Anyone got a good UK supplier of laptop batteries?

Has to be the UK, because of Brexit.

Needs to be good quality.
We can find loads, but knowing who is supplying something that actually corresponds the the capacity that matches the label.

Bad experiences with fakes/quality in the past.

In the spirit of living a good life and focusing on relationships and culture, I have decided that I must buy a good arcade fight stick and a proper sim racing rig.
I am sure these will help me with my goals and lead to a much more enriching life.

I've been looking for somewhere online to take like a onetime photography course. Specifically for film photography. I've not found much...maybe i'm not looking hard enough. I think there is something on like skillshare but I would rather find something that I can have the material forever.

I just need some help to understand the aspects of shutter speed+aperture...

I'm also looking for something affordable since I'm just doing this for fun
