    here's the back story. I've got a white 13" macbook i got in 2007. I noticed my mouse button and trackpad were acting funny, so i took it in to the genius bar and they said i needed a new battery because i've got the typical battery buldge, which would run me $130.

    i went the aftermarket route, as i could not justify spending that much for a battery for a almost 4 yr old laptop. I got a battery from laptopmate and after my computer recognizing it for only 5-10 minutes, i checked my system profiler

    here's the info from system profiler

    Battery Information:

    Charge Information:
    Charge remaining (mAh): 0
    Fully charged: No
    Charging: Yes
    Full charge capacity (mAh): 0
    Health Information:
    Cycle count: 0
    Condition: Normal
    Battery Installed: Yes
    Amperage (mA): 0
    Voltage (mV): 0

    anyone have a suggestion as to what aftermarket battery company makes the best?
