    I use my 2007 Macbook pro on location for my commercial photo business. Love my Mac but neglected to calibrate the original battery on a regular basis. Although 3 years is not bad for a rechargeable battery I may have shortened its life due to my lack of care. For the last year I have had to plug it in which on location kind of defeats the the purpose. After reading several reviews I purchased the Apple replacement. It's the only way to go. Using an off brand battery seemed like a bad idea from the start. Got the battery from here in a couple days, popped it in and followed the calibration steps from Mac's site. Went from 20 minutes of battery life to almost 4 hours (light website surfing) - the life of the charge does vary and I am sure it will be less on location editing images BUT this battery is as good as the new one and brings my laptop back to life!

    If you have a MacBook Pro that uses this battery I will not be telling you anything new. The battery is average at best. This is my second battery in less than a year and it does not stand up to even average use. The charge does not last long and I have yet to get 300 cycles on the battery. I do not use my computer except for a couple of hours in the evening so it's certainly not from excessive use. If you want to use your laptop without a power source, you have no other option but to put up with this battery.

    Comments about Apple Rechargeable Battery for 15-Inch MacBook Pro:

    Still have the older 2007 MacBook Pro where you can actually take off the battery. My last battery still works but its dying and won't hold as long of a charge. 6 years is a long time though and I'm hoping this battery will be just as good. B&H is a great place to get it because of their discounted price. To add a comparison, my husband's PC laptop had to have the battery and the charger replaced. It's only a year older than mine and it finally totally died. They don't sell the battery for his laptop anymore.

      Comments about Apple Rechargeable Battery for 15-Inch MacBook Pro:

      Right out of the box no issues this is the 3 rd battery for my 2008 MBPro so one at a little over 2 yrs use not to bad. Considering I used this in Afghanistan for 8 Months and with the power issues there probably put the battery through the ringer...

          Comments about Apple Rechargeable Battery for 15-Inch MacBook Pro:

          Replaced my old Macbook Pro 3.1 (2007) battery after 400 cycles. This official OEM apple battery fit perfectly and B&H delivered it extremely fast. Some of my thoughts:1) Doesn't get to the 4+ hours I first receieved with my original battery, will get only 2.5-3 hours on casual use (surfing, itunes, some youtube)2) I'm on my 10th cycle, and the battery is getting better. You will have to calibrate it by charging it up and running it down until it turns off a few times for it to be optimized.3) Price offered at B&H is better than from the Apple Store. And free shipping.

                    Definitely a better battery life compare to my original. With this battery, I am getting just about four hours life. The pro about this battery is the price, it was a little bit cheaper than at Apple and you can't bet no tax and free shipping. The con is it is a darn expenseive battery. That is the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five.

                      I considered a number of low-cost replacements, but after reading reviews, decided to go with the real thing. I haven't been disappointed. The battery fits perfectly, arrived with about 50% charge (which gave me 2.5 hours of use, no less!), charges perfectly, and, all-in-all couldn't recommend this more.

                      It might cost you a bit more than the third-party alternatives, but I believe you'll get your money's worth.

                          I bought this to replace the 4 year old battery in the Macbook Pro I just purchased. I read that it is wise to pay a little more for the true Apple battery and I am glad I did. It is the exact replacement and I am sure it is performing as brand new. I am also glad I used B&H for the purchase. Fast, Fair and easy just as it was in 1998 for my first purchase.

                            This is my first replacement battery. I had the original for nearly 6 years. I've read the reviews and it seems like this one might not last that long but I am hopeful! I have only had it for a couple weeks now and it seems to be working just fine.

                              Thus far the battery replacement for my 2007 Macbook Pro has worked fine. It did come up to only 97% capacity, but that's from me needing to re-calibrate the computer.
                              It fit perfectly and took 30 seconds to install. The computer is now mobile again! B&H had a perfect price and delivered the battery without trouble.

                                  As a replacement for the previous battery which came with my Macbook Pro, it's great. Reminds me of when I first bought the computer: I can actually run unteatherd for the first time in months for about 2 hours at a time.

                                  Then again...

                                  As a laptop battery in today's market, it's not that great whatsoever. Then, again, we are talking about a computer from 5 years ago.

                                      Comments about Apple Rechargeable Battery for 15-Inch MacBook Pro:

                                      The rechargeable battery of my 15-Inch MacBook Pro (early 2008) stop charging after to leave it in my computer for a long time while it was plug in with the power cable.

                                      Having a new battery becomes essential at some point and how long it last is gonna depend of the way you use it. In essence, use the battery as much as you can and the power cable only to charge it.

                                      Regarding my purchase specifically at B&H versus Apple store, there was no question when I found out that B&H was $10 cheaper and the delivery date was next day with not charge in NYC area in contrast to 5 days delivery through Apple, since they don't have this product anymore in stock on their stores and you have to order on line.

                                      The battery came in their original box and wrapping. Its was easy to install and worked right away. I have charge it completely already many times and I don't have any problems with it. It last around 3.5-4 hours and take another 3 to 4 to charge completely.

                                      I am using now the battery as primary energy source in my laptop and now I realize how convenient this is.

                                      The battery is highly recommended, to purchase it at B&H is recommended even more.
