View Full Version : Dell XPS M1330 - 9 Cell Battery

September 16th, 2008, 06:34 PM

Just got back from college and have decided that I will use my laptop to take notes. Problem is my battery wont really cut it so I thought I'd invest in a 9 cell battery.

I was wondering if anyone could help me choice the correct battery model and a cheap place I could buy one from rather than Dell who seem to be very expensive?

On another note, does anyone have one and what battery life do you get?

Thanks in advance

I buy my batteries from the computer manufacturer. Mine's an HP and experience has taught me that third-party batteries are neither cheaper nor of better quality.

I have a 12-cell one (granted my notebook is one of the 15.4" screen guys), and I get 4.5-5 hours depending.

I've never had much luck with third party batteries either.

So how much am I looking at for a Dell battery then?
