    Seems good - pricey, but batteries always are.

    If you go with it, I would love to hear the results...

    $120 seems reasonable to me. I've paid more than that for Sony camcorder batteries. Wasn't that also about how much the original Apple Powerbook batteries cost, too?

    I may be in need of one, my original 12" PB battery is down to about 45 minutes on a charge now. It was great 4 years ago when it could pull 5 hours on a charge...

    Thats what I was thinking, too. I think you get what you pay for when it comes to batteries. Apple's battery is $129.00 on their website anyway.

    I have one of those OWC batteries for my 12" PB. I was very disappointed. Sure, it had a great capacity to begin with, but it went down to less than 80% of its capacity after only about 2 cycles.

    Did you end up using the OWC battery for awhile or did you buy another Apple battery? Maybe I should just stick with buying another apple battery.
