    New laptop battery

    Where do you guys an gals get replacement laptop batteries? There seems to be a ton of cheap chinese replacements that seem to last about 5 minutes.

    I need a battery I can rely on, so who sells the best replacements with proper Japanese or Korean cells from well known manufacturers?

    It's for an ASUS laptop. I don't think ASUS make it any more so can't buy one from them.
    I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

    I've used them on and off for 20 years. But not in the last 5.

    EDIT: although it looks like they don't do laptops any more. Probably got undercut by cheap Chinese rip-offs

      Hopefully this is of some use.

      Having gone through the pain of a few trashy Chinese rip-off's. I can recommend the following company for replacement laptop batteries.

      This company buy them from China, BUT the actual 18650 cells originate from either Japan or Korea.

      After 4 months of daily usage they are actually exceeding all expectations!


      My trusty old Lenovo T420 now has up to 8 hours on battery, two more hours than the original batteries when new in 1755!!
