Replacement battery for HP Pavillion laptop
#1
Does anyone know where I can get a replacement battery for an HP Pavillion Pavillion laptop please?

I tried a  supplier in the UK but they will not post it because it is Lithium Iron and the airlines get a bit nervous carrying that type.  Also any recommendations for anyone who can fix a broken power Jack on the same HP laptop?  It works if I jiggle the connector, but is not secure, and with a dodgy battery the the laptop cuts out without warning. 

Thank you in advance.

Have you looked at Amazon? They usually have various batteries. Both OEM and third party.

Hate to say this but unless the machine is very new you might be better finding a replacement on sale. A new battery OEM battery is fairly expensive on it's own.

I had to do that last autumn. It was almost cheaper to get a new machine than to find the parts to fix up my old Dell.

Depends where you are on the Island, but there is a pretty decent repair shop in El Matorral, will supply directions if you need them.
To me drinking responsibly means do not spill it.

We are in Caleta so El Mattorral would be fantastic.   I would really appreciate directions, if you would be so kind?

Thank you!

Thank you, Will,  I had not thought of Amazon, but I suspect any supplier would have the same problem with the Lithium battery, but it is worth investigating.   My laptop is around 3 years old, and the UK supplier says a new OEM battery is around £40, so still economic to replace.

You could have a UK supplier send it to Woodside's address in the UK.  They will then ship it here on the next available container.  Their rates for small items are very reasonable.

Thank you Tom,  I appreciate the lead, and i will follow up.  

By the way,  just in case anyone else is looking for a new charger (there are no problems with posting chargers)   I have used https://thelaptoppowersupplyshop.co.uk   in the UK, who seem to be honest and genuine.  They were the ones who told me about the problems posting Lithium batteries.

Take the second r/about into El Matorral, go past the fretaria, and take the second left and its 2/3 doors down on the right, open 10-2 and 4-6 Mon - Friday

I meant the Spanish Amazon.  If it's only 40 that's a steal. A Dell battery was 120  Confused
