High quality replacement laptop battery designed to fit Apple Macbook 13 compatible with A1185. It is made of high quality rechargeable Japanese battery cells with modern Lithium-ion technology. All Lavolta notebook batteries for Apple have passed international certificates CE, FCC, ROHS and are secured against short-circuits and safety hazards.

Extend your laptop battery life with Lavolta hi-tech products! We recommend giving a new battery a few full charge/discharge cycles. If you are working off mains, do turn off any hardware that you are not using: that is bluetooth, CD-rom, Wi-Fi, radio and what not in your laptop. These things use up battery resources reducing battery life of your notebook.

The original battery finally croaked after 6 years in my trusty mid-2007 white MacBook. Unwilling to pay the exorbitant Apple replacement cost, I selected the Lavolta having considered the reviews of many sources.

The battery arrived carefully packaged in protective shielding film and foam padding inside the box, together with clear instructions for the initial charging/discharging cycle. The battery is a good physical fit and its "whiteness" is slightly brighter than the original MacBook casing. Following the initial charge/discharge and recharge the System Report showed 5300 mAh and it is giving nearly 4 hours supply for normal internet and Office applications, noting that this MacBook now has a high volume hybrid solid state/hard drive.

So far the Lavolta is proving a great quality replacement for the Apple OEM battery. Top marks and thoroughly recommended. I will only update if the battery performance changes significantly.

After 6 years my MacBook battery inside cover became partially detached which meant that the battery projected about 3 mm below the bottom of the computer even when it was locked securely in place. Strangely this seemed to result in erratic performance:locked up screen amongst other irritations.

I was shocked by the price of an Apple store replacement and eventually settled on this battery. It was fully charged after a short time (with the computer switched off) and it holds charge very well - I think as well as the original battery.

100% satisfied with this product.

I was nervous about buying an OEM battery for a Macbook after some of the reviews, but this is around 1/3 the price of getting a real Apple battery. It fit fine and so far is working well. It doesn't pretend to be a real Apple battery, but looks a quality product in good packaging and well made. Even if it doesn't last quite as long as the real thing, it should be worth it.

First of all the service was great - delivered on time, and did what it said on the box. Can't fault the seller - perfect transaction. I was a little disappointed that the Lithium Battery has an obnoxious charging routine - where you have to charge it for 14+ hours - and it's recommended you do this up to FOUR times for best results - while NOT using the laptop - which was a real nuisance. I guess it's the nature of a Lithium Battery - again, no flaw on the seller's (or manufacturere's) part really - but if you can't be without your laptop while the battery works out its charge capacity ... you'd better be prepared for this charge-up routine!!

Battery is working well, despite that I couldn't stick to the charging routine. I charged for 12 hours, then I had to use it and plug it in to speed the some processes - but it s seems to be working fine all the same.

Used it for the last 4 months without any problems.
Holds a charge without any lose and considerable cheaper than buying the mac brand.

Got this for my better half's 2006 Macbook as the battery wasn't holding charge. What can I say, it works perfectly and she's getting about 4.5 to 6 hours from a single charge - although I've changed her hard drive for an SSD which might explain the longevity a bit.

The only thing to note is that the plastic isn't identical to the Macbook white and the fit isn't quite as flush, however it is dramatically cheaper so to be expected.

Working as expected so far. The battery does not fit as neatly as the original and has a slight colour difference, but it does not affect it's performance.
Update 12/6/15: The computer in the last few days is showing "Service Battery" which is a little worrying as it is less than 3 months old.

After having my Macbook for a fair few years now, and the battery obviously having been discharged and charged over 1000 times (I'd have thought), it was lucky to last 2 hours off a full charge. This is part of the reason I went for this battery - I also thought it would be useful to have a backup battery for when travelling long distances.

This battery will last for between 5 and 6 hours depending on the screen brightness - 3 times the current life of my battery, and almost bang on the OEM battery life when brand new!

Also including the battery charge test button (the 6 green LEDs to test battery percentage without powering on the Macbook) is a massive plus for me, as using both this battery and my original battery when on long journeys, it's useful to know the battery life contained without attaching to the Macbook
