More fun with 2011 MacBook Pro battery from ebay
Posted by: prof

I wrote a few weeks back that I purchased a replacement battery for my 2011 MacBook Pro on ebay, and that the battery was taking longer than 10 hours to fully recharge which seemed defective to me. So the seller sent another battery and this one will not boot my macbook pro if the power is not plugged in. The battery is charged at 100% and the macbook pro boots fine with the power adapter plugged in but when I remove it and start up again the apple screen comes up and the progress bar shows that it's loading until the about halfway at which point the screen flashes off and then back on and then the screen goes black and macbook pro does not boot to the login. I've tried Option+Command+P+R and this does not resolve the issue. When I put my original battery from 2011 back in the MBP boots fine without the power adapter connected. This is probably the second of third replacement battery I've bought from different ebay sellers (hoping a different seller would be better). It's hard for me to believe that so many junk batteries get sold like this. Can anyone recommend a reputable replacement battery seller on ebay??

TIA,
prof

Same here. My battery from our sponsor for my 2012 MBP is just under 2 years old and going strong.

Another poorer, cappy hamper w/ sponsor's batteries in their old MBP's....



I was just about to try the (much cheaper) ebay route for a marginal 13" MBA; but now the mental GPS is sending the "rerouting" warning......

Buy it from eshop.macsales.com. I've bought 3 batteries from OWC and none have died so far.

Another Newer Tech battery here from our sponsor - going great.

I'm going to miss being able to buy a battery and put it in my new MBA.
