    The battery on my unibody MBP (late 2008) died.

    Now I need to replace it. I need a battery that has a longer life than the stock battery. (I need it to hold more charge than the normal battery, which lasted 2.5 hours before turning off.)

    I also need it to be high quality and I need it to last long before it breaks.

    Any recommendations or advice?

    I found this on Amazon. Is it any good? http://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Battery-MacBook-Aluminum-Unibody/dp/B003EWPF9M/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1282675918&sr=8-3

    Buy an Apple battery. 3rd party batteries are unreliable and can cause lots of damage. If you need more battery life, buy two.

    By battery life I did not mean product lifespan, I meant the time it takes for the battery to empty out.
