Can you give us the last four digits of your serial number so we can correctly identify your model. And if you have the P/N of the battery you are thinking of as well.

A 1382 battery should work in a MBP 15" 2010. Both batteries are physically the same size and have the battery connector in the same place. The only difference is that the cable on the A1382 battery is longer than the cable on the A1321 battery.

FYI the battery connectors are different on these two batteries and the A1382 battery will NOT in fact work as it won't go into the connector port- if you look closely there is a small strip of plastic that prevents it from going in
