    Where's the best place to get them online (best price + reliable site)? Any suggestions?

    Also, what kind of warranty is usually associated with an after-market Laptop battery?

    My Toshiba a100 (From what I can gather that's the model, I also see the label: psaa8u-0200u on the back of it but I seem to get more results with a100) battery only stays charged for about 10 minutes when it's off the charger, which makes having a laptop pretty pointless, so I need a new one.


    If you guys have any suggestions and information that would be wonderful :wavey:

    I'd swap it with the 9 cell for starters:

    PA3478U-1BAS

    That's Toshiba's part number. I've never bought a non-OEM battery (although it's not like they make them either).

    And only buy the OEM battery from Toshiba or a reputable dealer. 99% of the generic batteries floating around these days are absolute junk. I work for a company as a laptop technician, and I can say without a doubt all of the generics we've ever bought ended up either completely failing or loosing most of their capacity within months.
