Default Where can I buy an official Dell Mini 9 battery? - 05-16-2011, 09:36 AM

I'm trying to get hold of a new battery for my Mini 9 as mine is knackered. I've seen various comically oversized third-party batteries that claim to offer extended battery life, etc, but I understand there are problems inherent in using these. I would like to get hold of another official Dell one (because I'm old school). Does anybody still sell them?

Cheers,
Loz

From Dell, of course. Prepare for sticker shock, not to mention a prolonged wait. I have not had issues with the extended battery I have (from MyDigitalDiscount), but I think the one they sell now is slightly different.

Wow, that is pretty pricey! Unfortunately, there's no sign of that battery on the UK Dell site. I went ahead and bought an unofficial 4-cell from an ebay shop. They had good ratings so hopefully I'll be lucky. I didn't fancy one of the extended ones since they stick out the bottom so much. Thanks for the tip anyway
