Product Description

Product Description

Safe and reliable
Like all Lavolta products, this high quality laptop battery has been designed to fit Apple MacBook Pro 15" inch A1175 A1211 A1226 A1260 A1150. It has a strong, durable construction and is made of high quality rechargeable Japanese cells with modern technologies. We recommend giving a new battery a few full charge/discharge cycles. If you are working off mains, turn off any hardware that you are not using, e.g. bluetooth, CD-rom, Wi-Fi, etc - these things use up battery resources reducing battery life of your notebook.

Quality that you can trust
This Lavolta notebook battery has been tried and tested to make sure it works with Apple MacBook Pro 15". Designed in London, Lavolta products are guaranteed to work well and to last. All our products are manufactured in compliance with UK and EU regulations, including emissions and safety standards. We maintain strict control over the entire product cycle by keeping a close eye over every step of the design, production, and delivery process.

My two-year-old MacBook Pro still runs fast and has a great screen, but the battery life was becoming ridiculous. I couldn't work on it for longer than an hour - an HOUR - away from the mains recently, and realised this was just absurd. A not very mobile laptop. And imagine my distaste, after having shelled out for a very decent computer, that a replacement battery would cost £100.

Finding this OEM version of the battery was a godsend. Believe me, it looks absolutely identical to the official Apple battery that costs twice as much. The only difference is the absence of an Apple label. Otherwise, this is the real deal - it fits in perfectly, has the same LED battery level indicators (never saw the point of them, being on the underside, but there you go), and once installed we're back to almost 4 hours of battery life. Like the good old days, when you first bought the laptop.

Battery technology *really* needs to change, but in the meantime I'm really grateful that this product exists. Absolutely recommend this product, and delivery was pretty quick too, without environmentally unfriendly overly fancy packaging. Bargain.

Awful service. Stay away! Battery took ages to arrive and only lasted 2 charge cycles! It's £50 of useless metal. No replies to my e-mails from seller either. Let's hope amazon will help with the dispute...

I was very glad to find this battery on Amazon after seeing the price of the genuine Apple part. It came within a couple of days and fitted just as well as the old one. Time will tell as to whether it performs as well as the genuine Apple part. It is made in China, so is probably exactly the same as the ones that are shipped from Hong Kong by a certain company with multiple websites and a lot of disgruntled customers. However I felt a lot more comfortable ordering it from an Amazon partner.

August 2012: Well, it's now two years later and I'm down to little more than an hour's use between charges.

I won't never buy a battery like this. I did buy it because I think batteries from Apple are too expensive and I thought this one was going to be the same, but with not so good materials (plastic instead of aluminium). But the truth is that this battery started to be a problem at the beginning.

I calibrated the first time and I always take care of batteries, but after two months using it my MacBook Pro started to shut down suddenly when remaining 20% of the power, and it was happening some times. One month later more or less, every time my Mac went to sleep when closing, it powered off after some time sleeping, even with battery at 90% of charge. This is happening more often and I can't never sleep my Mac because it shuts down (not hibernating) randomly when sleep, loosing all my data if I don't save it.

I tried to reset the SMC and a other things like calibrating or changing system parameters with pmset, but nothing worked. The result is that after 15 cycles and 100% health of the battery, Snow Leopard says "Condition: Replace Now", so I suppose the battery is not that healthy. First battery I buy not from Apple, first problematic battery.

Next time I suppose I'll pay the extremely expensive Apple battery.

My experience with this one has been really bad.

On first inspection the battery looks the part virtually identical to the original Apple battery including the 5 green LED's on the back, the aluminum back plate is actually thicker than my original battery (still sits flush though) which is probaly a good thing as heat will probably be dissipated better(my macbook gets hot enough to fry an egg!)

For those of you that are pedantic (me) the silver is a shade or two out from the original, but who's gonna see the battery underneath right?

Once charged the battery seems to perform as good as the original, the LED's on the back work just as the original did, and battery life is as good as it was from new....although I never get 4 hours out of a fully charged battery more like 2.5 but it depends on how you used the laptop, if you reduce the screen brightness, use aiport/bluetooth etc and also depending on what apps your using too.

Overall for half the price of the genuine Apple replacement I can't fault it, and after hearing reports of other non-gen batteries being a bit hit and miss (LED's not working + poor life) I would definitely recommend.

The last time I got a new battery for my Macbook Pro on the web, what arrived was a decidedly pre-loved casing fitted with allegedly "new" cells that lasted less than a year, despite careful use. It also cost about 50% more than this excellent product, which comes brand new, factory-fresh and very competitively priced. Factory packaging is tight and solid -- so much so that it took me a couple of minutes to extricate the battery from its carton.

The only down-side is the largely incomprehensible instruction leaflet, couched in an absurd Monty Python-style Chinglish that could create problems for anyone unfamiliar with basic battery discipline, putting battery life-expectancy at risk. It seems a pity that the distributors have not picked this up, as it really needs a rewrite job at the factory end.
