Thoughts on generic laptop batteries and chargers

My Dell Inspiron 1750 needs a new battery and charging cord. Prices thru Dell are outrageous. I found reasonable options on Amazon that claim they are compatible. Is there anything I should be aware of when buying non-Dell batteries/cords? Thx!

I checked at Dell and the 111 buck model is a 9 cell.

The cheaps on Amazon are 6 cell. What did you find?
