Rating: 5/5 Great battery brings new life to iBook! March 17, 2015 This battery is a high quality replacement to the original! It's built really well and fits perfectly! Also the runtime life is quite good too! I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a quality battery for their 12" iBook! My only caveat is that the colour is a bit off. Thats a pretty minor bone to pick; but nonetheless if you might notice.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
