Laptop Battery replacement type help

  dawnstaples 18:15 22 Apr 2007

I have just bought a 2nd hand iQon laptop model 8050q but it does not have a battery fitted. on visiting the company web site it appears that the company is Kaput????
and I can not find any mention of my model on the sites I have visited to buy a replacment not having the battery part no does not help .
Can anyone help with my problem ie does anyone have the same model if so can you tell me the part no or am I right in thinking that most laptops are based around very few different models and manufacturs just customise them if so does anyone know what other makes battery will fit etc.
Details taken from underside of unit... iQon laptop model 8050q
power supply input 19v....3.42amp
power subsystem 6 cell Li-ion battery pack

iQon products are still be offered for sale in a number of UK outlets and its website may just be down because of maintenance.

This US firm may be able to advise (it repairs the products) if you e-mail it:
