Laptop Battery Replacement Discussion

It's time for a new battery for my HP DV1000.
Is there a discussion that someone can point me to involving safety, OEM vs aftermarket, best bang for the buck,etc?

BANG may be the right word.

After so many failed replacements the only advice you'll get from me is to get the one from the maker.

Or else.

Agree with Bob . . .

Bite the bullet and buy an OEM. Made for the machine, factory warranty, etc.
