Some users had commented on the colour being different - we didn't really notice that and tend to have the laptop the right way up anyway when using it.
This product looks and feels exactly like the original quality and we were so pleased with the first that we bought a second for another similar machine. They come very well packed and we have been delighted with the quality so far, though only time will tell if that lasts. It is likely that it will outlast the remaining life of the machine, anyway, which is what we really wanted. Would highly recommend as a much more sensible way of giving a MBP a new life.
The original Apple battery was completely dead and the MBPro refuse to try and charge it so I was a bit concerned that the new battery might not work either but it worked straight out of the box (came already charged) and plugging the charger cable in, the MBPro recognised the new battery straight away and it started charging.
Only time will tell how long the battery lasts but for the price it seems a good "middle of the road" option - more robust and better housed than some of the cheaper batteries I looked at. It even has the little button underneath that lights up the LEDs to show you the battery state :)
My machine is the mid-2007 2.4GHz C2D with 4GB RAM and a 128GB SSD. I believe using an SSD is getting me a little more out of the battery so keep that in mind.
Initial impressions are positive, the battery feels as solid as the original Apple battery and slots in comfortably. The battery arrived with about 60% charge, and I've done as the instructions directed- 3 charge cycles.
These charge cycles were time consuming, after the machine drops to 7%, you are to leave the battery charging for 12 hours with the machine completely powered down, but it's worth it as it seems to last a little longer now and the estimated charge times are more accurate.
On a full charge, I get a little over 3 hours depending on usage which is much better than my previous Apple battery (which is now so swollen I'm surprised Apple hasn't issued a recall).
I will update this review should any unforeseen circumstances come up, but this battery is off to a good start. For the price this is much better value than Apples, which appears to have gone up in price again. Also worth noting is that this battery comes with a warrantee should any defects appear which is reassuring.
Half the cost of an original apple battery - the last Apple one I had lasted 9 months
The battery does not fit snugly into the recess and is slightly loose and protrudes from the recess when laptop is lifted from table this does not seem to affect its performance but stops a five star rating.
My only real criticism is that the colour doesn't quite match the MacBook's aluminium casing, so it is rather obvious that it is a replacement battery.

After contact with Anker I have revised my 1 star to 4 in recognition of their willingness to discuss with a amicable settlement for both parties feel done Anker. I am content to the point I have another battery for my MacBook pro from them, apparently the one I previously purchased has been discontinued. Ok I will write another review on the new battery in due course.
