Laptop Battery

I need a new battery for my laptop. There plenty of companies around that have them but I am a wary of dealing with companies that I've never heard of. Can anyone recommend a reputable company?

Go to and look for the laptop battery there being sold by Cambridge Accessories - I have used them twice and their prices and service is first class. You will need to check the exact size of the pin details but if you`re not sure I suggest you e-mail them.

Unfortunately they didn't have my battery.
Global-Batteries do have it, I have never heard of them but that doesn't mean much! Anyone have experience of them?

Tell me the make and model of the laptop or the part number of the battery. I`ll check with some of my other suppliers. To be honest I think that most of the amazon suppliers are trustworthy but let`s see.

It's a Compaq(HP) C300 Part Number of battery is 395751-321 Global do it and they advertise on this site, does that mean they are ok?

Thanks for your help.

I always check the information in `About Us` (generally at the bottom of the site page) as it gives a fair amount of information on a company - especially the address and `phone number.

Often a quick telephone call to assess the Customer Service will give confidence or putting the company name into a search engine will provide either good or bad reports.

I have ordered one from Global,checked their site and customer services and they seem ok.

Thanks all of you for your advice.
