    What would you recommend to get ?

    Is it just a battery that you need?

    If that's the case, don't buy a "cheap" one (from eBay or elsewhere). They go bad on you too quickly.

    Spend just a little more and get one from a place like ifixit.com.

    @kohsamui100 - I'm not sure what your budget is, but if you're in California or another state where Apple has to keep service parts for products <7 years old, take it to an Apple Store or another authorized Apple Repair Center. You'll get a new 90 warranty on the battery, have it installed by a professional, and it will be oem. If you search online, it's about $130 for a new battery installed at an Apple Store.
