    Hello!

    My old battery (over 2 years old) started to loose its capacity and started to bulge. So, I ordered from the Apple Philippine Online Store a new battery. I ordered it on June 30 and it arrived on July 2. It was arrived earlier than what the Apple Website said (July 7).

    So I thought of sharing little unboxing pictures.

    I hope you like them! :)

    Nice photos. Even something as mundane as a battery, Apple packs it pretty. :)

    A question though, have you tried asking for replacement for the batteries? I know 2 years is beyond warranty but I believe that Apple replaces them because the bulging is plainly a factory defect.

    may I ask if you pay only the price on Apple Online Store? any added taxes or duties from our local customs?

    planning to order few cables and accessories but don't want any surprises when package arrived.

    also any experience on ordering a computer? are taxes & duties included already or bahala na when it landed?

    thanks,

    I had not tried yet contacting Apple, although I could use another battery. ;)
    Thanks. :)

    Yup. Same here. No additional charges were made on the credit card, the price charged was the same as the one on the apple online store.
    Sadly, I have yet to try buying a computer online. On experience, the stores like Ynzal and Digital Walker tend to be cheaper than the prices on the Apple Online Store.
