I need to buy a replacement battery for my Dell XPS 1730 laptop. I want to buy the battery while I'm in the U.S. the next few days. I live in Costa Rica. Batteries and other computer parts are far more expensive there, and it's often hard to get good quality.

Because I live in Costa Rica, I want to get a quality battery that is likely to last well. I have not been impressed with the battery that originally came with the Dell XPS 1730. I replaced it with a similar battery, and it did not hold up well.

There are not many reviews of on Amazon of batteries for the XPS 1730. The battery that has two very good reviews is this one, but two reviews isn't much to go on: http://www.amazon.com/AGPtek-Battery-0XG510-312-0680-Laptops/dp/B002YC97YW/ref=pd_cp_e_1.

I'll appreciate a recommendation of a good quality battery and a brief explanation of why you recommend it.

The oem batteries aren't generally any worse than anything else you find. Usually better actually. What kills a laptop battery the fastest is leaving it in whily you are plugged in. If you want a ups get a ups. It's cheaper.
