Can anyone recommend a good Dell laptop battery supplier?

I've purchased 2 batteries in the last 2 years, for different laptops, and both went belly up within a year. Both were purchased from reputable 3rd-parties on Amazon.

I need to replace my Dell Studio XPS laptop battery. Can anyone recommend a seller who has well-priced, dependable replacements? Thanks.

I have a Dell branded Alienware M17 laptop. I have purchased 2 OEM batteries that just never worked. Would not hold a charge at all.

Dell does not offer the battery I need anymore so these days I just use it like a desktop. Not my ideal solution but that is all I can do if I want to continue using the laptop.

I have 3 of these batteries and they are all useless. I have not yet decided to take them apart and install new replacement cells inside [homemade refurbished] but sometime before June I'll need to get that done.

I've had mixed to negative results specifically batteries lasting less then a year. This would be especially the case with batteries purchased on Ebay. My suggestion is to get an authorized battery from Dell rather then spending 20/25 dollars elsewhere as they usually come from China.
I'm not suggesting that Dell parts don't come from China but the quality control is a problem.
