Buy with confidence! Breathe new life into your 6+ year old MacBook with this Anker brand battery. This battery offers about 3 to 4 hours of life without having to plug it in (depending on your settings and usage). MacBook Pro reports the battery’s capacity and charge correctly and it can be run down without the laptop shutting off just like the original battery.
Anker is a third party battery manufacturer, but they have a reputation for quality and good customer service. Yes, their battery costs more than competitor batteries, but it fits just like Apple’s and it comes with an 18 month warranty!
Forget about Apple Care – Anker’s got you covered. If you aren’t sure what battery is right for your MacBook, give Anker a call: 1-800-988-7973 Mon-Fri 9:00AM – 5:00PM PST. Tell them the model number or a description of your Macbook Pro and they’ll be able to tell you the correct battery.
If the battery starts to fail in a year (won’t hold a charge, drains fast, etc), order another one and ship the defective one to Anker for a refund. Indeed, several customers on Amazon mention Anker’s quick replacement of misbehaving batteries.
