With some users claiming to see as little as 3 to 6 hours of battery life on a single charge, the amazing MacBook Pro 15 may have one shortcoming in the form of limited battery use. Those using demanding applications such as games and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth will certainly see a reduction in battery life and may find themselves looking for mains power sooner than expected. But power outlets aren't everywhere and being tethered to one is not fun! That is why spare batteries make for great backup when you can't afford to be away from the screen. eBay is here to help with the lowest prices on spare batteries for your MacBook Pro 15.

Genuine vs non-genuine batteries

Many listings on eBay are for non-genuine replacement batteries - sellers will usually state in the listing title or listing description if the battery they are selling is a genuine Apple MacBook Pro 15 battery. If they do not state it is genuine, there is a good chance it isn't. If you're unsure, you can always ask the seller. Non-genuine batteries may function perfectly well in your MacBook Pro, but you won't be covered by an Apple warranty. There is also a chance using a non-genuine battery could void the Apple warranty on your MacBook Pro too. Non-genuine batteries are usually cheaper and some of them offer higher battery capacity than genuine batteries, making them a great alternative for some users.

The right fit

As even MacBook Pro 15s differ from year to year and model to model, be sure that the battery you are buying will suit your laptop. Visually comparing your battery with the listing image may help with initially identifying the correct battery, but to be 100% you should always check the listing description before you buy to see if your specific model is listed. If you are still unsure, you can always ask the seller.
