Question Battery replacement for model A1304

My battery started saying "replace soon" yesterday and I've been searching for a new battery since then but everyone says that they fit to models A1245 which is apparently the older macbook air because mine is the newest model (bought last spring when the update came) and this is A1304.

I tried to ask from these websites would the battery work on mine air even though it has a different model number but they wanted me to post pictures of my battery (which I can't because I don't have the screwdriver for it yet) and then they asked "original battery part number, voltage ,capacity and your laptop model" where I can only answer to the last one so not that helpful to reply anything.

I'm not that familiar with the apple insides so I thought that you might help me with this.
And as said, I don't have a possibility to use a screwdriver until after..somewhere in the middle of June when I'm ready to change the battery.

This is the website where I would buy it because I found it to be the cheapest (don't understand french or germany so they are out even though I might find cheaper prices from there).

Ok, I figured it out so migh as well share it here if someone else has same problems in the future.

So you need to look at the battery capacity to know which model does the battery suit.
5200 mAh is for the older models and 5400 mAh is for the mid 2009 models.
Just don't care about the A1245, because it's the same for all the batteries at least now.
