2.0 out of 5 stars Not top notch by any means, 4 May 2013
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]
From the other reviews of this product, which seemed quite good compared to other similar products, I had reasonable hopes for this. However, it wasn't as good as I had hoped it might be.

It doesn't fit perfectly in the way that an Apple branded product would do, though it does fit in the battery slot but slightly tightly (note: more plastic and less metal in the casing than the real thing).
All the time since the first usage, the MacBook has displayed either 'Service battery' (most common) or 'Replace soon' (less common, normally shows after using the laptop plugged in for a session), and battery health shows as around 66%. Not great for a new battery, and actually exactly the same performance as the one I was trying to replace, except that the real Apple part never tells me to service the battery!

So, nowhere near as good as the real thing, but then again nowhere near the price of the real thing either. So you pay your money and take your choice.
