBookPro 17’’ mid 2010 completely discharged. I was informed in the Apple service that battery for this model no more produce. I have looked manufacturer that I can trust. First of all I find your company at Apple Support Community, then I looked other companies in the internet to compare products. Just a few can suggest option shipping to my country. On the site there is excellent video tutorial how to replace battery. Finally I had video call with my friend in San Francisco and he confirm that OWC is big famous company in US. So all this items as good quality and trust was made my choice, nevertheless I knew that I will have additional expenses for transportation and custom taxes in my country. I was good surprised when opened box and found together with nice battery two screwdrivers to easy replacement battery. I’m glad that my choice was OWC.
