    Hi all - is the Apple store the only place to get a new Apple Battery? Specifically, my 15" MBP is a year old and the battery now only lasts about 30 minutes or so. The computer is past warranty and I dont have applecare (though I don't think batteries are covered anyway).

    I just wanted to check and see if there was any hidden treasure you all knew about for getting a 15" MBP battery.
    thanks!

    FastMac has some high-capacity replacement batteries at a lower price point than the standard Apple batteries.

    This might still be covered if you're a few weeks out of warranty, a battery shouldn't lose charge that fast in one year I don't believe. Have you contacted Apple about it already? They're sometimes quite flexible about that sort of stuff.
