I just got a replacement out-of-warranty MacBook Pro battery installed by Apple in two days for $129. Prices go up depending on the model, as specified here:My advice: be careful. Last year I replaced the battery in my old MacBook Pro, and it took three attempts to get a battery whose actual mAh capacity matched the advertised rating. The first two batteries both held less than the used Apple battery I was replacing! Fortunately, both vendors accepted a return without (much) hassle.
The one I finally kept was this one. Note that I can't guarantee that this battery fits your specific model of MacBook Pro. Please check the specs before ordering.
But I have to say this is a no-brainer for me, if you can get that quick turnaround and deal with being away from your device for a bit - a rare case of Apple charging reasonable prices in my opinion.Apple said:
Last year i did several replacements myself without incident. Even though they were highly rated names you trust, 2 of 3 of them swelled and failed within a year.
