|Few notebook components are more important than the laptop battery. Without this internal power source, the portability of a laptop would be impossible, so it is very important to have a reliable laptop battery with excellent battery life. There are different battery technologies that use unique methods of storing and providing power, and these differences have advantages and disadvantages. Additionally, you will be able to decide from multiple options involved with purchasing a new laptop battery when it inevitably wears out. Some of our top brands at Spare Parts Warehouse currently are the Compaq laptop battery replacement, the HP notebook battery replacement, the Acer laptop battery replacement, along with Sony and Toshiba laptop batteries and replacements. There are more choices, still, but these are some of the more popular brands.
Today, the most common type of laptop or notebook battery used today is the lithium-ion model. Compared to older technologies such as NiCad and NiMH batteries, Lithium-ion does not exhibit the "memory effect"--something which could cause batteries to prematurely lose capacity if they weren’t properly discharged on a regular schedule. Lithium-ion batteries also have a better power to weight ratio than previous laptop batteries. HP, Compaq, Acer, Sony, Toshiba, Dell, IBM, and Levono notebook and laptop battery replacements are some of the most efficient available, and each offer different features that will suit your needs.
The other most popular laptop or notebook battery types are NiCad (nickel-cadmium) and NiMH (nickel-metal hydride). NiCad is more durable than most other technologies and often used where a rugged battery is necessary. They are more costly to produce, however, and prone to charging problems related to temperature. They also tend to last longer, with more charge and discharge cycles, but are also very expensive. It may be helpful to research some of the HP battery replacements, or perhaps Toshiba battery replacements, for example, before deciding on whether you’d like to or need to invest in one of these NiCad battery-powered laptops.
When shopping for a replacement laptop battery, it is important to ensure that it is compatible with your specific model. Laptop batteries come in many shapes and sizes, as well as different voltages and configurations. Spare Parts Warehouse is committed to helping you identify the proper batter you’ll need, whether it’s an HP or an Acer, an IBM or a Sony. We know our battery replacements and will inform you accordingly.
Replacement laptop batteries generally come in two varieties. The first is an OEM battery, made by the laptop’s manufacturer. The second is a compatible battery made by a third-party. Third-party compatible batteries are designed to meet or exceed the specifications of the OEM battery, but usually at a much lower price. As long as you purchase your compatible battery from a reputable seller with a warranty, you can be assured of both compatibility and quality, and you can rest assured knowing that you did not pay too much for your Compaq replacement laptop battery--whatever the model and make was which you purchased.
You can find third-party batteries if you need an HP battery replacement, a replacement of an Acer battery, or for many other types of laptop brands. Some are easier or harder to come by, but Spare Parts Warehouse does its best to stay a stocked and informed provider of all different brands.
For the most part, you will know when you need a battery replacement when you find that your computer has gradually begun holding its charge for less and less time. When before it held a charge for 4-5 hours, now it may only last a couple hours or less, and eventually it will only run for a matter of minutes before you need to plug it in. This is a completely natural process in battery life, and it simply means that it’s time to search Spare Parts Warehouse to buy a Sony laptop battery or to buy a Toshiba laptop battery. We have them all, so please explore.
