For most people, a laptop is the most important piece of equipment in their home office. Like many things though, it’s only as good as the battery that powers it. While your battery’s life cycle will vary, an average battery will last around 300-400 charge cycles. For most people that works out to a battery life of about one to two years. If your laptop is running out of power too quickly or prone to sudden crashes, it’s most likely due to your battery. Other warning signs include slow recharge times and overheating. If you experience any of these issues, it’s probably time for a battery replacement.
Fortunately, the experts at your local Batteries Plus Bulbs can help. We carry batteries for Apple, Compaq, Dell, IBM and dozens of other brands. It’s easy to locate the right battery for your laptop brand and model online. Or, simply stop in to any of our stores for help finding exactly what you need.
One quick note on installation. If you cannot easily remove the battery on your own, it likely requires special equipment in order to replace it. If that's the case, it's best to seek out the services of a professional. The experts at your local Batteries Plus Bulbs can replace your laptop's battery both quickly and safely, without fear of damaging your valuable equipment.
UPS Backups and Surge Protectors
A UPS system (short for Uninterruptible Power Supply) provides businesses with a valuable source of backup power to help keep them running in the event of a sudden loss of power. Many UPS systems also provide surge protection to help protect computers and other equipment from damage caused by electrical storms.
Chances are your company’s office facilities already have a UPS system in place, but what about your home? While working remotely, your equipment is far more vulnerable to the impact of storms and power outages. With many of us remaining home for the foreseeable future, now might be a good time to invest in a UPS system of your own or check the batteries in your system if you already have one in use.
We offer a number of UPS systems from APC. The 450VA 6-Outlet UPS, 650VA 7-Outlet UPS and 900VA 9-outlet UPS systems are all ideal for home use. You’ll also find a selection of surge protectors and replacement batteries for UPS systems.
The Little Extras
We also have those miscellaneous items you never seem to have around when you need them. Do you need some extra alkaline batteries for your wireless mouse? How about some gear ties or cord bytes to help you stay organized? We have all of that in stock, as well as LED light bulbs to help light your workspace.
Cell phone repair
As each of us does our part to practice social distancing, mobile communication is more important than ever. A broken cell phone can hamper your ability to stay connected with co-workers, family and friends.
If your valuable devices have become damaged, we can provide you with the tablet or cell phone repair you need to help you get reconnected. We repair phone models from all major brands and offer an extensive list of services. Whether you need an iPhone screen repair, Samsung Galaxy S5 battery replacement, or repairs for broken ports, buttons, speakers and more, we have you covered. Plus, we offer a full selection of replacement cell phone batteries as well.
Our priority is the health and safety of both our customers and employees. Customers can continue to find what they need online or take advantage of curbside pickup options using our buy online, pick-up in store option. As always, our associates remain onsite to answer all of your questions either in person or via phone.
