    Purchased as replacement for a 3+ yo macbook, brand new in retail package, for cheaper than from [...] (even with Ed. discount). Battery life returned to as good as new. I've used knock-off brand batteries before at work, and have always been disappointed with performance, Apple OE is the only way to go, and this was the best price anywhere for brand new. I have since suggested my employer buy these items from B&H rather than other channels.

    ...not so long lasting. I bought this replacement Apple Battery because my original one stopped working. I thought that was due me using it wrongly but I see now that Apple batteries have a short life and the charge doesn't last so long. Even I love Apple and I won't stop using it, I can't help but wonder if these batteries aren't designed to end its life soon so you have to buy another.

              it is a battery and is working as hoped. it fits perfectly and it a Genuine Apple product - no aftermarket junk!

              i've been getting nearly 5 hours out of each charge and love it. I drain it all the way down to the 10 min warning before charging. the last one lasted over three years with daily use - i hope this one does the same.

                    This was purchased as a replacement for the manufacturer's battery that would no longer hold charge. While the look of the battery is identical to the original, the feel is not as the surface is not identical (i.e. as smooth) to the laptop's. Upon installation, the computer operates normally and has only experienced one instance where the computer froze and strange vertical lines appeared on the screen. Upon reboot, the laptop has operated normally. For the price, this battery has prolonged the life of an immaculate laptop and saved me from having to purchase another.

                      After 4 years, my original MacBook 13" battery finally had to be replaced. The battery swelled to the point where it was interfering with the trackpad and flatness of the bottom side, even though it wold still hold a decent charge. This is the best replacement in terms of fit and finish to the MacBook.

                          Came with the original retail box(That is what I want and paid for), worked when it was new but die in a year, die means not even take any more charge activities, the battery came with the Mac book more than four years old last only ~ 30 minutes but still taking charge. Not going to replace the battery because it (2008 Mac book) just sitting there doing nothing anyway. Bought the 2012 Mac book pro.

                                This is a replacement battery for my MacBook. Fits properly and seems to hold a charge well. It was just as advertised. I hope it lasts 4 to 5 years like the original did.

                                    I have a 2008 black 13" macbook. My previous battery had gone through 700 cycles before it didn't hold enough charge to use. I bought this as a replacement and it is an official Apple battery which looks exactly like my old one. It was brand new and on its first cycle. Slightly cheaper than elsewhere so I would recommend. It lasts for almost 6 hours when fully charged.

                                                My two experiences with third party Macbook batteries were a big disappointment, in both battery life and stability. This battery is holding a four hour charge and accurately gauging the remaining time/percentage on the battery.

                                                Bought this to replace the battery that came with my 2007 MacBook. As far as I can tell, it's exactly the same, which hopefully means it'll last me another 4 years.

                                                  This battery gave an outstanding performance. It lasted over 6 years and finally gave out. I purchased a new one to replace it. OEM from Apple, can't go wrong. The new one works great and the led that shows the remaining power is a must have.

                                                      This was by far the best price for an Apple battery I found. When I first got it it was at 109%! It is working great compared to my 3 yr old first battery. [...] Will use them again for sure.

                                                      My MacBook battery just died so I was in need of a replacement. The original replacement not only solved my problem but gives me more unplugged time than I expected. Check the coconutbattey application to see what I mean.
