Has anybody bought a battery from:

A1175 Battery for Apple 15" inch MacBook Pro - eBay (item 140443295696 end time Sep-20-10 00:13:46 PDT)

3 year warranty makes it very appealing...

With a price like that, it's too good to be true.... My advice is to stay away from third party batteries sold on eBay. They are not only inferior, but can actually damage your MBP. Either buy the battery direct from Apple or an authorized reseller like "Other World Computing".
