    Hi guys!

    One quick question.
    Would you trust a new genuine apple battery sold on eBay UK?
    It costs half the price of one on Apple Store, ships from UK.
    My battery is with 70% health according to coconutbattery and it doesn't have the push it used to have anymore (34 months old).

    Cheers!

    I've been using a cheap battery I bought off eBay Uk in my MBP for over a year and it seems just as good as the genuine article.

    The seller was based in Nottingham if that helps.
