When Will OWC MacSales Release Macbook Pro 13″ 2017 Touchbar Replacement Battery From NewerTech

My cousin is facing an issue where his battery for maxed specs Macbook Pro 13″ 2017 is draining so fast. The main issue is that he is living in a country where they don’t have an Apple store. He asked me to find a solution few months ago, but I only found replacement batteries from eBay. Of course I wouldn’t take the risk and buy a nonbranded battery from eBay for safety reasons. Few weeks ago, I found another battery from iFixit, but I had a very bad experience with iFixit battery in the past and wouldn’t take the risk again. OWC MacSales NewerTech Battery is the only battery I would buy, but sadly it doesn’t exist for this model yet. I contacted OWC MacSales customer service, and they told me that they don’t have a plan to release a battery for Macbook Pro 13″ 2017 touchbar so far. The only thing we can do right now is to wait.

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.
