After a few weeks of usage I gave good feedback as there were not problems with the battery The first battery expanded too much. I would go to your local Apple Store right away as a past Apple Genius that would be replaced in most cases your battery should never do that. Actually, that's pretty normal for an old battery or a battery that's been used heavily.

AppleCare may replaced your battery under a Customer Satisfaction Code, but that depends on the mood of the AppleCare representative that you talk to at the time. If your MacBook Pro is still in warranty and you take it to an Apple Store with a third-party battery I highly doubt they'll do any repairs under warranty - Apple is pretty tight regarding third-party components. I'd avoid getting a third-party battery and just stick with one you buy from an Apple Store or an Apple Authorised Reseller.

Nov 1, PM in response to lundejd In response to lundejd I don't know the market conditions today. I worked for several authorized retailers of name-brand 'Personal Computers' in the 's and 's. Back then, authorized computer resellers had to meet rigid sales quotas in dollars or units, or both, to keep their 'authorized dealer' status. Many dealers also used to 'floorplan' inventory. The dealer would finance the inventory via a firm, such as General Electric Capital.

Instead of tying up money in inventory, a dealer could pay a small percentage of the dealer cost to GE Capital for several months, in anticipation of selling the unit before the full amount was due, in 60 or 90 days. Some manufacturers offered dealers 'free' floorplan for 60 to 90 days, so the authorized dealer would have demo units of the latest models in the showroom at no cost.
