I need to get a new battery for my macbook, the battery model is the A1185. Would it be safe to get something like this or is it an inferior product than what I would get paying 3x as much from apple?

Thanks

Personally I wouldn't buy from apple, 100 for a laptop battery is ludicrous but just make sure you do your research on the new battery.
Check reviews, see what mistakes other people have made so you don't make one yourself!

Purchasing from Amazon should be OK, however, that battery is used. Do not purchase a used battery since you don't know its condition. I recommend purchasing a new battery from OWC. They're Mac specialists and stock batteries for most Mac model machines.
