    Hey guys,

    I have an older (2009 Macbook pro 2.26). I was just wondering if the new, better battery from the refreshed april 2010 macbook pros are interchangeable (Can I buy a newer april2010 macbook pro battery and put it in my 2009 macbook pro?)
    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks

    Better question is where you would get the battery. Apple won't sell it.

    Also, it is not so much the battery that is responsible for more hours, it's the computer itself that draws less power. If the new 13" MBP runs 10 hours with the new battery, it would have run 9 1/2 hours with the old one. It just uses less power.

    If you are having a problem with the battery and it is still under warranty Apple will fix it for you.
