    I am looking for a good quality replacement battery for my MBP. Battery model is a1281. There are literally hundreds available, but which ones are a good quality piece? Any info or links to the one you guys bought would be awesome. Also, is the original battery a 4600mAh or a 5200mAh? Ive seen both listed as the same a1281 battery. Whats the deal?

    I've always gotten Apple-branded replacement batteries. I just don't trust other companies with something like that. Other companies may claim increased battery life, but how reliable are they? How long will the battery last? Apple integrates Mac OS X with the hardware so tightly, I would just rather have one from Apple (yes, I am aware Apple does not actually make batteries, but instead use ones from Sony and other manufacturers).

    Just my .02 :)

    Keep your .02 :D

    Anyone have a good experience with an after market battery (specifically the a1281)?

    I would never trust a battery that didn't come from Apple.
