Top Positive Review

Official OEM battery design capacity is 7150 mAh. This replacement battery has a design capacity of 8000 mAh, but let’s not assume this battery is better based on this alone.

To be clear, I purchased this battery because 1) it has an outstanding 2 year warranty at the time of this writing which I hope I will not need to claim, 2) it is cost-effective, and 3) I want to support pro-consumer practices. The consumer should have the option to service their own devices if it is within their comfort zone.

Installation: Patience and a little dexterity is all that is needed. Screws are tiny but the included screwdriver is magnetic. If screws do go missing, there are extra external screws provided along with pads and silicone keyboard cover. Instruction is available on YouTube from a quick search. (5/5 – accurate fitment of replacement battery – magnetic screwdriver is thoughtful)

Battery Life: I am at 40% after 7 hours of continuous use. This is with multiple Safari tabs open, Word processing, and Itunes running. This will vary depending on your use clearly. (4/5 – too early to say, will update after a second discharge cycle).

Longevity: I only work indoors. At room temperature, this battery is running within OEM specifications. The overload and overcharge chip is doing its job. (4/5 – too early to say, will update after a second discharge cycle).

tldr: This is an inexpensive battery relative to what Apple is charging that requires installation yourself. Initial use shows battery life similar to OEM, 10-12 hours. Tools included. I am giving this battery 4/5 stars for now. More battery cycles are needed to see if the quality is there.

—early update—
Just completed a second discharge cycle. Battery life has improved by an additional 45 minutes. Same work load. This is likely the SMC recalibration, but I am impressed. I am cautiously updating to 5/5 because 1) I made a deadline on a project thanks to this battery and 2) customer service was prompt to answer my questions. THIS provides much needed reassurance to buy from this seller when there are so many on Amazon selling what appears to be similar products.

Top Critical Review

I only recently (last week) installed this product. I was initially hesitant to open my 2013 macbook air, but it was a good surprise to find out the installation was super easy. The product comes with all the tools necessary to open the back of my laptop. I also appreciate the extra rubber feet, screws and keyboard protection added to the product. The new battery fitted my mac judging by appearance only looks well made, and looks similar to the original.

I’ve only went through several charing cycles since last week, but so far it holds the charge perfectly, and my computer feels like new again! I guess i need more time to see the durability of it, but based on my experience so far – i would recommend this product.

EDIT: after 8 months of usage… the battery does not hold a charge. it sharply drops from 100% to 20% after 90mins of light use

Customer Questions & Answers

Can it be compatible with my macbook air 13 Mid 2011?
Answer: Compatible with all versions of the macbook air 13-inch from the late of 2010 to 2017.

If your company is from China, made in China, why are you using the word Japan?
Answer: The best memory cells come from Japan. What the ad is stating is this product uses battery cells made in Japan. I have no connection with this company but know about battery technology.

Are the included screws for the bottom of the case or are they internal battery screws?
Answer: Dear, thanks for your question.

Only the bottom of the case with 10 screws does not include internal screws.
