    I'm looking for a battery replacement for my MacBook Pro and would like some guidance on selecting the correct one. I would like something high quality, obviously, with a high capacity as well. Preferably higher capacity than stock. It doesn't seem to last very long, about 4 hours, but it has 804 cycles on it. Could anyone recommend a good battery that I could pop in there? I've uploaded a couple of screenshots that I hope will provide enough information. Thanks.

    I wouldn't buy a battery from anywhere besides Apple, 3rd party replacements never seem to work out very well.

    That sounds good. I'd prefer an Apple branded battery. But where do I get one? Is that something that Apple has readily available for me?

    You'll likely have to take it to an Apple store to get it replaced.

    I would avoid cheap flebay batteries (I learn't that one the hard way).

    I needed up getting an OWC battery for my '11 MBP which had a slightly higher capacity than stock. While it was a tad more expensive ~AU$170 from memory, I couldn't be happier.

    If you have a pre-retina unibody you just need the tri-lobe screwdriver (comes with OWC batts.). Very easy and takes about 10 mins.

    Of course if you still have apple care on a newer model things are much easier!
