The battery works in all models of MacBook Pro. It uses Lithium-Polymer cells and features integrated charge indicator LEDs like AppleÕs own battery. FastmacÕs TruePower batteries sport sensors inside the battery that detect undesirable levels of swelling and short circuits that power off the battery in extreme conditions.

Fastmac expects to ship the battery within the next 10 days. It comes with a one-year warranty and 30-day money back guarantee.
