Where to get a laptop battery?

PostBy: rberq On: Wed Mar 26, 2014 8:14 pm

I need a new battery for my Dell Inspiron 17R (5720) laptop. The original is dying after less than two years. :mad: New from Dell is $110. :mad: :mad:
What is a reliable place (web site) to get a good quality battery for reasonable money? And how do I tell which one to buy when prices range all the way from $20 to $200?

I work on laptops for a living, batteries are one of the things in life you get what you pay for. Find one that has a warranty that is real in case it under performs early in it's life. Amazon often has reputable vendors that stand by their products.

Most are described as 11.1 volts, but some are 10.8 volts. What's that about? :?:

We always match the voltage, the WH are watt hours this can very as batteries can be 6 or 9 cell on the older "last years" systems. The newer systems such as Ultrabooks run a very different battery to meet the criteria for such labels.

Ah, yes, we have an Interstate battery in my wife's car, going on 10 years of age which is unusually good. Unfortunately they don't have the correct laptop battery.
