I need to replace the battery in my Dell Inspiron 6400.  I would appreciate advise on whether I should buy a Dell replacement or off brand replacement.  If off brand, any suggestions on a reliable company to shop online?  Thanks,

I bought an off brand for a previous dell laptop and it didnt fit the same.  Also died shortly after so I would say go dell.

I bought a cheapy china one off ebay, worked well for 3 years, and for just less than half the price, glad I did..

BTW: it worked for 100% longer than the original, since they were newer technology batteries..

Mine came with 12 Month warranty, so I felt a little safe for 12 months at least..

Thanks to all for your input.  I think I am going to purchase one from amazon (from the links provided).  As you said, I think it is the luck of the draw!  Thanks again for your time....
