Default Need battery for discontinued sony laptop

My wife has a Sony VAIO, which has presently been discontinued by Sony. We are looking for a replacement laptop battery, but are not sure which one to get, since Sony does not seem to make them anymore. Does anyone know of a aftermarket battery that will do the job?
The model of the laptop is PCG-71613L
The product name is: VPCCB190X

Thanks

Lot of bad reviews on that Clown...

I highly suggest a Rayovac or Anker battery, always had great results from Anker battery packs, and Rayovac is one of the few companies that makes cells for aftermarket batteries when it comes to laptops.

Thanks. A bit of work to find a battery for a Sony laptop. A shame Sony doesn't seem to care about the customers of its discontinued products.

Every company moves on from old products not because they don't care about the customers that purchased them but because its not a smart investment to continue production of outdated products.

Believe it or not, companies try to stick with the same battery layout through multiple generations.
