    Hi, I'm about to send my MBP 2011 15' to Apple for GPU failure repairing. Apple extended the warranty for the repair. Does it cover replacing the battery as well?

    Most likely not, but never hurts to ask. I think its around $130 to replace the battery if you are charged for it

    I will say no, the battery is not a part of the repair to fix the GPU issue. A repair exception normally would be to cover the repair as listed. That may be all you get.
    However, that doesn't prevent the repair center from determining through testing that the battery also needs to be replaced. That can happen sometimes, along with other parts.

    Perhaps you will be pleasantly surprised (or you just have a working graphics card again :D )

    No. Why would it? GPU is not related to your battery.

    I'm happy to report that Apple replaced the battery and keyboard as well. If you are going to send yours, and planning to get a new battery, you should ask Apple to replace it. YMMV, but asking is a free option.
