O/T Laptop Battery question.

Recommended Posts

OK...I've got a 2 year old Dell Inspiron and the battery will only last about 30 minutes MAX and then you just about can't make it to the AC plug in before it shuts down.

 

My battery light is flashing green-orange-orange.

I'm sure I need to get a new battery so I wanted to ask you guys.....

 

*Where do you get your batteries from?

 

I went to Durcell Direct dot com and they seem to be cheaper with a 1-year warranty.

 

BUT....

 

*I also went to Laptop Battery Depot dot com and theirs is about $50 dollars cheaper WITH A CLAIM that their batteries are a HIGHER quality and that they MFG their own batteries.

Shipping is FREE and their batteries come with a 2 YEAR Warranty.

 

So what do you guys think?

I need a battery.

 

Thanks in advance! :):D

Check out the power available - I've discovered there's 2 available for my T43 - one's a 6 cell and the other's a 9 cell. The 9 cell obviously lasts a lot longer. (mAh).

YEah, I'm comparing 9-cell to keep an apples to apples comparison....uhhh...no pun intended. :D

 

Hey Elwood....just checked that site and the prices are good, but still not as low as laptopbatterydepot.com

 

Thanks for the advice you guys!

If you have more...keep it coming. :)

2 years use of a laptop battery is pretty good. Damn good. Most start showing signs of going downhill after a year.

 

Some one mentioned and 9 cell. 9 Cells is better.

 

I have no idea where the laptop companies come up with their battery times. It must be turned on with no programs running and left alone. My current Toshiba advertised battery times of over 2 hours. With a fresh battery the most computing time I have got is about an hour.

 

Peace
