    Too bad I already purchased my secondary battery, or I might have gone for it :(. I'd even be happy with 4 hours instead of the 3 hours I get.

    This is false and misleading.

    ONE of their batteries for the early ibooks has 62% higher capacity.

    If you look at the MBP batteries they offer, they have a 5% increased capacity.

    5% people.

    Yet on the front page, they say "up to 62%" because ONE of their batteries, they were able to more than double the capacity. But not on our MBPs.

    Irritating to see false advertising like that! Altho, even with same capacity, a MBP battery for $99.95 is alot cheaper than buying elsewhere. OTOH, many 3rd party batteries I've bought in the past fail to live up to advertise capacities - I'd stick with Apple's batteries, I think

    True, it just like how apple shows a thumbnail of their 30" cinema displays, but says "From $699"


    Its a common marketing thing...

    You're also thinking about 68% and more than doubling, right? :D
