1536 charge cycles. It died an extremely slow death eh?
iFixIt is a fairly reliable source for parts and guides.

I am not aware of any good third party batteries for your MBP. Bite the bullet and spend the money at the Apple store. Every cheap knockoff has proven to be more expensive in the long run.
Your battery has served you extremely well. I hope the replacement will do the same.

It certainly was a slow death. It gets used a lot.
I will use iFixIt and hope that this replacement restores my Macbook to it's original, long lasting glory! - and avoids horror stories of replacing batteries.
