    Remember when you got your laptop and the batter lasted like...hours!? Yes, before your battery bulged like a fat man in a skinny suit (google "mbp battery bulge" to see what I'm talkin about)

    Just before mine bulged, the battery life was 2 hours max. Now, with the new one, I'm back to 4-6 hours (depending on what I'm doing...and I'm doing a lot!...Cinema4D, Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator, design everything, I do it...and now, for longer.

    Great battery, get one!

    This is for my Intel 17" Macbook Pro...

    Weird, but this battery has a life time of 2 years... begins charging less, then begins to inflate and affects the trackpad.

    I would not buy it any more, but my Macbook need the battery.

                              Love my new MacBook rechargeable battery. Unlike like all the other companies that offer compatible Mac rechargeable batteries that either don't fit or charge properly this is a genuine Apple battery. And at only [$] with free shipping you save on average of $30.00. I would recommend B&H for any Mac accessories over and over again.

                                As with most macbooks, the battery on mine began to bulge, followed by a shorter charge life, followed by a completely non-functioning battery. Obviously, this is an important item, but often a pricey investment. I was so relieved to see that B&H was able to provide a high quality Apple brand battery, at a lesser price. Also, I really appreciated the free shipping! Apple makes great products, but all need to be replaced at some point. And this is a great battery to replace it with.

                                The battery life on these have been great, but the one that shipped with this mac was recalled, and the replacement just started bulging a couple weeks ago.

                                The computer is 5 years old and reaching the point of obsolesence, but it's still a work horse for my office when our other macs are busy rendering. Can't give it 5 stars since the last two batteries didn't just lose their charge but were potentially dangerous.

                                    The Rechargeable Battery for my 17-Inch MacBook Pro was a life saver. I thought that I may have to buy a new computer but decided to try the battery first. It was a lifesaver and I got it at a reasonable price. Thanks B&H.

                                    After trying a number of discounted batteries for my computer, I learned a valuable lesson. Always buy a quality product from a reputable source. It was good to get things working again. It charged me up

                                    I was happy to find this replacement battery on this site...great price for a genuine Apple battery, [...] I find that these batteries do not hold a charge for a really long time, but I did need a replacement, since my old one was completely dead and started to expand/bulge (not good).

                                    The battery is definitely an OEM product, not a less expensive knock off. Fits perfectly, functions like new. Avoided buying some compatible wannabes as the run times were reported as less than the OEM item even though the item was less expensive.

                                      My original MacBook Pro battery provided more than 5 years of continuous, reliable service, so naturally I was dismayed when it finally succumbed to bulging battery syndrome. I spent the better part of two days researching replacement batteries. Without exception, they all had a mix of glowing praise and horror stories; however, ALL of the favorable reviews were posted soon after purchase. None of them reported the performance of the batteries even as long as 1 year after purchase.
                                      For me, the Apple battery is a known quantity. I can't argue with 5+ years of great performance. If I get the same service out of another Apple battery, it will have been well worth the cost of not buying an el cheapo that dies after a year or two...or less.

                                            I got this battery for my MacBook after the original (over 4 years old) decided to not work. [...]took it out of the box and installed it and its worked great since!!

                                                  I was beginning to think I would have to replace my notebook as it was very sluggish and would not hold a charge very long. This new battery was all it took to revie it.
