Where to find a secondary laptop battery?

Where can I find a secondary battery for an Acer Travelmate C310 Tablet?

When I originally bought my laptop, the Acer promotional material claimed I could get a second battery that would replace my optical drive and double my battery life. I'm trying to find that battery now, and I'm only finding a single site online that sells it. However, that site has a complete lack of information and seems somewhat shady as well as pretty pricey.

Is there anywhere else online I can order this special battery, preferably cheaper?

"acer secondary battery" on ebay turned up just a few things, including this one. Not much of a price improvement on what you found but it's something....

For my C310, I just ended up getting a spare main battery, mainly due to the lack of availability and high price of the secondary batteries. It does mean I have to shut down the computer at some point to switch batteries, so its not the ideal situation. Good question though, and I'll be monitoring to see if there are any reasonable options.

Hmm, Ebay seems to be the way to go, at least a good $40-60 cheaper than the site I linked. I'll look into this.
