laptop batteries

Can anyone recommend a good UK based place to buy a replacement laptop battery.
I have tried a few but they all appear to outside the uk posing as UK based.
Cheers,

Re: laptop batteries

I've just found this  supplier today and ordered a battery for my Travelmate 7514WSMi.  http://www.laptopsandspares.com/batpsq2673b-5l-batpsq2673b-5l-laptop-battery ;     Offer an 0800 Tel. No. and seemed on the ball when I queried a few things on their replacement offering.  If it's not urgent give it a few days for the unit to arrive and I will update my first opinion.

Re: laptop batteries

cheers Maurice.
that would be appreciated. As I say the companies I found were hard to tell where they are based.
It's hard to see on some sites if the reviews are for the company or the product.
I've not had a battery in the laptop for two years so a few days or more will be alright. I'll just have to try hard to not spend my Christmas money on anything else in between.
regards,

I used batteries-mall last year for replacement Sony Viao battery. UK-based and a good service.

UPDATE
Ordered 17:04 Mon 29th Dec
Delivered  11:00 Approx.  Wed 31st Dec.
Sadly the incorrect part despite good efforts on both sides to get it right.  (Casing is identical but different Voltage).  Nevertheless a speedy and amicable resolution:  They will deliver the replacement on Monday and the Courier will pick up the returned unit.
Given the constraints of this time of year  it should still result in just a 1 week turn around.  Remarkable.. Smiley

Re: laptop batteries

Just to complete the saga.
The replacement battery arrived on Tuesday 6th Jan - fitted and 'charging' by 11:00.  A little later in the day the incorrect unit was picked up by the carrier.
Splendid service over the New Year break.  Grin
