    The question is: OEM, or 3rd party.
    I need a battery for my Dell Inspiron 8200.
    I found quite a few on Ebay. New, but 3rd party.
    Dell wants a rediculous $150 for their's.
    The 3rd party batteries are around $55 delivered.
    Any thoughts?
    Thanks,
    Joe

    New if possible, good deals through ebay (done it before).

    If you buy "new" from ebay make sure the seller has a decent warranty ie. 90 day. (found this one for $50)

    3rd party or refurbs are fine too, just don't mix the two if you are going for dual batteries.

    For either purchase make sure the Voltage and mAh are the same as your original.

    Thanks for the reply.
    I did see that one on Ebay, but it's 3800mAH.
    I want 4600.
    I'll keep looking.
    My question was really about the 3rd party batteries (new only)
    Maybe I'll try one.
