Default No aftermarket batteries yet? - 08-31-2009, 03:01 PM

I've been searching, but I can't seem to find an aftermarket 3 cell battery for my 10v. I've seen plenty of Mini 9's and even some 12's, but no 10v. I'd like the 3 cell when I need to go more compact and don't need the battery life afforded to me by the 6 cell. Dell of course sells the 3 cell, but for a ridiculous $130.

Any help or suggestions?

I just checked ebay and there are some on there. I can't say for sure if they're interchangeable with 10s, but some auctions seem to indicate so.

3-cell battery for mini 10 should fit 10v. You may have to shave off the holes on either side of the battery for the secure fit but that's only minor quibble... ^ ^

How old is your 6 cell battery? I have a brand new 3 cell I would be willing to swap you for.
