Rating: 5/5 Great product February 17, 2017 This item is a perfect fit replacement. Easy to install and even comes with the 2 screwdrivers needed to do the job, including a tri-lobe that is very hard to find. This is a much better solution then paying Apple $179 to do the same job. Installation took about 15 minutes.

Rating: 5/5 Cheep and Effective December 4, 2016 The tools supplied made the installation quick and easy.

My Mac is no longer the standard product, so I am unable to judge whether the new battery is identical to the original one provided by Apple. I can say that the old battery had lost its ability to maintain a charge, and this one gives me several hours of intense computation. I wish I could be more objective. I do like the fact that this new battery indicator is now much more conservative: It will warn me that I have almost no more charge, and go on to deliver another hour.

I will say that this product has extended the useful life of my lovely 2011 17-inch MacBook Pro, and given the low cost of this replacement, you are not going to hear me complain, ever!

Rating: 5/5 Very good product October 17, 2016 I was a little sceptical at first buying a replacement for my MacBook Pro battery since it wasn't certified by apple but i would definitely recommend Macsales.com.

The quality of the product is exactly as stated, the installation was super easy as every tools were included and it was well instructed.

The customer service I've talked to was polite and very professional.

I can tell I'm a very happy customer and I will come back for sure.

Thank you Macsales.com

Rating: 5/5 Great Battery; Easy to Install October 9, 2016 The battery in my MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2011) was failing. I didn't want to buy a new laptop because this one still does everything I need a laptop to do. After reading about the experiences of others who had laptop batteries replaced (more expensive and time wasted while the laptop was in the shop) or replaced the batteries themselves (warnings to buy a quality name-brand battery - some hadn't and regretted it), I looked for a trustworthy store that sold a quality battery. My past experiences with Other World Computing led me to their website. Not only did I find a top-rated battery but also a video showing how to remove the old battery and install the new one. Plus, MacSales.com included the tools I needed in the package with the battery and offered help by phone if I needed it. You cannot beat their inventory, product quality, prices, or customer service. I am completely happy with my newly installed battery! And it was SO easy to install!

Rating: 5/5 Very pleased! July 31, 2016 Maybe it's just because I never replaced a computer battery before, but I am super impressed with how easy it was and how detailed the instructions were. Also, the two super tiny, necessary screwdrivers were included in the box. Thank you!! The instructions on how to calibrate the battery were clear and simple, as well. I never even knew calibrating a battery was a thing. But, it is, and it was easy. I would definitely recommend this product.

Rating: 5/5 Like new again March 25, 2016 After having two (cheaper) batteries from Amazon die on my within weeks of installation, I was about to give up on my MacBook. Decided to try this one out and am very happy that I did. My laptop's battery is acting like it did when it was new again. I an actually use it for more than 10 minutes before it dies, the low battery warning works again instead of just shutting off, etc., etc., etc.. Just buy one if your current battery isn't holding a charge any longer, you won't regret it.

Rating: 5/5 Best quality batteries September 20, 2015 There are lots of places that sell batteries. There is only one place that I buy batteries for Mac when Apple won't sell me one--OWC. They last and last and last, just like an Apple battery or better. I've found a cheap Chinese battery in a customer's Mac that had expanded A LOT. After taking it apart, we found a bunch of AA batteries wrapped in black electrician's tape, in a plastic case. Don't be fooled by low prices--get quality from a company that's been around for a long time for a good reason--THEY ROCK! --Mac Ace, Inc.

Rating: 5/5 Excellent upgrade September 11, 2015 The 2011 17" MBP is still a very capable machine. This NewerTech battery can extend its useful life by years. Installation is easy, and NewerTech includes the necessary screwdrivers--very classy touch. My MBP now gets the 6-7 hours of battery life that it got when it was new. Very good product, absolutely worth the money.

Rating: 5/5 Perfect Replacement for 2011 17in MBP June 13, 2015 If you're like me and have been using the amazing 2011, 17 inch, i7 MacBook Pro (still one of the best models to date... don't get me started on how many ports they removed over the years) and the battery is barely working, causing your whole system to throttle, then this is the battery to buy.

I've been meaning to buy a replacement for several months now, because of the obvious swelling (couldn't use the trackpad) and the throttling of high CPU/GPU processes but it was very difficult finding a reliable manufacturer that could provide this specific model for less then an official Apple Store replacement -- which would cost at least $200 and several days "in-shop".

Replacing the battery for this model isn't difficult, unscrew the bottom panel, unscrew the battery, replace battery, then screw everything back in. Probably 10 minutes if you're taking your time.

This battery comes with the needed screwdrivers, so you don't have to worry about buying a fancy set elsewhere.

Rating: 4/5 It works May 14, 2015 I was worried it might not work as I had ordered batteries in the past from other vendors, but I installed this and it was fine. According to Coconut battery, it is fully functioning with a very high capacity. The price was fair, however being Canadian, the customs charges from shipping made it more expensive total than going to Apple in the end. That said, I was able to do it quickly from home in no time and not have to worry about backing up my drive and losing my computer for an indefinite period, while Apple repaired it.

*Up to 8% more capacity than the Apple original battery that shipped with the MacBook Pro 17" Unibody Early/Late 2011
