Dell wants $155 for a 6 cell battery. was wondering if theres other stores that sell them for less.
its possible, but god knows how to find them.
Ebay often has cheap batteries, but odds are the quality wont be as good as the official ones.
IMO avoid second hand ones and only get new batteries, you never know how bad they will be til they arrive.
i found this site here http://www.laptopcharge.ca/category/notebook battery/dell/inspiron 1501/lde203x.aspx
check e-bay I just bought a new one for my MacBook Pro, it looked just like the old one and came with a 3 year warranty....
I just bought a laptop battery that Dell wanted $135, for $40 including shipping from batteryedge.com
Don't forget to hunt for coupon codes. It saved me an extra $6
eh too much work. its my dads money, its for his laptop after all
Yeah, but your Dad will be impressed if you get him a battery for 10% of the Dell cost by spending about 1 minute checking for coupon codes. Shows fiscal responsibility.
Well 42.90 US, plus duty and more shipping to get it here. probably better to go with the canada site i found.
I have a used battery, idk about the condition since it hasnt been charged for 2 1/2 months... for E15XX don't remember model, I'd want 9$ + ship, could sell you my broken (screen broke) laptop (exluding DVDRW and HDD) for 19$ + ship, in CAD ofc
My experience is that buying batteries and or chargers from these types of sites are hit or miss, some give you crap, others give you almost the real thing
make such offers in PM's, kthxbai.
I usually go with BatteriesPlus, they usually have good quality batteries, and if they don't have it in the store they can order it.
Doubted he was interested and I was lazy lol
Yeah my dads ordered the battery anyway. And i want something that says new, i know he would as well.
i got one for my moms on ebay for like 20 some shipped wanted to get a bigger cell on but they didnt make one for heres but comes with 3 year warranty
