    Hello everyone, I have a Macbook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo from 2007. According to CoconutBattery, I've had 611 batter-load cycles and the age of my laptop is 38 months. Max battery is 3205 mAh, and original is 5600. I use this computer mostly for school and during classes to take notes. I need longer battery life to get all the way through my longest class which is 3 hours. I have done some online searching and have found 3 choices for higher capacity replacement batteries.

    Fastmac - http://store.fastmac.com/product_info.php?products_id=3
    NuPower - http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/apple_laptop/batteries/MacBook
    AGPteK - http://agptek.com/Battery-For-Apple-80-52-1.html#1

    The AGPtek batter has 5800 mAh, which is the highest capacity that I know of. Do any of you have experience with any of these batteries, and are there any other high capacity batteries out there?

    Thanks for all of your help,
    NEEL

    Buy two Apple batteries. Third-party batteries are unreliable and can damage your machine.

    Any battery will work just fine. I've used NuPower and BTI (which I got from TigerDirect), and they both have worked great in different machines.
