Default need new battery for dell inspiron 1520

i need a new battery for my dell inspiron 1520. buying it from dell is too expensive. does anyone have a website that they could recommend where i can find the battery cheaper. I am interested more in finding the 9 cell extende battery version than the standard kind but the standard kind would do as a last resort.

I've bought a half dozen or so Dell batteries off of Ebay and had good luck over the last few years. Other people on TF, though, have not and it seems to be a mixed bag. If you look there make sure you buy from an extremely reputable seller and genuine Dell batteries if at all possible. The chinese knocks offs probably aren't so great.

Barring that I haven't shopped for laptop batteries anywhere else in a while but I'm sure someone else can recommend a good non-ebay source.

the problem with dell is they want $140 for just the 6 cell battery, and they don't even offer the 9 cell which i really need because i have a lot of back to back classes in college
