    I'm looking to replace the battery in a Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop and I'm looking for recommendations on a good place to get one. I usually purchase from BestBatt.com but they don't carry a replacement for the Dell Inspiron 1501. So, I'm looking for another place.

    I've found one on Amazon.com for $30 or so but the mixed reviews make me cautious since other sites list the same battery for $60 or more.

    I have also had a good experience with ebatts.com but they sell a replacement for more than I would prefer to pay.

    Any recommendations on reputable sites for laptop batteries?

    Thanks!

    Peace...

    Got the 7800 mAh for my 1501 about 2 years ago from Battery Depot. Don't recall what I paid for it, but way less than Dell. You might also want to take a look at Amazon.

    I've had good luck with Ebay.

    I ended up finding a great replacement battery on eBay! Ironically, I purchased this battery from a seller I had purchased another battery from and that battery didn't work. This one worked perfectly. :)

    Peace...
