Does anyone know where you can purchase the battery itself? To get apple to do it you have to make a genius appointment etc and I would rather just replace it myself if I can source one.

They're based in the US, but anyway iFixit sells 'em - MacBook Air Parts - iFixit (http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts/MacBook-Air#0-Batteries)

I didn't think the battery for a MacBook Air was user-replaceble and that only Apple (service desk) could do it => Genius Bar appt

speaking from experience, the battery in a macbook air is easily replaceable. There's 8 screws holding on the bottom of the case and several more holding the battery in place but other than that there's nothing stopping you pulling out the old battery and putting in a new one.
