Default Mini 10v Battery - 01-19-2010, 03:22 PM

I was looking online at 6 cell batteries for the Mini 10v and lots of places seem to think that the battery for the Mini 10 will work in the Mini 10v. Does anybody know where I can get a battery cheaper than the ones directly from Dell? I am in the US.

you can try the For Sale section of this forum or maybe ebay..but be warned the batteries are more or less interchangable but many report that the replacements are loose or do not fit 100%, some have had to cut/shave pieces of the battery for a proper fit also the latches sometimes are an issue careful..

I bought mine from a seller on eBay. I did have to slightly notch the holes for the locking tabs. The battery fits tight and snug after that.

I've got a Mini 10v coming from the Dell Outlet in a couple of weeks but it only has a 3 cell. I really want to push it up to a 6 (they had no 6 cell ones on the outlet) but buying elsewhere is severely expensive. Anyone know what other batteries work in it (I don't mind modifying it to fit) so I can try and look for them? I'm in the UK by the way.
