I'm staying in Lima for a short while, and I want to buy a replacement battery for my laptop (a Lenovo X201). I can get a new one delivered from China, but that would take much more time than I have here. Is there somewhere in Lima which stocks such items so I could either go there directly, or somewhere out of Lima but which could have it delivered to where I'm staying within a few days?

Note: Not looking for a zillion-dollar special-air-courier delivery or something like that.

  • @NeanDerThal: 1. I don't have the materials, the tools and probably not the time. 2. A bunch of comments suggest this doesn't necessarily work.

There appears to be an electronics market, Cyberplaza which may have what you need, depending on your luck and how standard that battery is.

If you are staying at a hotel they may be able to suggest sources (including online but in-country to avoid any customs hassle).

MercadoLibre looks to be one of the major online platforms (search lenovo bateria), no idea personally how reliable the sellers there are.

    Taking the first listing I found on mercadolibre points to amptechnology.negocio.site which is a computer repair a shop in Miraflores, Lima alleging to have such a battery. OP could probably do the same with other listings to find alternatives.
