MacBook Pro Battery

Lately it seems like laptop batteries have gone wild with both Dell and Apple computers having issues. Now Apple has officially issued a “worldwide battery exchange program for certain rechargeable batteries that were sold for use with 15-inch MacBook Pro computer systems from February 2006 through May 2006.” It’s great that they’ve taken corrective action to keep their customers happy, but a little more testing before the quick April release probably could have prevented it. The affected batteries have the model number A1175 and a 12-digit serial number that ends with U7SA, U7SB or U7SC. If you have this defective battery, head over to the exchange program’s website and fill out the form on the right side. You will be asked for your battery’s serial number and shipping information. Apple will send you a replacement battery free of charge and a prepaid shipping label so they can properly dispose of your current battery.
