Has anyone found a source for these batteries that they would recommend? When I search amazon fifty percent o the reviews for any item are 5 while the others are 1.
Why hp dropped this item so quickly and without notice makes one wonder.

Here is a genuine one from a well-regarded seller on eBay:
On amazon.com most of those are "compatible" i.e "knock-off" batteries which are probably fine but just slightly riskier, but usually quite a bit cheaper. I buy the "knock-offs" for older laptops but for anything I relied upon I would not buy anything except genuine. Best to buy from a high-volume seller which gives you some assurance the stock has not been sitting on the shelves for too long, but anything genuine for this model will not have a current manufacture date.
Not sure why you think these were dropped, the MU06 is probably the most common laptop battery on the market, HP just does not stock batteries for models no longer in current production. They ship the batteries out en masse to third party vendors at that point.

Well you have trashed me to the admins and suggested I provided inconsistent information so....
I am not clear what you bought. If you bought from the ebay seller I linked that is a genuine part. Looks like maybe you got a bad battery with a dead cell. It happens even when you buy straight from HP. Contact the seller and get a replacement. The seller on the link I give you have a high ebay rating and will probably cheerfully send a replacement.
