Laptop battery - suppliers

I have been searching for a battery for my son`s laptop (Toshiba Satellite A60 106) and have identified three possible sources. Has anyone any experience of these companies or knows of other sources which they can recommend.

Thanks in anticipation.

I have an Advent.

Having visited the site that Sold Advent approved batteries, I then looked around the net and found a suitable battery, It works well.

However, The original battery had the compartment cover built into it and that end of the cheap one is different, so it looks a bit odd.

As my Laptop is for work only, and not a Status Symbol, it is of little consequence.

However, your son may see his Laptop in a different light and be less than happy with such a difference.

Consider laptopbits also - I've used them and the service was superb. I dealt with Tony Brocklebank there (click here).

Thanks for your help. It is often true that you get what you pay for and in this case it appears to be accurate. The three I have are cheaper but with no recommendations!!!

Thanks again.

Thanks for your response.

The order was literally about to go when your post arrived.

One question you may be able to answer, do they ship to the UK?
