Good place for laptop batteries?

Subject says it all, anybody have any good stores (online or B&M) to get laptop batteries at? I figure any place is better than buying them direct from Compaq & HP.
Thanks
Dave

I usually buy all my computer and electronic stuff from buy.com. Have you try there?

Ugh.

Notebook batteries lose capacity steadily, and quickly. Draining them all the way is really damaging, but even if you avoid that, they just dry up - even the best ones out there.

For that reason, I buy my notebook batteries from my notebook vendor (Dell, in my case.) They come with a warranty, usually three years, and you can replace 'em as often as you like at no charge. They may be more expensive from your vendor, but the warranty is worth it.
