    Hey guys,
    I have recently thought about replacing my current battery with a new one, and have a question:
    Will a battery from a newer MacBook Pro 13" (late 2010) fit my MacBook Pro 13" (mid 2009)?
    The only difference I've found is in capacity, everything else seems quite the same, including dimensions.

    The original battery that came with the MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2009) was 60Wh, but Apple has since replaced that with the 63.5Wh battery that ships in the current MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2010), so if your battery in a Mid '09 fails under warranty, it will be replaced with the battery in the Mid '10.

    Yes, the batteries for the two machines are compatible.


    Note: These things should get you 1000 cycles. You sure yours is bad?

    i have the service battery error at 140 cycles. only holding 77% according to coconut battery. my warranty ended in october. you think apple will replace it free as a defective battery? cause thats really low for so few cycles. i have the mid 2009 macbook pro 13in too.

    I'm so confused how you could get a legitament 3-4 cycles a day.

    are you actually draining your battery, charging it, then draining it again four times each day?

    Plugging in when the battery level is less then 15%, charging it up to full.
    I work a lot with images and videos, so battery lasts less then 2-2.5 hours.
