    The only place to get a genuine battery is from Apple–either by going to the Genius Bar or mailing your computer in for the swap.

    To be clear, they will not sell you a battery by itself. They must perform the installation for you.

    This is where I ordered mine: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008N2UI6I/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It works perfectly as well as the original did. Removal is simple. Take off the bottom, remove 2(or 3 can't remember) screws from the battery, disconnect the wire harness from the logic board, and lift out. Installation is the reverse. It takes about 2 minutes. Although you will need one of THESE if you don't already have one. The screws that hold the battery in place require a Tri Wing screwdriver.
