Replacement battery for hp Compaq 6735s. Local company quoted £93.Don't know if this was for genuine hp. Checked 5 websites all offered what seemed to be compatibles (images did not have hp logo)but price was around £36.Batteries-trade.co.uk offered 3 year guarantee. Please advise on reliability of compatibles

You may well find that the 'compatibles' that are available, could well be made in the same manufacturing unit as that of originals. Re-badging is not unknown, with certain products in the computer industry.

But you also need to be cautious, because some might come from 'refurbished' or poorer quality control sources. Whatever the case, see if the item is supplied with a genuine warranty of satisfaction (terms and conditions?), and that should be a reasonable but not necessarily a 100% safeguard in considering a purchase.

take the gap out, but basically they never replied but have been told to stop using London address as there is no proof that they are based in London, my bet they are another Hong Kong company
