Not All Laptops are the same
When it comes to laptops, certainly not all of them are the same. Pretty obvious, right? You’ve got different sizes, speeds, capacity requirements, and the list goes on and on. The same is true when you look at your laptop battery.
One thing that is often overlooked, though, when selecting a laptop is the battery. Does your laptop have an easily removable battery, like the Dell Precision 7710 shown above? If so, it’s very easy to purchase a replacement and perform that work on your own. Just take out your old battery and put in the new one.
However, there are cases where a battery is contained inside the laptop, and can not be replaced so easily. One example is my Macbook Pro. The battery is inside the guts of the laptop, which makes replacing the battery more of a chore to accomplish. It is certainly doable if you have the right tools and equipment and patience and care, but these sorts of repairs are often worth having a tech person help out with.
The battery shown above is for an HP laptop. As you can see, this battery will require opening up the laptop to remove the old battery and installing the new. In cases like this, it makes sense to at least talk with an IT service technician to make sure you understand all of the details, and that you get the right battery to begin with also!
