    Hey all, my Fujitsu T902 main battery has given up the ghost, its stuck at 0% and wont charge. Not a big surprise considering its been going strong for roughly 7 years, but I think this machine still has some life in it and I would love to order a new battery for it. I'm seeing some really expensive ones like here:
    https://www.laptopbatteryexpress.com/Genuine-Fujitsu-Lifebook-T902-main-battery-p/fuj-t360.htm

    But also finding relatively affordable ones like here t Aliexpress:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/400...earchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_

    Does anyone here have experience ordering anything on aliexpress? I've never used their site before.
    Anyone have a recommendation of where to hunt down a battery? Fujitsu website doesn't even carry them anymore, only the modular bay battery for $150 (and my modular bay battery still works)
    any cautions, tips or ideas are welcome!

    I have used Aliexpress many times over the past few years, never had a problem. Sellers have been courteous and responsive, and in those few cases that the goods didn't arrive, I got a full refund. Once they sent me an item with wrong specification - they let me keep it and sent the correct one soon afterwards. I have also purchased internal batteries on Aliexpress, no problems. You can order with confidence. The only thing you need to know is that shipping from China can take a while, sometimes over a month. Be patient, but keep an eye on the deadline for claims.
