Non-OEM batteries

Hi all

 

I'm new to the forum and it has been instrumental in helping me convert my D430! Just a quick query, as my oldish battery is now unfortunately running out of life (6 cell oem, probably about 1+ hour battery life on full charge), I was wondering whether has anyone tried using generic non-oem batteries and what their experience is? I am looking at perhaps acquiring a 9-cell non-oem for maximal cost-savings and battery life!

 

Many thanks for the help! Really appreciate it! =)

I'm using a generic 5800 mAh battery since 1 week - it provides me with around 4 hours OSX work, until now it is fine. But like other non oem batterys, it is bad at lower charge - it drops voltage quite quick, so it might just fail at rates lower than 10% charge. Result: your dell is powered off without any warning...
