Need a battery or charger for your laptop?

As we get closer to Lotusphere, thoughts turn to devices, power and batteries – do I have enough battery life to get me through the flight, will I be able to charge my laptop or phone at the conference etc.

Well, if those questions to crop up at this late stage, give a thought to trying battery.co.uk.  You’ve probably already seen their banner at the bottom of posts on this blog:

battery.co.uk

Why?

a) They are really really good when it comes to original or 3rd party chargers/batteries for all the popular manufacturers (Dell, HP, Toshiba, IBM etc). They usually have stock and can ship same-day.  In fact, in many cases when you contact the manufacturer for a part it will be battery.co.uk that ship it to you.
b) They are great for the older systems that aren’t well supported by either the manufacturers or big e-commerce sites out there.  If they haven’t got something in stock, they will find it for you if possible.
c) They also sell mobile phone chargers, batteries and accessories – particularly for Blackberries.
d) They are lovely lovely folks – I should know ‘cos the owners are my brother- and sister-in-law – Mark and Laura.  They don’t pay for advertising on this site – we just like to get the word out as they do a great job.

They have an online shop, but if you need something before the ‘Sphere, you’re probably best calling them direct.  They’re on 0845 22 22 888 and serve the UK.

Give them a try!
