from usa, I plan to send a battery for my friend who is stationed in asia... (the battery is not working right and his phone is mostly unusable because of that and he does not have proper access to quality electronics where he is stationed)

(are all apple hardwares the same across the world?)

would you recommend if the below is decent? any better quality ones you can recommend?  (assuming it does not have to be apple's.. if yes, then I will consider apple also, yes)

It appears to be decent. It has a one year warranty which is good for a battery. I do not know how worldwide that is. I would say "give it a try". Apple gets their batteries from someone - they do not make their own batteries so far as I know.

It looks OK as well. It is on sale and otherwise roughly the same price as the first one. This second one has a one year warranty.

I think you can make Amazon accept a return if you decide not to use it for some reason (unopened of course).
