Having read other customers reviews, I can empathise with some of their concerns about this company. I ordered a charger for my ibook and was immediately sent an email stating that my order would be processed the next working day. All seemed well and good. For some reason I typed battery-shop.co.uk review into google and suddenly found very negative reviews about the company and how it wasn't based in the UK and how it was all a scam.
On the face of it, the company did appear to be UK based, they gave a UK address for returns and had a. co.uk registered domain. However soon after placing the order, i too received a second email stating that it may take up to 15 days to have my order shipped from China. At this point alarm bells started ringing. I felt I had been scammed.
However, just a few days after placing my order, the charger I ordered did arrive. It seems to work ok and i have no reason to be negative about my transaction with this company. To the best of my knowledge, I don't believe this is a fraudulent company, however I do agree that they may appear to be misleading customers about where they are actually based.
