  • Price Excellent, but battery life sucks

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Worked like a charm the first time I put it in.Very good value for money. Very good investment in increasing the life of a dying Macbook.

    Cons: The OS had a hard time calculating the actual time of juice I had left, would go from 40% to 7% in a jiffy. After a year of use, the battery started to beef-up also known as the "inflate" effect.

    Other: Good buy, if you believe your Macbook is only going to stay alive for one more year, if not, buy a replacement as well.

    Pros: plugged it into my laptop expecting the worst because the product is so cheap but it holds charge impressively long, it seems to work as it should although i have not had it long enough to determine how good it is long-term. lasts 3 hours on full charge. definitely will recommend to friends. some people complained about the battery not charging on the old macbooks but this one did just fine.

    Cons: doesn't exactly match colour/plastic/shape but this laptop is so old, i don't care. as long as it charges and holds a charge, i'm happy.

    Other: if you need a new battery for your old macbook, this one is great. can't beat the price!

  • less duration than original, works for 2 years

    posted by xiquitin81 on 16:26:56 G1T 19/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Cheap compared to the original apple replacement. It works fine for 2 years, the last month one battery cell starts to inflate and now the battery is useless

    Cons: less duration than the original, 2.5 hours. The "inflate" effect after 2 years.

    Other: Not recomended if you required a lot of mobiity with your macbook. If you use your laptop mainly at home, or mainly with power connected is good solution.

  • Review for Apple A1185 Compatible 5200mAh Replacem

    posted by KrizpeX on 20:29:47 G1T 12/01/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Bearing in mind that this is not an original from Apple, it is way cheaper than one and although the charge will never be similar to an original battery, it is still quite good, when you take into account the price.
    - Build quality;
    - Color (very close if not exactly the same);
    - Package (it came in a very neat package);
    - LEDs that indicate the amount of charge, just like in the original;
    - Price.

    Cons: As mentioned, it is not an original from Apple, so it is normal to expect some minor quality. This is true especially for the time it holds charge, which is much less than an original Apple battery.
    - Discharge time (much faster than an original);
    - Overall life cycle span (amount of charges and discharges before it gets depleted).

    Other: Taking into account the price you pay, I would recommend it to anyone who needs a substitute for an Apple battery for a cheap price, as long as you don't mind having less battery time available than with the original Apple battery.
    In other words: yes, it is cheaper and yes, it holds much less charge. But nevertheless it works as it is supposed to. =)

  • not that good

    posted by guiesmael on 08:06:06 G11T 24/11/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: - It's way cheaper than the original one. I'd pay U$ 250 for a new one here in Brazil.
    - The color is pretty the same
    - LED botton works

    Cons: - Doesn't work ok with OSX regarding charge. It jumps from 75% to 7%! And on 5% my Macbook turns off. Very disappointing.
    - I still couldn't reach 2 hours of use. I get 1 hour of hard use, not more than that.

    Other: Next time, i'll buy the original one, but you're not a very intensive user, it will work fine for you.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: -price
    -it works just fine
    -LED's on the bottom work
    -it feels sturdy,heavy and of good quality

    Cons: -color could be better
    -the battery isn't as good as the official apple one

    Other: Unless you make alot of use of your MB, this will do fine, if you do use it intensly, invest a (lot) more in a official apple one.
    But this one has an absolutely awsome price point.

  • Great value for money

    posted by ophir007 on 15:38:23 G4T 21/04/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Very good value for money. A good replacement for the original. Fits my macbook perfectly. The white color is very close to the original.

    Cons: Sometimes the remaining time reading that the OS reports is not accurate and the computer shots down when it tells that there are still about 30 minutes left. Not a big issue for me as I usually don't get to these low battery levels.

    Other: Already using it for about 6 months and it work well. I'm about to work with this battery on my macbook for about 3 hours. Excellent value.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Works fine with my 1st gen C2D macbook, get about 2-2,5h per charge. Incredible value.

    Cons: Does not seem to communicate very well with osx regarding charge, it's constantly jumping between 6 and 12 hours of remaining battery life on the estimate but then just dies after about 2-2,5 hours. I guess you don't get a warning because osx has a hard time calculating the charge. However, I don't care, I know I at least get 2 good hour out of it and use it that way.

    Other: Excellent value, as I said, O can live without the low battery warning at this price. It gave new life and usability to my old macbook.

    posted by vboronat on 11:07:44 G2T 24/02/2011 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is a very good battery. It fits perfectly in my MacBook and has been recognized by it immediately. Different to another reviews I have noticed that the white color is very close to the original. I have just received it, so I cannot evaluate it duration, but it works very good for some hours before needs to be recharged. It really looks like original. The price is superb, specially if compared with my nearest Apple Store...

    Cons: It takes like a month to receive the battery from my order, I think this has been because of the chinese new year week, but this is very, very much time to wait for a needed battery.

    Other: Very good low cost battery. I were surprised because this is my first order and I were not very sure to receive it. Now I will buy a Dell 1525 battery too. This service is not very good if you are in a hurry, but those prices are the best I have found.
