No one knows, if a later 2009/2010 model 15" MacBook Pro battery will fit into a mid 2009 model?

It looks like the new MBP 15" Early 2009 battery fit the new MBP 15" Early 2010 battery.

MacBook Pro 15" Unibody (Mid 2009/2010) Battery

You'd better ask apple customer to confirm it.

And I find a site to buy this battery with cheaper price only $92.78 USD:

Yes

The part numbers are identical (3ICP5/81/77-2). As machead says, this means that they are compatible.

they are two different batteries, from my research, the mid 2009 15" MBP has a 73-watt-hour non-removable lithium-polymer, and the mid 2010 15" MBP has a 77.5-watt-hour non-removable lithium-polymer. They appear to be the same size, but only question is will the mid 2009 MBP accept the 2010 battery and its larger capacity. If it is compatiable, i would get the 2010 battery hands down. I mean if your gonna pay the same price for battery replacement, might as well get the one with a slight more improvement. but knowing apple, they only want you to use the battery that it was sappose to use for.

The unibody composition also makes these new laptops easier to service and fix, and great for do-it-yourself types who, in the past, have lamented how difficult it was to do things like swap out the hard drive or battery. The redesigned MacBook Pro makes it very easy to access these particular components–just push the lever on the bottom of the case, and you’re in. Upgrading RAM, though, requires removing eight screws
