      760+ cycles later!!

      After 4 years of having my MacBook Pro my battery has finally died! When I first got the MacBook the life of the battery was very very good but towards the end After 4 years of having my MacBook Pro my battery has finally died! When I first got the MacBook the life of the battery was very very good but towards the end of it's life it got worse and worse but wouldn't expect anything else. Took my MacBook to the new apple store in Basingstoke, Hampshire and got it checked out, I was told the batteries usually last for about 300 cycles and I was told I had done over 760 cycles!!! The only problem with product is the price.

      Be realistic

      I've had my MacBook Pro for two and a half years now and I'm about to buy a replacement battery - the battery only lasts for 20-30 minutes (Cycle count: 372) - I've had my MacBook Pro for two and a half years now and I'm about to buy a replacement battery - the battery only lasts for 20-30 minutes (Cycle count: 372) - though I could perhaps stretch to three years. Am I impressed with my Apple battery? Well, yes I am. My previous laptop was a 15" Fujitsu. After a little over a year the battery failed. And I mean failed - life of a few milliseconds, knock the power cord and WHAM! instantaneous laptop death. And the battery life was less than a couple of hours even when brand new. And it wasn't covered by the three year warranty (nor was the mains adapter which failed around the same time). Only consolation is a new one is around £75 not £100. So, am I impressed with my Apple battery? Yes indeed I am.

      Several years of good use

      I have just started having trouble with my battery and the System Profiler says the health of the batter is poor. But it has done 707 cycles and from the look o I have just started having trouble with my battery and the System Profiler says the health of the batter is poor. But it has done 707 cycles and from the look of the other people posting on these reviews, this is pretty good. I have had the computer for about four years and have used it very heavily for the last two years as it is now my only computer and runs for at about 8 hours a day. I may find my next battery is as bad as those spoken about here by others, but I hope not and I just wanted to add a very positive review amongst all the doom and gloom. Not all batteries for MacBook Pros are bad news. I would love to hear what is the best practice for keeping a battery in good condition. I run mine until I get a warning that it needs plugging in, then I power up till fully charged, then I remove the cable. Is that good practice? Or have I just been very lucky!

      Can't say I wasn't warned

I had read the reviews here and decided to look around at third party options, however the reviews for those seemed to be just as bad and I figured at least if I bought the genuine article I would have some decent recourse. Well just after the warranty expired the battery conked out completely after only 63 cycles. This time I have gone for a third party battery for half the price and a 50% longer warranty.

      horrible product

      I bought a new replacement battery for my MBP in late October 2013. It is now early December 2014 and the battery is totally gone! £110 down the pan... I wish I I bought a new replacement battery for my MBP in late October 2013. It is now early December 2014 and the battery is totally gone! £110 down the pan... I wish I could say that this wasn't the case but this is the THIRD replacement battery for my MBP.

      Possibly the worst spend of money ever?

I'm on my second (both bought in store), and the latest one won't charge at all (sat at 0%) after just under 2 years. At least the first two (the original and first replacement) made 3 years a piece, but they seem to be getting worse. A friend bought a copy battery off of one of the large 'auction' sites (which I berated him for!) and his has outlasted mine which about sums up the ownership experience, whose laughing now?!. Given my latest gen MBP 13" battery is asonishingly good I just don't get what the score is with these units, but they should by now be about £50 each rather than >£100 each given the woeful lifetime and performance vs. newer kit. Shame on you Apple, an absolutely terrible product, I won't buy another out of principle, so it's AC cord from now on.
