Sorry if this has been posted before, I tried to search but the search function here isn't working right now.
The battery on my 13" white MacBook is getting pretty bloated and warped, so I need to find a new one. Does anyone have any recommendations for a 3rd party battery? I'm guessing there's a good, cheaper alternative to the Apple batteries, but I couldn't really find any reviews out there.

Killer, thanks. You think they're better than the stock Apple batteries?

Yes, 100% better

Batteries aren't usually covered by the same level of warranty as the rest of the unit,
but they've caught some grief over bulging/leaking scary batteries in macbooks before.
If its > 3 years old, you're probably out of luck.
If its < 3 years, its at the discretion of the GeniusBar guys.
< 1 year, they'll probably just replace it)

It's actually about 4 years old, so I doubt Apple will replace it. But I'm going to try before I buy something.
