Do You Use Original MacBook Batteries
The simple answer is no, we would love to, but Apple does not make batteries easily available to third party repair centres. Owing to the fact apple do not sell batteries to 3rd parties you must question any company who claims to do so. Most of the so called original batteries available online are counterfeit or second user, you would be hard pushed to see a cosmetic difference, the fakes could easily pass as original.
At best the so called original MacBook battery replacements are just low quality and wont last long, or second hand batteries reprogramed to show as new with 0 cycles, however these can also be extremely dangerous, a quick look on YouTube at lithium battery explosions will show you that, and if its fake to start with the producer isn’t going to be to concerned with safety.
