    Hi All.
    I have to replace my battery on my Inspiron 1720 it has died after 3 years
    so cant complain.
    I have looked at various sellers both commercial and on E Bay. Some seem
    too cheap while others are quite expensive. They all offer a 1 year
    guarantee. Has anyone bought a battery in the UK recently? or has a
    reccommendation?
    TIA

  2. I replaced my Dell M1530's battery with an "Agptek" brand from Amazon.com:
    http://tinyurl.com/4qwt9zu Sorry that this is the US availability. I think I
    paid about $36. I got the heavy duty one that props up the back of the
    laptop and that gives better air circulation.

    I'm quite happy with mine. It's about 1 1/2 years old and seems to still be
    holding its charge well.

    Yes, it does appear that the "Agptek" brand is not marketed in Britain. Who
    knows where all these no-name products are made? Probably some of same
    factories that Dell contracts with.

    I think that you can take a chance on one of these:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb...keywords=battery+for+dell+laptop+1720&x=0&y=0.

    What's the worse thing that could happen? For the price Dell wants you could
    buy three!

    Do know how good/bad they are, but another option.
