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.

I spent quite some time researching a replacement battery that was fitting the specs of my Mac (year / model) and its original battery (model / power / etc). Replacebase were the only ones who had the exact replacement product I was looking for, at a good price. It was delivered fast, with screwdrivers necessary to make the change and the new battery works great - charging capacity equal to the original battery, no troubleshooting whats or ever; and I checked the number of prior charges the battery had before being delivered to me - it was 0. The battery was officially brand new. Really happy.

I received my replacement battery within a very few days. It is easy to install and works perfectly. Thank You.

I received my battery within 4 days of ordering. When I opened the box I discovered that even the tools to change the battery were supplied. I promptly removed and placed all the screws safe on the foam packing. Cover removed this then revealed the battery and the screws holding it which were swiftly removed. I slightly raised the battery up and gently disconnected it from the circuit board. Using the reverse procedure I reassembled and hey presto 20 minutes or so later a good strong genuine battery. I have now added "Replacebase" to my favourites and seriously considering tackling an old iPad, (watch this space!)
