    Any recommendations on where to buy a new battery? What company was selling extended batteries for the same price Apple sells them for?

    OWC (macsales.com) has great replacement batteries. Our company use to replace all brand new laptop batteries with their extended batteries until now as they don't offer MBP batteries yet.

    The number on my battery is A1148. Macsales batteries say

    Apple equivalent replacement part number:

    A1045
    A1078

    Does that mean I can't use them?

    It means those batteries also work. They were the batteries used in similar models of laptop (other processor speeds, etc).
