Popped In, Started Up, Full OEM Capacity Review by Mike
How do you rate this product?
This is one nice little battery! I got to replace a melting battery pack and needed something quick and inexpensive. As luck would have it, this battery is just the right thing for the job. The only difference from the OEM is that the pack fits in slightly loose, but once you close everything up it settles in nicely.

I have yet to fully stress test the thing but So far it handles very well, and it comes with a 18 month warranty. (Posted on 3/25/2016)
As advertised. Review by jack
How do you rate this product?
Does what it says - I have found that if you stick stringently to the 1st charging regime it works excellent. A lot of people that complain it does not last do not ever adhere to the charging process, or never read it in the manual. It will likely still only last for 2 years max, but that is on par with all MacBook pro batteries for this model. (Posted on 2/26/2016)
This one Review by Samuel
How do you rate this product?
After a few months, I can say it does the job. It would have been premature to rate it out of the box, so here you go. Quality is the best bargain, and this is at least as good as the OEM.
It takes and HOLDS a charge. That's the bottom line (Posted on 7/6/2015)
Works for me Review by Nandy
How do you rate this product?
I didn't realize it at the time, but the first symptom that something was wrong with my laptop was that the trackpad wasn't clicking sometimes. I noticed this after a software update, so I assumed it was some kind of software behavior change which I didn't appreciate. The other symptom was that the battery cover plate was sticking out a bit on the left, but I didn't think much of it at the time.

It turned out that my battery, while working fine, was bulging. As soon as I discovered this, I ordered a replacement, and I'm pretty happy with the LB1 High Performance replacement. (Posted on 4/3/2015)
Looks like the original Review by kate
How do you rate this product?
Battery appears to be very near the Apple OEM specification. It snapped right in. The original battery had bulged and interfered with the track pad function. With the replacement battery, track pad is back to normal. (Posted on 3/21/2015)
Fit and works perfectly Review by Carl
How do you rate this product?
Fits perfectly, works perfectly. The only negative is that the seller wants you to discharge the battery to 7% charge and recharge it 3x for 12 hours, while the computer was shut down before using it normally. I guess if you are sitting at your laptop all day, you can monitor the state of charge. My wife is in and out of her office all day and found it frustrating to constantly have to go back to monitor the state of charge and then recharge it for 12 hours without using it. Hopefully, following the recommended charging cycle will make last longer. (Posted on 2/20/2015)
Great replacement for my old battery! Review by Bob
How do you rate this product?
I got this as a replacement for my older battery which started to bulge in the middle. So far, this is working out great and makes my Macbook feel new and usable again. It seems to hold the charge a little bit longer, I'd say I get an hour more than I did with the stock battery that came with it when I first purchased this laptop. Recommended. (Posted on 5/7/2014)
Excellent battery! Not worth paying (at least) $100-$120 for the Apple battery Review by Henry
How do you rate this product?
So far this works perfectly. My old battery would last (maybe) an hour off of the charger. It took a couple charging cycles but now the battery life has significantly improved. My computer still runs really hot and sounds like its trying to render every Pixar movie at the same time, so theres obviously another issue to address (I thought those wouldve been fixed with the purchase of a new battery). Great product though, came with an 18 month warrenty, and I think I'll get a good life out of this battery. (Posted on 6/13/2013)
A decent battery that fit perfectly! Review by Johnny
How do you rate this product?
On time, perfect condition. Seems to work great and hold a charge for a while though this old MacBook Pro has never lasted a long time on charge. The old battery would discharge just laying around and not being turned on or used. This new has fixed that problem. (Posted on 4/17/2013)
