Macbook Pro 15 inch 2015 Replacement Battery – Macsales OWC NewerTech Vs iFixit

After my horrible experience with iFixit battery, I decided to try another battery from Macsales OWC, The battery is called NewerTech 95W NuPower, and this specific one is for 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display (Late 2013 to Mid 2015). This battery is cheaper than the one I bought from iFixit by $20, so it is worth trying it out. It turns out that this battery is really amazing and I don’t face any of iFixit battery issue where the battery read the actual battery percentage and there is no sudden drops from 80% or 70% to %7. Also I no longer face losing the charge when closing the lid. This battery hold the charge for a very long time, and so far it is equivalent to the original Macbook battery when I first bought the laptop.

I am very happy for Macsales OWC, because they always sell high quality products and I have been buying their ssd and ram for Macbook Pro for a very long time.

Terrible Replacement Battery For Macbook Pro 15 inch 2015 From iFixit

I recently replaced the battery for my 2015 Macbook Pro 15 inch. I bought the battery from iFixit which I totally regret, because it is a piece of trash. My battery after a usage of 4.5 years was about 2 hours, and after replacing the battery from iFixit I still get 2 hours. The problem is that the percentage stays at 80% or 70% for a while and suddenly drop to 7%. My previous battery never had this issue, so I paid $110 for a lower performance battery. Also when I close the lid, the battery doesn’t hold the charge at all. When I saw the reviews on iFixit website, I thought that I will be getting a great product. It wasn’t the case, and lesson learned.

I will never buy a battery from iFixit again.
