    Is there any reputable place to buy a replacement battery for my Dell laptop besides DELL.com?

    Thanks

    That was real creative.....
    Of course I did that but how do I know if they are reputable etc.... I don't want to buy a crappy battery.

    I got a generic replacement for my Dell and it's much better than the original battery. There's no maker name on it but the key point is it was "Made in Japan". Panasonic and Sanyo make battery replacement for Dell so I'd start there.
    Fwiw, I got it from here http://www.rowa.co.jp (link in Japanese). Sorry I can't be of more help.

    I've had good luck just searching ebay for the specific batteries I've needed for fizzled out laptop batteries.
