3.0 out of 5 stars Good battery, but it doesn't fit the description., 25 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shinntto(TM) New Battery for Apple Macbook 13" White MAC A1185 A1181, 10.8V 10400MAH Battery White
It seems to do the job as a battery fairly well and it's cheap.

BUT, the description for this product is filled with misguiding information.

1. The received battery is a Li-Ion (written on the back), not a Li-Poly as said in description.
2. The received battery has 4729 mAh when checked in system profile, the description says 5800 mAh, meaning 20% less battery life than advertised.
3. The fit is not OEM. It didn't "pop" in place like the original battery and I had to press it fairly hard into the MacBook body to be able to turn the battery lock. When in place the white plastic cover of the battery sticks out a bit on two of the sides so I might have to trim it a bit if it gets annoying.

Hi, any update on how your battery is still performing? As quite a lot of reviews seem to say the battery life extinguishes after approximately 4-6 months.
