    Replacement Laptop battery - Where to buy?

    Hey all.
    I'm trying to track down a spare battery pack for a Compaq C310EA laptop. HP parts doesnt seem to have them. Currys Parts Master does, but at an insane amount of money. There are plenty of sites I've never heard of on google selling them at ~£40 and pages of eBay listings, but its hard knowing whats decent and whats cheap tat. Anyone advise a specific company? Preferebly that you've had some experience with. TBH I have no idea where to start

    Thanks

    Just care more about the battery cells and warranty. some of them make with used cell and new plastic, and the battery won't work after short time warranty.

    Mehmeh - I think Googling will be your best bet - there are a number of outlets selling replacement battery packs (the one above appeared to be a front for a HK outfit) I'd be wary of E bay - these sort of things just attract the con artists (high value, hard to track down if it doesn't work out) so it is probably paying a little more and getting it from a UK registered company where at least you have protection from UK legislation.
