Macbook Battery

Hi all,

I recently picked up a secondhand macbook from a friend to use whilst I'm traveling, just wondering if anyone knows if you can buy long life batteries for macbooks at all? and if so any recommendations? Struggling to find any manufacturers of them - has Apple prevented anyone else from making them? :confused:

Thanks,
Greg

Ahh the good old Amazon! next you'll be telling me to Google it! :D
Has anyone tried any of those available on Amazon?

Thanks,
Greg

on the topic of macbook batteries: apparently, after 300 plug-ins to the wall, the battery is programed to terminate...?

Just searched that up as was intrigued, and found this post:
I'm using a 15" powerbook that has gone through 288 cycles and is at 92% of its original capacity after 18 months. You can keep an eye on things with coconut battery if you're worried about it. It's a nice little app. I'd say you've got a lot of life in your battery, yet.
Might have to try and get that app or a similar one...
