For a computer user that lives in a certain country it is easier to get the internal components for his computer from the same area from where he bought the computer in the first place. If you have a Dell computer and live in Canada, for example, you would not order laptop replacement batteries from USA. You will buy them from Canada as well. And the best thing would be to buy them directly from the manufacturer, meaning directly from Dell.
A laptop computer can come more expensive if you buy it from a reseller who must add some dollars to the computer’s original price, in order to obtain profit.
Make sure you buy the computer from a distributor that doesn’t add anything to the computer’s price (this is a method used by Dell with certain resellers) and offers the same services that Dell would offer if you would buy the computer directly from them. The internal components when broken must be replaced with original components and with compatible ones. And what other good place to buy internal components for your Dell computer than Dell website or Dell stores?
Let’s say you want to replace the batteries inside your computer, because you noticed that they don’t deliver the same amount of energy as they used to deliver. In this case, you should address to a local Dell reseller, which is your trusted provider for Dell parts.
If you have so much trust in that distributor, perhaps you have too in the personnel working there. Some computer stores have also technicians that can provide the most elementary operations for your computers, such as the replacement of the battery module, of the LCD inverter, of the computer’s screen, some software troubleshooting and that’s about it. For other operations, you should address to someone more qualified and trained by Dell.
Make sure that if you address to a local technician, which was not trained by Dell, if that person fails with the repair, then you are the only one responsible for what happened. The worse part is if the computer is under the warranty period, because you might lose the period due to a person who doesn’t know to perform a simple operation. This is why it’s recommended that even for such operations, you should address to somebody qualified to do them.
The batteries that are to be installed in your computer, even if they are not bought from the Dell website, must be manufactured by Dell and must be compatible and suitable for your computer model. If they deliver more energy, thus more WHr this is in fact better. The new battery does not necessarily have to be identical with the depleted one, just in terms of dimensions and fabricant.11
