Parts Origin - OEM

The term OEM stands for 'Original Equipment Manufacturer', the exact meaning differs in several industries.

To us, OEM means that the part is the same part used within your device, using the same materials and specifications.

We use the term OEM to cover many parts from refurbished, used and new components, the exact condition will be stated in the items description.

In some cases when the part supplied is made up to several components (for example an LCD assembly) the part may have been assembled by a 3rd party vendor using OEM parts meaning that consumable may differ (such as adhesive used)

Although strict testing procedures are put in place to ensure the quality of the part these testing practices and procedures may differ from the checks manufacturers use.

Any hardware supplied as OEM will not have any quality loss or loss of features and covered under our extensive returns policy.

As in many cases we dont obtain directly from the devices manufacturer, nor in some cases are we affiliated with device manufacturer in any way and they are not involved in the testing or sales process of the component we sell.

Very pleased to have my old 2011 Mac Air now back running unplugged for hours! Major bonus that it came with the 2 mini screwdrivers needed: this made it very easy to swap out the battery. Replacebase may be a couple of quid more expensive than the cheapest price online you can find for this battery, but you are not getting some cheap clone battery here, it is a genuine OEM part as far as I can tell.

Ordered this to replace a mid 2012 MacBook air original battery. Installation was easy, tutorials can be found on ifixit and YouTube. Battery approved within 2 days, it was well packaged and included some tools too (had own so didn't use). Been using the battery for a few weeks now and it seems to hold the charge well. Price was reasonable, quality seems good, no complaints.

This was my third attempt to find a genuine OEM replacement for my Apple MacBook and I am so happy that I found ReplaceBase..Genuine part and arrived exactly as promised along with the screw drivers required to replace it.. So far a happy customer and I recommend ReplaceBase compared to those that you find in Amazon and eBay

Tom Posted on 07/01/2019

The battery was delivered quickly and came exactly as described. So far it's holding it's charge well! Great battery for the price, will certainly look to purchase again from Replace Base.

Mikael Posted on 30/11/2018

Fast delivery. Battery works perfect. Small screwdrivers included in the box.

Charlie Posted on 06/11/2018

Arrived quickly. Been using for the past 3 weeks. Holds its charge superbly. Would buy again

Nick Rennardson Posted on 25/10/2018

Queries were dealt with promptly, battery was delivered very quickly and very easy to fit using the tools supplied. MacBook Air is now back to full working order. I was a bit cautious but would not be concerned if looking to replace battery using replace base.

Rich Posted on 23/10/2018

One of the easiest MacBook replacements you can do, so easy I let my 9 year old daughter do it. Bonus getting the pair of screwdrivers you need included with the battery. OEM replacement, same manufacturer as the original. Charged to 7208mAh immediately. Now my MacBook Air doesn't have to be plugged in all the time.

D Griffiths Posted on 15/10/2018

Item arrived in good time, fitment was relatively easy with tools needed supplied in box with item. Original battery was rated at 6700mAH, one supplied is quoting 7200mAH in battery status. After one weeks usage all is well with mac book holding its charge like new.

Phil H Posted on 19/09/2018

Product arrived very quickly with the correct screw drivers which i was not expecting. Fitting very easy and now my Macbook Air is back t life with a good 6/7 hours running time

Mac Vila Posted on 25/08/2018

Frete rápido, bateria no 1° ciclo de contagem, encaixe perfeito.

Nicola P Posted on 28/06/2018

I was hesitant about doing this myself but after watching some Youtube videos it turns out to be really simple. The battery also comes with the screwdrivers needed for the replacement. Initially I didn't fully insert the connectors so panicked when it didn't work, but only the second try everything was perfect. Definitely recommend!

Pierre Posted on 29/03/2018

The battery fit perfectly inside the MacBook Air. It has 1 cycle charge on it, it's brand new (the battery case is refurbished, but the cells are new). I used it for now 2 weeks, and the battery hold perfectly the charge, no issues with it. However, there was screwdriver missing (Torx T5) from the set to remove the battery.

Ed Posted on 22/03/2018

Excellent service, battery exactly as described and original

Richard Posted on 01/03/2018

I was a bit worried about installing this battery but you tube videos showed me the way, and it was actually quite simple. Battery works really well, and I'm chuffed with myself for saving so much money - about a third of the price of Apple doing it for me. Excellent all round.

Terry Posted on 19/02/2018

Great price for OEM battery especially as necessary tools were supplied.Battery replacement was very straightforward and laptop has no more power issues.

Jon Posted on 16/02/2018

Apple wanted £130+ to replace this battery. Bought mine from Replace Base. Watched a couple of videos on replacement and have just completed the replacement successfully. AS long as you take care and a little time, it's very straightforward. The Coconut battery app reports the replacement as being 100% design capacity and also reports the manufacturer as the same as the original one. Happy customer!

Pablo Posted on 13/02/2018

Fast shipment and the battery seems to be the same as the original.

Sam Posted on 03/02/2018

I wasn't sure if these batteries were refurbished or not, but a quick email and reply confirmed they are brand new, so I promptly ordered one at these great prices. Ordered on a Sunday, arrived on Tuesday. Even came with the pentalobe screwdrivers. Installed and verified the battery with Coconut battery, and this is brand new...44 days old to be precise. TL DR - If you need a replacement batter for your mac, but it here. Thanks guys, great work. Sam

RoyC Posted on 16/10/2017

My replacement battery arrived within a couple of days which I was very impressed with. Unfortunately, after about 70% of max charge, the battery failed - this happened 3 times. I contacted Replace Base via their 'Chat' facility and Mike was very quick to admit that there was a problem and he immediately agreed to send a replacement which duly arrived within another 2 days. Great Customer Service. Overall, the process to replace the battery was really easy and something that is not advertised is that the battery comes with the necessary screwdrivers to remove and re-install the battery and MBA case.

Roger Posted on 03/01/2016

Apple will only supply their batteries to authorised repairers that are not allowed to resell them. The battery I received from ReplaceBase was apparently brand new and is performing as I expect so I am one happy customer. I will be back for other Apple parts in future!
