    Default Where can I buy a Cheap battery for my sony?

    Where can I buy a Cheap battery for my sony? is I have a laptop Sony VGP-BPS13A / S has already told me goodbye. I do not even 5 minutes is difficult. I looked on the official sony, but not available and the price seems excessive to me (60 €). A friend told me to take the opportunity to buy a battery that is better, but ... would be unofficial, right? ? Could use a better one? ? Could you suggest any site that is legit? I'm not an expert, so I come to you. I've seen some with 8 or 12 cells, with more power, etc ... What does this mean? ? Are they better? ? I can trust? How about the website: **************.com

    Start by calling Sony and ask which batteries fit into it and what they recommend. Write down those part numbers and start web searching.

    That true only Sony will recommend this and go for original no matter how much it costs but this will gives you satisfaction and guarantee too.

    Google "laptop batteries" and you will get a wide selection of places to buy replacement batteries. Look for the number of stars in the ratings and stay with hte ones that have plenty of reviews that are 4 stars or higher and you will do OK.

    I buy my replacement batteries for my Apple MacBook from an after market internet supplier and am very happy with them (newertech.com) but they only do apple products.

    To get you started, here is a link to a 5 star rated company with over 50 reviews. I have not done business with them so I cannot personally vouch for them, but I'd look there, and any other 4 star rated companies with more than 50 reviews and compare prices.

    I would stick with the OEM 6 cell type for fit and weight reasons.

    BTW, Sony buys batteries from several sources and puts their name on them, so the odds are that you could end up with a battery that comes off the same assembly line that Sony uses. There aren't that many manufacturers.

    The OP is not in the USA/Canada. Not even in Mex.

    The moderators should spring into action.

    Buying replacement batteries for many electronics isn't worth the money these days. By the time you've lost the charge on your existing battery the device is obsolete.

    Yeah, that was definitely a spammer. Any time I've needed a battery I've gone to Amazon. They have their fair share of things to keep away from too though. MattB2517 is right. Most of the time, buying a new battery is more of a hassle than it's worth. Cellphone batteries have always been a problem for me.
