    A whole lot of "genuine" MacBook batteries on eBay and I'm wondering if any of them could be legit.
    Can anyone recommend a good seller?
    Should I forget trying to find a genuine Apple battery and just go with an aftermarket one from Amazon or OWC?
    Any recommendations there?
    Thanks

    Nobody else than apple sell the non-user replaceable batteries.

    Those that report being genuine on eBay (From chinese sellers) are probably made from the same factory, but they are not true OEM batteries. I bought 2 from alixpress, and I noticed a few differences between the original one and the replacement.

    Honestly, I would just get a replacement, about 50$ shipped from Amazon.
