My System Specs

Default Reputable Site for Laptop Batteries

Anyone got a reputable site on where to buy laptop batteries? I'm looking for a battery for a Compaq Presario CQ45 just in case I decide to return the MSI GX640 that I purchased earlier today.

Go to hp parts surfer. Check for your model. Scroll down and find the laptop battery part number. Go to hp parts store. Input the number. IF its in stock...BUY it. If its not, look at their 1st tier retailers and phone around. Will spend more then some other places, but they are a known quantity. ;)

YMMV but thats what I do for all my hp and compaq gear.
