Has anyone installed the 10 hour battery
I am about to deploy overseas and could really use the extra time the new battery offers. Has anyone installed the new battery and if so, did you net any additional life on the computer?
Thie upgraded battery works in the 2009 model. This is because the connector is the same and the screw mounts are the same. The problem is finding it is not easy, since Apple does not make it easy to source parts without paying them to install them. You will have to look at sites who risk it by selling OEM Apple parts or look at quality aftermarket batteries. At this point, it will be easier since it has been confirmed the high capacity battery is compatible with the 2010-present MacBook Pro then it was in 2010.
Bruce - There really isn't a 10 hour battery.
What they are talking about is the newer battery has a few more Milli Amp hours in storage. While it will buy you a few minutes more, it won't really lengthen the amount of run time by that much when you put it into the older systems.
You see its more than the battery, it's the about of load the system has. The newer model which intro'ed this newer battery boosted it had a 10 hour run time which is were that came in.
The newer CPU and support chips the newer system had lowered the battery load which is what lengthened the system run time.
Putting the battery into an older system won't really offer the same amount run time. We measured about 10 minutes more in a 2009 MacBook Pro doing very little.
