    New Internal HP battery

    Does somebody know another place (than HP) to get a new internal battery for my Pavillion notebook (preferably on the island). The battery has died, I called HP and it takes 3 weeks to ship it to me, or I have to go to Lai Chi Kok to pick it up (and in that case I will only get 90 days warranty through the repair center and not 1 year via the regular sales department?!).

    And that after just 13 months ...

    Be aware that there are some huge ripoff merchants in WCC & 298 when it comes to batteries. There is a place close to the entrance of 298 Hennessy which tried to charge me for an OEM battery for a Thinkpad 3 times the price that I got by going to a small place on the top floor. That place would be where I would recommend:

    The guy's name is Man Lai, and he speaks reasonably good English.
