Hi Claude,

I've had very good luck locally with The Battery Factory.  It's on north 1st,
or maybe Stone... can't remember which.  Not too far from campus.

They have an incredibly large selection of batteries.  Back in 2003 I needed a
battery for my Vaio laptop, which was already a bit old at the time and they
had exactly what I needed and for a very good price.

More recently I've also gone their for replacement UPS batteries.
