If would depend on who the seller is and what they are selling.

 

Your battery is a 6 cell Lithium ion battery, 10.8V @ 4400 to 5600 mAh for $29.45, shipping is free.

 

The only one I saw at eBay was  a 6 cell Lithium ion battery, 10.8V @ 5600 mAh for $29.45, shipping is free.

 

Newegg has a 6 cell Lithium ion battery, 10.8V @ 4400 mAh for $18.63 plus $6.99 shipping. 

 

mAh is mili amp hour, the higher the figure the longer the battery will stay charged.

They could be good or they could be garbage. That is the risk buying from someone else besides the manufacturer. I also believe that You get what You pay for.

You can save some or a lot of money buying on eBay however there is a risk. I suspect that a Genuine Toshiba Battery would be expensive.

 

You could check here on Toshiba to see what they are selling for. Then check eBay for comparison.

They seem to be cheap enough on Amazon and I suspect that if they are bought where it shows fulfilled by amazon any return would be easy. I only Buy on Amazon where they do the fulfillment themselves FWIW.

 

Good Luck

Roger

Personal Opinion Is that I would go with the Toshiba Battery with one caveat.

I'd want to know how old is it. They can go bad from being too old as I understand it.

Some things I would have no problem buying NOS (New Old Stock) items. Some things I do. I have seen some things such as Motherboards that were never used go bad. When Buying Batteries rechargeable or Non Rechargeable I want as new as possible.

 

The question is What price does Toshiba charge for the same battery?

 

Good Luck

Roger

I believe one hundred something !

 

I really don't care about is it good or bad all I want is to make sure that the laptop doesn't shut down when I unplug the power cable

Whichever battery you end up buying (I prefer Newegg) make sure you maintain it properly.

 

You'll get the longest life from a Li-Ion battery if you never discharge it below 10% and never charge it above 90%.

 

I know, easier said than done, but if you try your best to stick to that plan, you should be able to use your next battery for years and years.

This is what i do and i has saved many a batetry doing this. Put the battery in a plasic bag and make it air tight and put it in the freezer, after 3 hours take it out and let it thaw out and make sure there is no moisture on the batter before placing it back in the laptop (Air cool for an hour or two). Turn it on and see if it charges now.

Thank You for the Tip
