How to Purchase the Right Laptop Battery

When choosing a laptop battery replacement, meeting the manufacturer's specifications is important to prevent damage to your laptop. Information you may need when purchasing a laptop battery replacement includes:

Part Number, Make, and Model

The three most important identifiers when buying a laptop battery replacement are the part number, make, and model of your existing battery. For example, if you own a Dell XPS 13, the make identifies the manufacturer, which is Dell, while the model would be XPS 13. To determine the part number of your battery, simply shut your laptop down, unplug the power cord, and open the battery compartment. The information will be printed directly on the battery.

Voltage, Shape, and Size

Double-check your existing computer battery to ensure you're purchasing a replacement that matches its voltage, shape, and size. If your original battery is rated at 14.4V, try to match that capacity when selecting a replacement.

Laptop Battery Buying Tips

When searching for a replacement computer battery for your laptop, there are a few more considerations to keep in mind. Besides comparing prices and warranty details, use the following laptop battery buying tips to feel confident you've made the right choice:

Know When Your Laptop Battery Needs to Be Replaced

Common signs that it's time to replace your laptop battery include:

  • A fully charged battery dies in just a short amount of time.
  • Your laptop shuts down even when the battery shows a full charge.
  • Your laptop won't turn on even when the power cord is plugged in.

If you've experienced any of these symptoms, your laptop battery most likely needs to be replaced. While there are a few things you can do to extend the life of your battery, in most instances, laptop batteries will need to be replaced after a couple years of use.

Decide Between New and Refurbished Laptop Batteries

While it may be tempting to purchase a refurbished laptop battery to save money, investing in a new one is highly recommended. An older, refurbished computer battery could quickly go bad. In the end, you may save more money by opting for a new one with a longer battery life.

  • Shut down or use hibernate mode to minimize battery drain.
