What is the best source (price/value) for a Dell laptop battery?

Dell no longer offers a replacement battery for their XPS 15z.

Original battery cells were made by ATL.

I see all kinds of replacements from $50 to $120+.

I don't want to invest $50 in a POS, so what is a value proposition?

B+ seems way over priced.

I've not been able to find the cells for less that $13 ea.

That's $104, as much as I'd pay for most replacement batteries.

And I still have the same problem of knowing their quality.

#VulgarDonald "Trump is a pathological liar." "Trump is a phony." "He doesn't know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of this mouth."

Then: "The pattern we've seen under President Obama, disregarding the law, is really one of the most troubling aspects of this presidency, When he disagrees with the law...he simply refuses to comply with it."
Now: "Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny, Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America. I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to chose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court decision."

"What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that, not only what he (McConnell) told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again was a simple LIE."

Then: "This bill (Hurricane Sandy relief) is symptomatic of a larger problem in Washington--an addiction to spending money we do not have. The United States Senate should not be in the business of exploiting victims of natural disasters to fund pork projects that further expand our debt."
Now: "Today, Texans are hurting. ... Democrats and Republicans in the congressional delegation will stand as one in support of the federal government meeting its statutory obligations to provide the relief to help the Texans who are hurting."

"In the 13 months I've been in the Senate, it has become apparent to me the single thing that Republicans hate and fear the most - and that is when they're forced to tell the truth. It makes their heads explode. An awful lot of the Republicans wanted exactly what Barack Obama wanted, exactly what Nancy Pelosi wanted, exactly what Harry Reid wanted, which is to raise the debt ceiling, but they wanted to be able to tell what they view as their foolish, gullible constituents back home they didn't do it."

"Look - look, of course we should have a surgeon general in place. And we don't have one because President Obama, instead of nominating a health professional, he nominated someone (Dr. Murthy MD & Harvard Medical School Professor) who is an anti-gun activist."

"What I tell people is I wear this (indictment for abuse of power) as a badge of honor"

"His (Robert's) decision yesterday and his decision a couple of years ago violated his oath of office,"

"Today's Democratic Party has decided there is no room for Christians. There is a liberal fascism that is going after Christian believers."

Ebay has used\refurbed ones for about 40 dollars and new ones for about 60 dollars. Get one from a US based seller with a good feedback rating. Probably the best and cheapest option at this point.

ebay. Just got one for DW's laptop (Dell) that shit the bed a few months ago. It's a "plus sized" battery meaning it extends below the laptop and acts as a prop, however you can also get more "OEM" sized ones. IT was like $20. No problems. Just look at the reviews before you buy - battery sellers seem to only sell batteries so their merchant reviews usually contain a lot of info about the product.

This is the one I bought:

Strange, they must have discontinued production, I don't see why that would be the case, Anker is aftermarket afterall
