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 use the Dell Inspiron 15r 3537 model laptop and i want to replace the battery. It cuurently works with a 4 Cell battery but I want to replace it with a 6 cell  battery. Is it possible to do so ?

A:Can i replace a 4cell battery with 6 cell battery?

It looks like it is possible - however, realize that the 6-cell battery is larger than the 4-cell and will not fit entirely inside the system  -it will extend beyond the rear of the system (along with adding weight, of course).

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.

If HP sells the battery with the laptop then it'll work. While it may not sit flat that isn't a problem.

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.

After my friend's laptop wouldn't run on battery power OR charge the battery I tried many "fixes."
 
Shockingly none worked that I found.
 
Only one thing worked for me to my surprise.
 
A last ditch effort was to open up the laptop (sony pcg-81114L) and disconnect the cmos battery for a few minutes to reset the CMOS.
 
To my surprise, when powered on, the battery instantly showed it was charging AND when removing the power plug the battery POWERS the laptop now! (and I'd thought I was wasting my time.)
 
Worked with an off brand battery also.
 
Many times this has saved many computers that have odd "unsolvable" things wrong with them.
 
Surely someone else has done this also but I haven't seen it posted anywhere to my knowledge.
 
Thank GOD for bringing the idea to remembrance!

Hey, I really need help. I'm having problems with my laptop. It's a dell inspiron 7559 and was bought around January. Recently I have seen that the battery has no longer been as hot as it used to be when I first started using it. Along with the sleeve on the tip of the screen power adapter (below the part where the adapter lights up) has started to come off, exposing the wires. The battery has continually dropped down its percentage rate ever since I bought it, and it won't go back up. It is currently at 0% battery life and it says when you highlight over the battery icon ( plugged in, not charging). It also happens to show the BIO setup when I start the computer and shows that the batteries wattage and type cannot be determined. In the BIOS setup, the ac adapter type is unknown. The battery has not been through any harsh conditions along with the laptop. I have tried removing the battery, starting up the computer with the ac adapter (which is 130 watts), then adding the battery back, and ac adapter, then turning it on, but it had no effects. If I remove my ac adapter while my computer is on ,it instantly turns off. If someone can support me with this issue, it would be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hi there,

I'm having dell inspiron 3521 laptop. My battery is 4 cell (40WAh) and recently it was permanently failed. So, i decided to replace it with new one. The question is if i replace my 4 cell battery with 6 cell battery, will it leads to any problems? Can some one please help me to resolve this.
Thanks in advance.

A:What will happen when i replace my dell 40WAh battery with 60WAh battery for Inspiron 3521?

As long as the battery is otherwise compatible -- and you realize it will increase the weight AND the size of the notebook (while the 4-cell likely fits entirely inside the system, the 6-cell will protrude from the back of the system), you will be fine.  There's also a big reason (safety among them) why OEM batteries cost more than third-party knockoff units, if that's a consideration.

The main problem is that is dangerous and toxic and the battery are indeed defective.
I had other brand of notebook (more than 2) ask me for battery change for free after 5 years from acquiring the pc and completely out of the normal warranty.
Why Dell doesn't mind about their notebook users at all?
Why  they cannot change a battery also if i'm willing to pay some money ( for a service that as been done from other brands and have to be done FOR FREE as it is a product defect )
My notebook status:
The dell post replay is here (Japanese):

Hi ! I need help to determine if I just plug in the samsung evo850 drive with oxdygx cable, onto the motherboard, with the UEFI-bios ask me to initialize the evo850 dirve?  If yes, after format the evo850 as GPT, will the bios manage the 512g pcie ssd as C drive (with windows 10 in it) and evo850 as D drive (data disk)?  
Another question is whether hdd password can be managed by the uefi-bio just like the legacy bios?
Also whether a similiar hdd password can be used on 512 pcie ssd?  

A:newly purchase xps15-9550 pcie 512g ssd 84 wh battery - try to add evo 850 on to the hdd slot, take out the 84 wh battery

The initialization takes place under WIndows - NOT in setup.  UEFI will detect the drive, but you must use the disc manager to partition and format it.

Hopefully you realize you'll need to replace that 84 W-H battery with a 56 W-H unit (the drive needs the space occupied by the extra cells in the larger battery).
Your existing C drive will be unaltered - if you have no other drives attached, the new drive should show up as D>
You should be able to set a password on both drives -- that said, they're not of much security (they can be removed and once that's done, the data is open for access).  Effectively if you have a need for security, drive encryption (bitlocker if you have 10 Pro) is a much, much, much better idea.
Also be advised:  the hard drive password ties the drive to the system.  If for some reason the mainboard gets damaged, the data will not be accessible without the intervention of a data recovery/password removal service, so backups - of both drives -- are ESSENTIAL.

Hoping this problem will be noticed by more people, the original post on this issue came from:https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Linux-Discussion/T470-Linux-Power-Bridge-wrong-discharge-order/td-p/365...https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/63odjr/t470_battery_order_question_internal_discharges/ Brief description: same problem with OS including Win 10, Ubuntu 16.04, Gentoo etc. The internal battery always gets discharged first regardless its remaining power, which is generally harmless but seems not so good for the internal battery life. With my own T470 machine, updated with the latest 1.29 BIOS, this problem remains. According to searching results online, this little bug came with early versions of X's and T' including T460. PS: this issue had been successfully fixed with T460 via BIOS update 1.26, hoping it would be fixed with T470 sooner or later. Best regards.

Hello,
I've been looking around for a battery extender for an adapter with output 6.7A, 19.5Volts -- 130Watts.
No luck so far, as most of the items I found had max 5A output.
Does anyone know of a solution to carrying extra juice on the go for the inspiron 7559? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I have a Dell M5510 precision laptop for business.  Around January 2017, 7 months after owning this laptop the track pad started to come loose. At first I didnt know why, it was very minor, then each month it started to come off more and more. Around 2-3 months ago I stopped being able to use some of the functionality of the trackpad. I finally took the laptop apart to find out the battery had expanded and was causing this issue.  I purchased a M5510 with every upgrade (xeon, 4k, larger battery etc) and figured I would not have any issues as I use this for work. Has anyone else had similar issues on the M5510 Precision series?
It looks like the battery is very swollen in multiple cells and the trackpad looks like its about to blow right off the laptop.  
I'm also not sure how safe it is to use this laptop for business travel now that it looks like the cells are expanding and lithium ion explodes.

A:Dell M5510 battery breaking my trackpad and looks like its ready to explode (4gvgh battery)

So first thing is stop using the computer.  If the cells are expanding that could cause a safety issue.  I would call Dell ASAP and have them replace the battery which is obviously defective.
