Check out seller before buying
on January 4, 2009
Warning: as they do with many things, Amazon lumps all reviews of this battery together, irrespective of who the seller is. Some sellers sell brand new batteries, some sell used or refurbished or non-Apple batteries. This you can see from some of the other reviews. Read the description carefully, to see what the seller that YOU are dealing with is offering. I got mine from "Nextop2100". They sold an authentic Apple OEM battery (new), but in bulk packaging. The battery I received was brand new, made by Apple, exactly what I wanted.
If you're not sure what you're ordering, email the seller and ask!
Oh, and in case you haven't figured this out yet: most non-book items sold on Amazon.com are NOT sold by Amazon; they are sold by third parties. It's like buying on eBay, but somewhat more reliable (if you don't get what was described, Amazon will help you out). Near the top of the page it will say "Ships from and sold by (name of vendor)".
