    I wouldn't use any 3rd-party battery ... but that's just me.

    I agree. I would never trust a battery not provided by Apple.

    yeah as most have said most 3rd party batteries suck. but i think i have heard of some good ones in the past. youll just have to read the reviews and such, do a little research.

    oh and any pics your white to black swap??

    NewerTech is the only 3rd party battery I would trust. I have 2 of them and they work great. The one in my MacBook is only a few weeks old, but the one in my PowerBook is more than a year old and it's going almost as strong as when I first got it.

    They fit great and I've not had any issues with them fitting or matching color.

    Apple or NewerTech for me.

    I've had good luck with NewerTech batteries in the past.

    YMMV.
