Shinntto, So Far So Good,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shinntto(TM) High Quality Replacement battery for MacBook Pro 15" A1175, MA348G/A, MA463LL/A, MA464LL/A, MA600LL/A, MA680LL/A, MA601LL, MA466LL/A, MA681LL/A; [10.8v;60WH;SILVER;Lighter and Longer working hours]
I must admit, that I bought the Shinntto battery for my 2007 Macbook pro because it was affordable, unlike the official Apple replacement.
The battery fitted perfectly into the Laptop. It had around 70% charge on receipt.
My particular laptop, would not work with the charger it came with with a dead battery installed, and therefore I was using a charger from a higher output 2012 Macbook pro, which works regardless.
When I installed the Shinnntto battery, I was able to use the original power supply and it worked from the get go.
The charging indicator on the OSX desktop showed it was charging the Shinntto and was no longer telling me to replace the battery, and was fully charged within the hour.
I unplugged the power supply and it worked perfectly.
The only negatives, if at all are:-
The Shinntto is slightly darker in colour than the case of the Macbook.
The battery indicator button is plastic and not metal.
The battery indicator button is a little bit awkward to press.
Haven't checked on length of running time on battery alone, but this is dependent on how power hungry the applications you are using are, but I suspect around the 2-3 hour mark.
Overall, pleased with purchase.
