Laptop batteries

My wifes laptop needs a new battery. Of course factory batteries are more than the laptop is worth, so i was looking on Ebay for one. Does anyone have any experience with aftermarket laptop batteris, or have a different revenue for a good replacement?

I bought mine on ebay and it was pretty damn cheap... Been working PERFECT! No complaints... I can finally move around without the stupid cord plugged in all the time. Mine use to die within 5 minutes of unpluggin the cord. Now it last for almost 1.5 hours..

Just save money and get a ebay one. they are fine

Most are knockoffs...

I would look for a model number on the battery you are thinking of buying and make sure it isn't a recalled unit before you buy it.

yup most are knockkoffs, i can buy 4 knockoffs for the price of one factory one, those 4 would outlast the 1 good one.


Mine wasnt one that was recalled I looked!

Im guessing you were talking to him cuz I already bought my knockoff

I don't mind buying a knockoff, so long as it works and doesn't screw up her computer. I'm just worried about any disadvantages if there are any.
