No RMA process - lie to you
"Battery Depot is garbage and I wish I had seen these reviews before using them. We ordered one laptop battery LAC215-APUpon arrival it did not work. Immediately e-mailed them. They sent some things to try to make it start charging but none of those steps worked. We even tried it in another laptop of the same model.. no different. It was definitely crap to start with. Emailed them again, attaching a completed RMA request form. For the next 3 weeks they kept replying that we hadn't sent the RMA form (which I did every single reply and kept telling them - its right here, attached to this message, read it!). When I threatened them with filing a report with the BBB and going to social media, then they finally acknowledged receiving it. Still no RMA number provided to actually send it back. Forget this hassle. They are criminals, and should be shut down completely. Don't spent one cent on them. Tell everyone. We will be using our social media channels and every route we can to spread the word about them. "
Read reviews before buying
"Received faulty battery. Very hard to return plus I have to pay for shipping, not cool. Check the reviews on other sites for this company and heed the warnings "
DISGUSTING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!!
"I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing. They are a HORRID HORRID HORRID company they should NOT be trading!!!! I received an item that is FAULTY. I sent them images and videos showing that it's faulty. PLEASE NOTE THEY WROTE ON THEIR LISTING THAT THIS BATTERY IS ORIGINAL HP BATTERY. NONE OF THEIR BATTERIES ARE ORIGINAL THEY ARE FAKE FAKE FAKE FROM CHINA. CHEAP PARTS THAT YOU CAN BUY ON EBAY I requested from them a returns label to return the FAULTY item that they sent to me. Their response "we don't refund any returns postage". You will NOT RECEIVE YOUR MONEY BACK FOR RETURNING THIS ITEM WHETHER THE ITEM IS RECEIVED FAULTY OR NOT!!!!!!!DON'T BUY DO NOT BUY FROM THEM SAVE YOURSELF THE MONEY. THEY ARE FAKE UNORIGINAL PARTS, THEIR SHIPPING IS £5 AND THEY WILL LEAVE YOU IN YOUR OWN CRAP IF YOU RECEIVE A FAULTY ITEM!!!"
"Well, the proof is in the pudding as they say however ordered a replacement battery for my T520 Thinkpad Wednesday, chose the cheapest shipping option, was dispatched next day and arrived Monday - can't really say fairer than that. The battery looks good, was well packaged for the trip and so far seems to have charged fine although only time will tell how long it lasts.So far so good, didn't deal with customer service so can't comment on that but wanted to at least give a contrasting review to the ones I've seen here. No problems :)"

Wish I could give no stars because this is so careless a mistake
"Just received the shipment for replacement notebook adapter containing two incompatible parts that are visibly so very different it is difficult to believe they cold make such a mistake. Ordered 7/6 delivered 7/13. Wish I saw this site before I ordered through them."
"Thank you for your prompt delivery. Your package was very secure, shipped to my mailbox which made it less of a worry. Worked perfectly and pictures are actual more clear. I am very happy with your service. Definitely 5 * TSLhank you."
Battery at great price. Fast delivery.
"I have to admit i got worried finding out all the negative reviews after i placed my order for a Dell replacement battery. I paid extra to have next day delivery. I emailed to express my concerns and got a prompt email reply. The battery showed up the next day. Can't ask for better service so far. I just hope the battery lasts as it should."
Products not fit for purpose
"Ordered a laptop battery and it was dispatched within 24 and I received it. About a month or so in, the laptop charger stops working. A slightly protracted email correspondence for the RMA process followed and I sent it back and they issued a replacement. After less than 2 weeks, the replacement failed too. Wrote them a strongly worded email about getting a refund and all the shipping charges refunded but they will only offer a replacement despite the product not being fit for purpose. Apparently they do not have a customer service director (which given the dissatisfaction on here is no suprise) and the MD / CEO will not deal with complaints. Will report to trading standards but a pretty terrible experience. Don't buy anything from here. I'd probably recommend spending the money to buy a new laptop as in the long run would work out cheaper. "
This place is a joke, unfiar transaction- will NEVER do business with them again
"I bought 3 lightbulbs for $8 and paid $11 in shipping (which was slow by the way). The bulbs had a white ring around them not allowing them to fit any light fixture. I had no option to return them. When I contacted BattDepot they gave me a set of complicated instructions on how to get a RMA number, including a disclaimer that they will charge me a 25% restocking fee, no refund of the $11 shipping even though it was not my fault, and I have to send the item at my own expense. Of course I'm not sending the item as it doesn't make sense. WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS with them again. "
Won't order from them again
"I ordered a laptop battery from BattDepot before realizing I didn't need it. I phoned and cancelled the order an hour later and sent an email within 2 hours of that. 24 hours later I received a shipping notification. I phoned multiple times only getting voicemail. I also emailed to which they replied a day later that they were sorry it had shipped already and that I could return it when it arrived. I followed the steps for return but they refuse to issue an RMA number. I have sent multiple emails to which I get belligerent replies and still no one will answer the phone."
Thieves - how I describe Battdepot
"Ordered a battery and charge 5 weeks ago and still did not arrive. When I email Why. They blame myHermes that lost parcel. I asked them to refund money they refused by saying that waiting for confirmation from myHermes. This take a 5 weeks and still not confirmation from Hermes????? I do not trust them. "
5000+ Reviewers Can't Be Wrong
"Ordered an AC adapter for a laptop. Shipped quick enough; didn't work, though. I cannot even begin their ridiculously convoluted returns process because they never sent an e-mail confirmation of the order, or an invoice, or any other form of communication - which they unconditionally demand if you want a refund. No original invoice, no return, period. They also charged me twice for the adapter. You cannot reach anyone at this company by phone. The phone message you'll get says to use their live chat, where you won't be able to reach anyone, either. And they don't respond to e-mail. This is, hands down, the worst customer service I've ever encountered anywhere. People who received working items from Battery Depot, on time, were lucky; pure and simple. Know that if you decide to order from this company, you're counting on being lucky, too. And you may well be - but you may not. With a 1.8/5 rating on this site, your chances are not good. I'll be pursuing this issue with my credit card company - something you simply shouldn't have to do if you're dealing with an ethical vendor."
Is it a one man operation???
"I ordered a charger and a battery because their website offered NEXT day delivery,after I placed the order I receive a confirmation that it will take a couple of days to process for shipping so I immediately called them to cancel the order...no answer, left a message. Called twice that day and sent two emails explaining that I would be out of the country if I did not get it that next day, to cancel the order,,,NOTHING!! No one got back to me ever. I received the order 3 days later when I was on vacation already. The delivery was not accepted and went back.Needles to say that after disputing the charge it has taken 2 months for them to refund just the battery and charger, It cost me 24.00 because they would not assume responsibility!! I think they should not be allowed to do business like that."
"Excellent service, highly recommended. Ordered laptop battery and adaptor. No fuss. The right ones came within 3 days, ahead of schedule, well packaged and good quality items. Competitive prices. Far better experience than with other suppliers of this type of product. "
