Post subject:  Nonstandard battery issue questions

Hello, first post.

I'm having a strange issue with my battery. I've read a lot of people having their batteries go bad but my problem is not of this nature.

Sorry, but this will be slightly long winded

I have a mid 2010 13" Macbook Pro. I spilled a beverage on my keyboard recently, and over the weekend I took it apart and replaced the entire top case. (The keyboard was very funky, and when I plugged in an external USB keyboard the entire machine seemed to run 100% perfectly). Upon putting it back together however, I turned it on and it worked, however, it ran very slow. I soon noticed that it was no longer recognizing the battery at all. Of course, I took it apart to see if I didn't reconnect the battery properly but I am quite sure I did.

So my question is, should I buy a new battery and see if it works or did I somehow mess up the motherboard's connection to the battery? (I did my best to be super delicate with all of the connecting components). If I should purchase a new battery, is it okay to use a much more cheaply priced third party battery, or should I pay more for one made by Apple? Finally, as I mentioned, upon putting my machine back together, it suddenly runs much more slowly; could this be caused by the lack of battery or did I do something else to it (and what could that be)?

Any tips or experiences would be greatly appreciated.
