Be careful about buying a battery from a seller a long way away from where you are. I'm in the US and bought one from an eBay seller in China --- problem was, the model I received was apparently a knock-off and not an exact fit for my laptop. To make a long story short, although the seller was very nice, he would not pay for any shipping charges, and the cost of returning my new battery across the world and having a replacement battery shipped -- not to mention the time it would have taken --- it just wasn't worth it, so I duct-taped my new battery into my laptop and have used it that way ever since. It is really unsightly, and if I jostle the laptop a bit, the battery frequently dislodges iteself (so that it no longer makes contact), but otherwise, if I'm real careful, the battery does work.

Don't screw around with cheapo knock off chinese batteries. Pony up the money for the vendors battery. Get the extended battery to get more life.
