Hi there , my dell battery has crapped out .. ( jeez I see you lot BUILD your own ..impressive ! ) anyway I just want to buy one, and fast ..( i'm in chch for a day ) .Am i better to order one from Dell or buy one from a local supplier ? Someone told me that Laptop Universe was th e place but I looked on yr forums and see that they were a bunch of rogues... so now i'm a bit nervous of these places . Is there anywhere in ChCh that I can trust ? Is it ok to put a generic battery into my (4 yr old ) Dell ?

Laptop Battery are based in New Brighton. I have ordered from them before without problem. The only risk you have with buying unofficial batteries is that they often lose their charge faster than the originals.
