Hey all,

I've searched for threads on this and I can't seem to find much. Does anyone actually have any experience with aftermarket batteries on eBay from ATC supply or any of the other sellers? I'm thinking $40 vs $120 - it's probably worth it if you think there's a 40-50% chance the aftermarket one works well.

Anyone have any input?

There are dozens of threads on this, and the consensus is don't buy any battery that doesn't come from Apple. Too many have reported problems with knockoff batteries.
