    Need batts for an old school Dell Vostro 1510 that simply will not die, a Toshiba Satellite, an old school HP Pavilion that will not die either and a white Macbook. The Mac is way less pressing that the others.

    Thx.

    The thing you have to look out for with batteries for old laptops is that Li batteries get old just sitting there.

    A vendor may sell you a new, unused battery but if it's been sitting on the shelf for years it's OLD and weak.

    There is a Battery store just north of I-20 and 157 (Arlington) on the left as you go north on 157 just past DFW Honda.
