Laptop batteries on Ebay...

Well the battery in my HP Pavilion laptop seems like it's ready to go down for the dirt nap, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the ones sold on Ebay, or Amazon..

Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

I would avoid any batteries not from HP or other computer manufactures. You will pay more but if they blow up in your face you have recourse. A third-party after market battery you have no recourse if it fails.

I recently had my battery changed on my DELL laptop.I got the company one even though the batteries from other sources were cheaper.When it comes to batteries go with the laptop manufacturer.

I got one for my HP over a year ago and it works great. Has 2 year warranty.

I have bought a few replacements from both sources. No issues.

I do not buy the after-market "compatible" parts. I buy the branded replacements from sellers with good rep.

The parts look genuine, the numbers match, and they perform like the real deal. How they can sell these parts for much less than the manufacturer is just typical retail marketing. The manufacturer will sell it for full MSRP (there are a bunch of business reasons why it is important they do this), but wholesalers and retailers can discount the price to their hearts content.

In this case, you get what you pay for. A no name would probably work, but it might not last very long.

Avoid chinese made knock off batteries. They seem like a great deal, but then you find they don't hold a charge, don't last long, don't quite fit, etc.
