Not willing to pay the large sum of money for the official Macbook battery to replace my 2 year old (and now holding just over an hours charge left due to heavy daily use) previous battery, I took the chance with a secondary company for half the price. Unfortunately this risk hasn't paid off.

The product came on time and the service was great as expected. However the battery itself wasn't up to scratch. When it was put into place, there was a large gap margin (1-2mm) around the fit of the insert, which could easily allow dirt through into a delicate area. Especially located on the base of the laptop. Aesthetically the cover is also the wrong shade of white, and looks quite shabby compared to the rest of the laptop.

On-top of this, the battery would be lucky to hold the same amount of charge as my previous apple version after 2 years of use, despite being brand new and only holding 3 charge cycles.

An over-all lack of quality lets this product down, where it could of been a good cheaper replacement. In retrospective, it would probably be best to purchase the official version.

I chose this item for its cheap price and the fact that I needed a battery for my mac fast. After receiving the battery over a week after it's expected delivery time, I plugged it into my laptop and let it fully charged as asked to. Then when I tried to leave my latop on to fully discharge, I kept losing power and my laptop literally switched off with the battery still inside.

When I emailed the company to report the problem and ask for a refund and an address to send the battery back to, all I got was the instructions on what to do when I first received tha battery. I emailed then back, again explaining the problem, I am yet to have a reply.

I think this is totally unacceptable and I have wasted money on a batery that does not work. The communication between the buyer and the comapany is unprofessional. I would not buy from here again, it's not worth the hassle.

It took longer for the guys in Smart Parts to make it possible for me to order the battery from Estonia than the part to actually arrive here! Since I have been on the plug for more than a year now I don't mind for the battery to be of slightly different white shade than the laptop itself. As much as I have heard the original Apple replacement batteries are not up to the standards either so I guess this is not a bad alternative at all.

Receieved my battery today- was a bit wary about it but was loath to spend almost £100 on apple branded battery so took the risk. All seems to working well- is showing 5200mAh maximum capacity which is only slightly less than my original Apple battery which this is replacing. It shows 2 battery load cycles already suggesting it may not be as new as you'd expect but I don't know if this is normal. Waiting to see how long it lasts on a full charge. If it lives for as long as my previous battery (3 years) I'll be very happy!

I bought this in November 09 and it had split the back casing within 12 months. I didn't think too much of it thinking this was cosmetic, but when I took my MAC in for a hard drive upgrade they told me to remove the battery immediately as it was a fire hazard (Note the repair shop do not sell batteries, so no motivation for telling scary stories there). They showed me how the crack on the casing was caused by the swelling of the battery inside.
I should have returned this battery ages ago - the fan on my machine whirred all the time, I guess cooling the battery in retrospect, but I really didn't anticipate a problem like this and I assumed it was just the aging of my 4 year old macbook. Now I've taken the battery out the machine is completely quiet again!

I contacted the seller a few days ago to give them an opportunity to put things right (I know Apple itself has had some fire issues over the years with some bad batches so I didn't have a major strop - I just asked what they could do for me as the product was clearly defective) but have had no response at all. So disappointing product and disappointing customer service from the seller, Smart Parts.

It looks like the real thing and even performs more or less like the real thing - for a while. Ten months later, the casing was gradually becoming distorted. Eventually the casing burst open and some foil-covered substance began protruding. Yes, I daresay I could get a refund. But why buy a second-rate imitation which, I should think, is bound to fail far sooner than the real thing?
