If about the same voltage, yes.

But if there is any lesson here it is to avoid non-maker batteries. I will not write again why.

Original

It's good to know that they are same voltage and size but nevertheless it is always best to get the original battery. Alternative, you can try to get OEM battery.

I shouldn't buy it, if I were you.
http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs.html states it has a "Built-in 77.5-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery". And http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/battery/ tells it's non-removable and rechargeable up to 1000 times.

The battery you link to says it's 10.8 V and 66 mAh. That's 65-watt-hour, so it has less capacity. And being a standard Li-ion battery it won't recharge 1000 times.

So better stick to the original!
