Default Where to buy a Dell Laptop Battery?

I need a new battery for a Dell Inspiron 6000 but I am a bit reluctant
to pay Dell's extortionate price.

A search on the web throws up a number of sites, but most of them seem
to be based in HK, or not have any real contact address at all.

I'd appreciate any suggestions on a UK supplier who will provide a
reliable and good quality battery.

TIA

Hi Lorenz,

Well spotted about the HK link. becoming a big problem foreign
companies using the .co.uk domain.

Have used http://www.laptopshop.co.uk/ in the past. I actually had to
use their customer service as the battery failed after 10 months.
Replaced very quickly with no argument. Will use them every time even
if they are not the cheapest. Good CS is getting hard to find these
days and if those that supply it do not get supported, we are ALL
stuffed.

Cheers,

Default Advice Needed: Where to buy a Dell Laptop Battery?

(Apologies if you get this message twice.)

Can anybody suggest a reliable UK source where I can buy a battery for
a Dell laptop?

Default THANKS: Where to buy a Dell Laptop Battery?

Thanks to Conor, DC and DrTeeth for the suggestions.

What puzzled me no end was that a significant number of apparently
different sites all led to a single company (Zanut Limited) with an
address at Big Yellow Self Storage Unit 1 1000 North Circular Road
London NW2 7JP

Tried mdsbattery.co.uk?

I've had several (non laptop, mainly UPS) batteries from them with no
problems.

I have used them in the past & can vouch for them. Having said that cheap
batteries from China on Ebay are a fraction of the price and represent far
better value for money.
