I have an older MacBook with an A1181/A1185 battery in matte black. I need to replace it. The last one I bought off Amazon didn’t last long. Ive read that I should buy from a reputable company with at least a one year warranty. Those batteries cost $70 and up. I found another company that has one for $31.95 with a 1 year warranty and I can pay like $6.95 more for an extra year. Don’t know if this is good.

Please let me know your thoughts.

At some point, that computer is going to show its age. My father has one and I ended up putting Chrome OS on it. It was zippy when I did, but he wasn't ready to learn a new OS, even if it's pretty straightforward. If $30 gets you a year, I'd say that's pretty good. At worst, you drop $30 each year until you decide it's not a computer worth keeping.
