    Welcome to Apple Discussions!

    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.

    Hope this helps!

    It's extremely unlikely that Apple will replace a three-year-old battery under any circumstances, unless it has been recalled.

    Beware of sub-$60 batteries on Ebay — enough of them are pure junk to make them not worth the gamble.

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot we are 2010... What I was thinking is 2006 with an appcare, they can change it...
    But if it's a week or two after it expires, apple make exceptions.

    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.
