Hello guys!
For a lot of months i get some funky readings from coconut battery App about my battery so i presume is dead.
It charges for 10 seconds and then stops.Stand-by time about ....3 mins :eek:
So i decided to buy a new one but third party.I can't afford 120 euros for an original one.I also googled a bit and found a lot of sites in uk that sell batteries for macs in excellent price!
Also,can i "rebuild" my old one?

Like this one http://tinyurl.com/deyomz
Should i buy it?Any recommendation or experience?

Thank you very much!

Before you commit to a new battery, which you may well need, first try calibrating your battery using Apple's instructions which can be found here (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490).
