Question about Computers & Internet
The laptop battery contains 3 cells, 4 cells, 8 cells, 9 cells and 12 cells, More cells means longer battery life. And it is also heavier and expensive. Now, it is convenient to buy OEM battery from online store, and you will get your purchase within 3 days. Usually, the 9-cell batteries are less 100$.
If you are in North America, I recommend you to buy from amazon.com or http://www.brilliantstore.com/

The answer to replacing your battery depends on which battery do you want, where do you want to buy it, how fast do you need it, and how much you want to pay.
The quick answer is to buy a NEW exact model battery for your same model laptop off eBay, but I strongly recommend you need a new one with some type of warranty.
Most local laptop repair stations will not carry your specific model (it would have to be ordered) and it will likely be far more expensive because they have high operating costs, have to pay the full wholesale price , and have to provide the manuafcturer warranty.
The low price, speed in shipping directly to you, and potential increased battery life due to improved battery design point that the best deal may be on ebay, however I should note a concern about 3rd party batteries... Some OEM laptop manufacturers have had problems with OEM batteries overheating in laptops due to manufacturing defects as noted by recent recalls from HP, SONY, Dell, and IBM.
Use of 3rd party batteries (not OEM) may void the remaining warranty on your laptop since the battery could be purchased from a company not approved for the OEM laptop to sell their parts. I have never had this battery overheating problem, but youe should be aware of these concerns.
