I ordered a sony vaio battery but I really doubt it is a genuine product.
The battery looks very similar but I was suspicious the minute it arrived before I even openned the packaging (none of which is Sony labeled)
There are subtle differences to the original Sony battery that came with my laptop.
THE BATTERY DOES NOT WORK AT ALL IT IS A COMPLETE DUD.
Recommendation is to stear well clear of buy-laptop-battery.co.uk
If you think the product you received from this company (or no product arrives at all) I recommend reporting it to Paypal
THEY ARE THEIFS!!! they stole my money.i bought a battery from them about a week ago now. i never received a confirmation through for my purchase, so i emailed them chasing it and also chasing my product as i had had no dispatch notice either. i was beginning to not trust them so opened a dispute with paypal for it, and that got me a reply to my email. but they didnt give me what i wanted still and instead told me they hadnt got my address and needed it before they could dispatch the item. so i replied straight away and again asked for my confirmation. i got no reply again. so i went to their website to find a number to contact them, and discovered to my horror there was no number or even an address. so i emailed them again, asking about whether it had been dispatched......still no reply. so i head back to their website, only to find that their website no longer is working. i have now emailed them telling them that i will file for a claim through paypal to get my money back. this still hasnt got a response from them.
these people are not a genuine business, all they do is take your money and then ignore all your emails, and dont even send your item. i have since seen reviews that their apparently "genuine" hp batteries are in fact fake.
WHATEVER you do, DONT buy from these people, they will just rob you of your money and then disappear.
I bought a battery on June, the item was stopped at Italian custom in Milan in July (one month after payment) for extra-costs due to import from Hong Kong. I sent the item back and till now no refund. Beware of buy-laptop-battery.co.uk. It is not Uk and it is not safe at all.

I bought a Sony VAIO battery in December 2010 which was advertised as original. The seller is Chinese, the parcel was shipped from Hong Kong and it cost me £38 in import costs to get it out of quarantine.
The company informs that they will reimburse the import cost but has not reacted to the documentation sent over.
Moreover, the battery is counterfeit! The trained eye easily spots the false product sticker which at first glance looks orignal with Sony logo.
