I have Sony Vaio VGN-FW455J laptop .. and its battery is not even lasting 40mins ..So I am looking to buy a new one .. and probably a bigger one with better mAh .. Current one has 4400 mAh ..The current battery model is VGP-BPS13/S .. So I just wanna know if any 9cell sony vaio battery will be compatible with my laptop or I need to get this specific model only?Anyone have any idea wht 9 cell battery models will be compatible with my laptop?

I have the same problem .4 years back I bought in Hong Kong a Acer Travelmate Laptop.Now battery is zero. (5 min grace time to close your laptop properly!:Kill:)Local Acer distributors/service agents have no idea of that battery no. Acer Hong Kong directs me to Acer India. Some speciality "replacement" battery makers have battery for all Acer (and other brands) India models.The model I need is available in USA ebay but Iwas trying to get it across the table here to no avail.( had it ben available in HK web sites , I would have ordered with more confidence.Rs 2500 battery if does not fit my laptop ,waste of money. when you get a decent netbook for Rs 11-12k, not worth pursuing .It is working very well as desk top laptop!:ac:But US Sony VIAO models have better chances of finding battery from US ebay or Sony USA web site.check your battery model no/part no and order with out hesitation. (9 cell might cost you say $100!!- min Rs 2500-3500 add min overseas postage to India$20-25)

my experience has been pretty bad. bought an unofficial battery for my old dell inspiron. price of a 9 cell battery was half of what dell was charging for a 6 cell one... it does work. but as soon as start anything processor intensive (video conversion?) the system gives up and shuts down. i guess the battery is not capable of handling the load. i probably got a lemon.

One of my friend had a very bad experience using compatible battery for his HP Pavillion DV6000 laptop. After two - three months, one day the outside cover of the battery popped out and he was stunned to see all the cells inside have got inflated like a balloon. He was lucky that nothing bad happened.I strongly suggest to stay away from compatible batteries.

always a risky thing. i would have gone for the dell's official battery if they had a 9 cell unit available. sadly they do not have 9 cell batteries for all their models. not going to buy anything dell :D

One compatible charger once fried my working laptop :mad: and they sell 100 daily
