After 4 weeks battery is performing as well as original one.

BillyB Posted on 30/01/2019

The battery was delivered in good time. I followed the You Tube instructions on installation. The battery is excellent and was 68% charged on receipt and charged to 100% after about an hour. The installation tools are to small and very difficult to use if you come up against a screw that was stiff. I recommend you MUST get proper screwdrivers. Nevertheless I give the battery performance 10/10 after 2 weeks usage.

Matt Posted on 20/01/2019

Fantastic price, great customer service. Battery works brilliantly - it even came with the special screwdrivers needed to do the job.

James Bedford Posted on 07/12/2018

Installed fine and works perfectly showing 100% after a weeks use

Burhan Salih Posted on 30/11/2018

Fantastic product identical to original no problems so far very happy and great price.

Will Posted on 29/11/2018

I hunted high and low to find a genuine Apple battery but they were all either fakes or the genuine ones were hugely over priced at similar levels to Apple's own battery service. This OEM battery from Replacebase arrived very quickly and is identical to the original battery and shows up correctly in the system report as being from the same manufacturer and shows correct cycle, rating etc. Buy with confidence. My first purchase from Replacebase but they will now be my go to supplier!

No Plan B Posted on 25/11/2018

I waited for a month before posting, this battery for all appearances is identical in fit and finish to the original Apple battery, maybe a touch lighter. Coconut Battery indicates it’s Simplo made same as the orig Apple, fresh made two months prior, and arrived stored at 60% charge exactly as it should be. Lots of trepidation reading about options and travails on the internet which of course amplifies the negative, but this is performing exactly like the original. Flawless boot, seen as new by the SMC, and then I calibrated as suggested on various sites. I have the same total capacity if not more than the orig when new, if it lasts 6 years and >1000 charges like the orig it will be a blockbuster purchase, even if 2/3s of that for the price it will be fantastic given the few other options and lifetime left in a 2011 MBP, fingers crossed but indications are good. RB showed great communication and fast and easy ship to Italy. Hats off to RB, really glad I found you.

Will Posted on 16/11/2018

Battery had swelled and I thought lap top was toast. Found this replacement online and was delivered quickly and with everything I needed to fit the new battery. Now have my lap top back and running with a new lease of life

Macuser Posted on 12/11/2018

Exact replacement for my macbook pro 2012 has stopped all the issues that I was having with it. Would recommend Replacebase to anyone who wants a OeM battery, prompt delivery and service.

Patrick Posted on 05/11/2018

3 months in and it seem the same as original

Carlos S. Posted on 29/10/2018

Great service, excellent product. Even brought the screw driver for the Macbook Pro battery screws. Very impressive, will definitely buy again from this store.

Matt Posted on 04/10/2018

After speaking to apple and being told they won’t touch my MacBook Pro and can’t get any parts for it because they class it as vintage, I was very relieved to find replace base! I got my new battery the next day and fitted as per an instructional video on YouTube, I’ve calibrated it and it seems to be working like a dream so far (around 2 weeks) my 8 year old machine that works fine has now got a brand new lease of life and doesn’t need to be charged constantly. Totally recommend doing this, what a bargain.

DER Posted on 13/09/2018

Great service, received the battery very promptly within a one hour delivery window. The battery is an exact replacement and works perfectly both charging and working. Fitted to a Macbook Pro mid 2012 i5

Mike Posted on 12/09/2018

Very pleased with the battery. Has added a new lease to my old laptop. Battery lasts about 6-7 hours and hold 6063 mAh. Needs to be fully charged then fully discharged a couple of times to achieve this.

jenny Posted on 30/08/2018

Excellent service - prompt next day delivery on time to the minute! Laptop now working like new. I had to use google for fitting advice - an enclosed leaflet would be useful. The first google I accessed didn't mention the calibration (is that the word?) of the battery to extend the life. Fortunately another u-tube did. However it might not be possible to access a u-tube about it all if computer not working, hence suggestion re the leaflet! I'd heartily recommend this site for a mac replacement battery - saved me a fortune and it was easy for an amateur to fit - the addition of gift screwdrivers was a bomus!

David Posted on 16/07/2018

Yes this battery fits, and installation is easy. However, this battery did not perform well at all. Upon closer inspection it had the same serial number as another cheap/knock-off battery I bought from eBay, so I suspect they came from the same manufacturer. This battery will behave well for first few cycles but after 10-20 health drops rapidly. Unfortunately as apple do not offer an alternative you don't have much choice.. but limit your expectations over the long term.

Peter M Posted on 28/06/2018

OEM battery for MacBook Pro was over £100 so looked around and found Replacebase who supplied battery at a fraction of this price. Battery arrived very quickly and came complete with special screwdrivers needed to install. So far seems to be working perfectly.

dwrenn Posted on 20/06/2018

fitted fine, recognised by laptop, and seem to be getting 4 hours charge, but I guess time will tell. I'm pleased with this purchase.

Tim Posted on 19/05/2018

Looked around and found posts of dodgy websites selling batteries. I came across Replace Base and theory battery has made my MacBook Pro good as new and the customer service was excellent. Thanks.

Tim Posted on 16/05/2018

Did a good bit of looking round/research and finally decided upon using ReplaceBase for my Macbook Pro replacement battery and i am so glad i did. From the beginning it was an easy transaction from an easy site to navigate, easy to order with a very quick, well packed order, could not ask for more. Now the battery came with about 60% charge in it. I drained and completely recharged, drained again with another complete recharge and the battery works a treat, i get a good 4 hours out of it non stop which is more than ample. Well happy with this company and well happy with my purchase. Will defiantly recommend to friends and family and will definitely use again.

Wigwham Posted on 12/05/2018

Brought this after much research and was really pleased with the service and product! OEM product too! Easy to install on my laptop to. Do note that the battery comes with the necessary screw drivers which l was unaware of :-) so your set to go!

Franklin Posted on 20/04/2018

Good value for money battery. Lasts between 3-5 hours depending on use. Installed on an early 2011 MacBook Pro. Would purchase from replace base again. To get the most out of your battery i'd advise charging it fully, then plug out the charger and run the battery down until the computer goes into sleep mode (also turn off any energy saving prefs). Then plug in the charger, switch the computer off, and do an SMC reset. Now charge the computer back to 100%

Tony Gubby Posted on 13/04/2018

Brilliant service, delivered promptly and has made my 2010 Mac book pro work like new.

Raj Posted on 13/04/2018

Battery is excellent value and after 1 month is performing as the original Apple battery.

Ali Abbas Hasham Posted on 27/03/2018

Cheapest reliable battery I could find for my 2010 Macbook Pro. Only OEM product I could find too. Made my 8 Yr old laptop run like new with an easy 6-8hr battery life depending on use. Very happy with product and company. Would highly recommend and use again

Paul Posted on 27/02/2018

This battery is really great value and has revived my dear old 2009 MacBook Pro which was about to go for scrap! I fitted it over 2 weeks ago and fully charged it. Just powered it up still at 100%. Great company to do business with!

V Mistry Posted on 22/02/2018

Fantastic price, great customer service. Battery works brilliantly - it even came with the special screwdrivers needed to do the job. Thought my laptop was on its last legs but this will hopefully give it at least another few years of life yet.

Aleksi Posted on 19/02/2018

I've been using the battery for a week now and calibrated it few times. At the moment it is too early to say anything conclusive but battery holds 5770mah charge according to coconut battery and I get run time of around 2-4 hours. Battery is around 20g lighter than original apple battery if someone is interested in that. Manufacturer is Simplo.

N Qureshi Posted on 14/02/2018

Fits and working fine in an a Macbook Pro 8,1 (13 inch early 2011) with voltages and watt hours as specified. It is now at 8 cycles and no problems. Competitive price and fast delivery. Particularly appreciated the 1 hour delivery slot information from the courier. Second purchase from Replacebase and would buy again from them.

Product Questions

Sort by ASC

According to my understanding of the product description, there should be at least 980 charge cycles left on this battery (98% of 1000). Please could you confirm this is correct?

Kind Regards
I own a mid 2012 Mac Book Pro 13 inch:

Serial number: C2QK4ATNDTY3

Is this the right battery?
