Who is a good online source for these? Refurbished units with new cells would be fine. Thanks.

ps. If you decide to buy a remanufactured or generic battery, make sure it's been properly inspected by the proper regulatory agencies to assure you don't get one that could cause a fire, because unfortunately the new "free trade" laws enable bootleg batteries to enter your country without passing the safety standards testing. Sadly, without the proper working safety standards in place, if a Lithium battery overheats and catches fire it could burn a house down. I learned this lesson and was lucky that I got off with just a burn mark in my carpet, but could have cost me my home and lives of my children because I purchased attractively priced batteries from china. I now only use genuine batteries and when setting the charge thresholds properly, they can last 10 years or longer. If you attempt shortcuts like unbranded generics or "remanufactured" batteries, be careful not to leave the laptop plugged in when you aren't in the room.

When a company like China exports batteries, it's required to show proof of compliance, but thanks to ebay (and similar sites) they can be shipped in small quantities bypassing this process, usually incorrectly identified on the customs papers.
