    Hi Everyone,

    I have a nearly 2-years-old Dell Inspiron 15 laptop, and the battery is dying. Doesn't hold charge for long - and the "Dell Battery Meter" confirms the battery is nearing end of life.

    Prices from Dell are rediculous. I seem to be able to get an equivalent (probably from the same manufacturer that Dell use, knowing the way these things usually happen) for about 50% to 75% of the Dell price.

    So, does anyone have any experience / recommendations of good (in terms of product quality & service) websites selling laptop battery replacements ? There are so many out there, and I always prefer to go from recommendation that luck ...

    Thanks for any pointers,

    Jon

    97 views and no replies ? Surely someone must have some experience of 3rd-party laptop battery suppliers ?

    Thanks,

    Jon

    I would suggest buying genuine replacement ones. The 3rd-party ones die pretty quick. I replaced my studio 1555 one with a 3rd party one and it died after 10 months.

    Check on ebay, there are sellers offering genuine ones at good prices.
