Q: I think I need a new cell battery for my netbook.

My netbook won't start up after a turning itself off a few times. I did drop the netbook and it's possible that fins, that connect the netbook to the no battery, are bent. I can't be sure that the problem is the cell battery, but if I buy one, could I try it and return it if it's not that?

Preferred Solution: I think I need a new cell battery for my netbook.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: I think I need a new cell battery for my netbook.

if it turns on while plugged in it will point towards the battery, but it could also be damage to the motherboard where the battery connects.
does the battery light show its charging when connected?
easiest way to see if its the battery is to use a volt meter, if the battery shows a greater voltage than that stated on the battery its self (e.g 18v will be about 21v when charged) then its not likely damaged

Hi, all!

I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

Thanks! Your help is appreciated.

Hi Lenovo experts - I am having a strange issue with my new X270 laptop. I have been using it for over 3 weeks now. The X270 came with an integrated Li-Ion 3-cell battery (23 Wh) and also an external Li-Ion 3-cell battery  (23 Wh). With very light usage (just outlook and office apps) and brightness set to 25%, I can barely get 2h-2.5h of battery life. Is this normal? Per the PSREF, 3+3 cell should give me ~13h of battery life.  Anything else I can check? I did a 'battery report' and I see on average 45 Wh of charging capacity when active. However 'Battery life estimates' show between 2h-3h at full charge. 'Current estimate of battery life based on all observed drains since OS install' is showing 3:50.  Do I have a defective battery? Any advice appreciated!

Someone needs to get a new battery for a very old laptop they have. The battery doesn't work so they have to have it plugged all the time otherwise it wouldn't work. Laptop is 15.6 and sort of heavy but the thing is they never take the laptop outside the house. It will mainly be used on one floor in the house.


100% of the time the laptop is used in the kitchen area where there is a table where its connected using a charger to the wall. Thus if the person had a working battery, they could carry it around the house even though the laptop will stay in one place usually. However because right now the battery doesn't work, it does but it goes out very fast less than 1 minute, they need a new battery.


Is it better to get a 6 cell or 9 cell battery? The laptop will be used at home 100 percent. The thing is this person said if 9 cell last longer, get it. However, im sure 9 cell batteries make the laptop much heavier and has that back part sticking out right? I know this isn't a big deal if you going to stay inside but wouldn't it be a problem/annoyance if you have the laptop on yourself when on the sofa? Does the 9 cell would be really heavy on an already heavy 15.6' laptop?


Also 6 cell batteries last for around 2 hours i believe. How many hours does a 9 cell last for usually?


The thing is majority of the time the laptop will be plugged in but its very annoying at the moment as the laptop has to be connected 100 percent of the time since the battery is no good at... Read more

A:6 Cell Vs 9 Cell Battery for Laptop?

It's a piece of hardware so you're in the right area.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 that has a 48WattHour battery. A 9-cell battery would give longer working time when on battery-only so if it is offered and the price is affordable I'd get it.

As for physically working, it may lift the back edge of the Notebook higher but that's not a problem, usually have rubber feet on them. I find that type of rise is actually easier for typing as most Desktop keyboards have feet to raise the back edge, fingers seem to 'flow' better.

A:6-cell battery and the ext 9-call battery

A 6 cell battery for a laptop is pretty standard and is usually self contained right within the laptop. You can replace that 6 cell battery, with a 9 cell battery. Since the 9 cell battery has more cells and lasts longer, the battery itself is natually larger. So, they often either stick out of the back or out of the bottom of the laptop. Oh yeah, they also weigh more because of the extra cells.

I'm planning to replace the battery I have now since it's rather old and drains relatively quickly. The voltage on my current battery says 10.8v but when I look up the model number and compatible batteries, they are all advertised as 11.1v. Is it okay to use a battery with a higher voltage? I read that the extra 0.3v are negligible and some sources even mentioned that they were essentially the same. Just looking for some reliable and useful information.

Thanks.
 

A:Netbook battery voltage

0.3v more than the original battery is way too small to matter when you're talking about a 10v or 11v battery. It would matter if it was for a tiny torch bulb, but not otherwise.

Just be careful where you buy though. I know that OEM batteries from the netbook manufacturer cost substantially more than compatibles, but OEM batteries have a money-back guarantee and you know you're getting the genuine article, properly tested and no risk of the battery not being recognised by your netbook (it does happen). I've no wish to set alarm bells ringing but just be aware of the risks of buying a so called "compatible" battery.

Hi, can anyone who has a 12 cell battery for their laptop please tell me how long the battery lasts, and what laptop you use. I just want to compare different 12 cell batteries and how long they last according to the laptops they use. Thanks

A:How long does your 12 cell battery last?

I don't have a 12-cell laptop battery, but I just wanted to point out that there's cells and there's cells. The energy storage capacity of different "cells" used by different manufacturers varies widely, as does the current draw by different laptops. A 17-inch "aircraft carrier" laptop is going to consume a lot more juice than an Atom-based 9" unit with an SSD. Hence, their runtimes on a "12-cell battery" will be hugely different.

For what it's worth, I used to have an Asus 1000HE which ran for almost 10 hours on a 9-cell battery (win7), before it was snatched away from me by a family member who was quite happy to resort to underhanded hardware acquisition tactics.

 Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time.  My laptop is 2.5 years old, and I just started getting a notice that it now only has 40% of its original ability to hold a charge.  Windows 7 has the ability to do this I learned.  I just timed it last night, and after an hour even it was down to something like 23%.  If your netbook's over 2 years old, what you're seeing is par for the course.  I checked prices for mine and they vary all over the place with Amazon having them as low as $20, Micro Center having them for around $50, and Toshiba (my laptop's brand) for $75.  I'm sure the Toshiba ones are good, but I'm sure giving serious consideration to one of those Amazon ones that're so much cheaper.  I'm still researching this one.

I have recently purchased an Acer Aspire V Nitro VN7-591G-792U Laptop. It has a 3 cell Li Battery.One of the greatest issues with this model (other than heat) is short battery life.Is there a larger battery that can be purchased for this model? [Yes, I know performance takes current, current causes heat and drains batteries. I am asking if I can get a bigger fuel tank.]

A:Is there a larger battery (6 cell) for the Acer As...

Due to the nature of a intergrated battery, on top of the fact that this battery is probably-definitely custom made only for this type of model, I doubt Acer has a larger battery size for it, attributed to the fact that it would need to be bigger, and also not very much needed. If you need proof, look here: http://i1.wp.com/laptopmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/main-text.jpg What I can suggest is that you go to Windows "Power Options" and mess with the controls to reduce battery use, it doesn't seem to do much, but it really, REALLY does. At the cost of performace, which is really only seen if you are doing heavy, intensive work.

This isn't a definite answer, but statistically it's going to be a CR2032 because they almost always are.  If you don't get a firm answer from another owner who's done this before and happens to remember, I'd either buy a few different sizes (they're only $1-2 each) or just give up on doing it in one sitting.  After all, it's not more work to do it in two separate phases unless you have to go out of your way to protect the disassembled components from kids, pets, etc.

It can probably be re-soldered or replaced -- with a shop having the tools and expertise to do that - but it may cost as much as replacing the board (figure on $150 or more), depending on the system model.

Hi there,
I ordered a Latitude E5570 from Taiwan Dell and opted for a 6-cell 84WHr battery (and M2 SSD as storage, knowing 6-cell and HDD cannot coexist in this machine), but disappointingly when the machine arrived I found out it was only equipped with a 4-cell 62Whr battery. Despite the 6-cell battery has always been marked as available on Taiwan Dell E5570 webpage, Taiwan Dell told me (only after the machine arrived) that it is currently unavailable, but they will not let me return the machine, because according to them it's not an option for customized products.
Frustration aside, right now what concerns me the most is whether or not the 6-cell 84WHr battery will ever be available for ordering from Taiwan Dell, and if not, how can I acquire it. I can't find this battery even on US Dell accessories website.I believe the part number of this battery is either HNH3K or WJ5R2.

I'll assume it's the one that came off the board when you attempted to replace the battery.  If so, and it's not salvageable, you'll likely need to find someone selling a board with the same socket on it as otherwise dead -- and remove and salvage the socket from the dead board.
This is not a part you're going to be able to buy separately from a mainboard.

Hello -  My x220 does not lock into  Mini Docking Station Series 3 that I bough recently. The rubber pads on the battery seem to be preventing the laptop from being docked. (Not sure if I am doing something wrong instead.) Also I am trying to set up a multi monitor display ( Dell U2415). Will appreciate some inputs on how I should resolve both the issues or a link if that has been covered before .

i have a hp pavilion dv7-core i5,17.3" screen and the battery is a 9 cell li-ion-93hr but it can't go past 3 hours on battery power even on power saver mode and discrete graphics turned off(always on intel HD graphics)..is this normal?
i never game,just listening to music,watching movies and mostly browsing the internet.

A:9 cell battery not living up to its "potential"

It's impossible to say if it is normal or not because there are two many other variables that factor in. The only way to know for sure is if you had a lower cell battery to compare it to. Considering you have a 17.3" screen, 3 hours sounds like a great number. The larger the screen, the more power it draws. Typically, people with that large of a laptop screen aren't too concerned with battery power, as they aren't lugging it around that often. Those laptops are usually referred to as desktop replacements.

So I made a post over on seven forums but I was told to bring it over here...

I have a Dell Vostro 3650 running Windows 8.1 The battery was giving me about 30 minutes battery life so I bought a new, 9 cell, OEM battery.The "Probl

em" with the 9 cell battery is that it seems that Windows 8 is not really detecting the battery? I'm not sure. It will only tell me "unknown time remaining". It will not give me a notification of when the battery is going to die (Except the physical red button lighting on the front of the computer).

In terms of battery life, the battery works fine. I get hours and hours of battery life so I know the battery is functioning properly. In the BIOS, it is detected as battery performing regularly. I don't know why it is not showing the time. I tried uninstalling the Microsoft ACPI drivers in device manager and rebooting but nothing changed. I was a able to SHORTLY borrow a similar laptop to mine, but running windows 7. The time remaining was being displayed.

My Bios version is on the latest version. Why is this happening

The Battery was bought directly from DELL.

I have tried calibrating the battery. How to Calibrate Your Laptop

I downloaded a program called battery bar... And while not perfect, the program is able to give me estimated time remaining.. Length of time the laptop has been on battery. Why can this program do it, but windows cannot?
