I recommend you buy a new one, than trying to find cheaper used one.
Otherwise, you can always check on eBay or other websites.
Don't forget, if your MacBook Pro is still under Apple Warranty, you can get a free replacement.

Beware of sub-$60 batteries on Ebay — enough of them are pure junk to make them not worth the gamble.15" MBP unibody 2.4GHz/4G/250G; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; PTProG3 500MHz/768M/160G, Mac OS X (10.5.8), film and flatbed scanners, projector, graphics tablet, laser and photo printers

Currently Being ModeratedJan 9, 2010 4:45 AM (in response to Andreasweiz)No, batteries are consumables, and are not covered for three years even if you have AppleCare. If a battery is defective, the defect will nearly always show up during the first year and need to be addressed then. Defective batteries are dealt with by Apple on a case-by-case basis, considering their ages, cycle counts, charge capacities and any physical deformations. As I wrote above, it's extremely unlikely that a three-year-old battery will be replaced for free, AppleCare or no.15" MBP unibody 2.4GHz/4G/250G; TiBook 1GHz/1G/120G; PTProG3 500MHz/768M/160G, Mac OS X (10.5.8), film and flatbed scanners, projector, graphics tablet, laser and photo printers
