1. How to select the
correct battery for my device?
You can find the correct battery based on your device model number and/or
battery OEM part number. Read the battery description carefully. The right
battery should match our listed battery OEM part number, and compatible
device model number. If you are not sure please contact us and we will pick
the correct one for you.
2. What is the difference between each type (Ni-Cd, Ni-MH and Li-Ion) of
Lithium Ion (Li-ion) batteries do not suffer from the “memory effect”. These
batteries have twice the energy of Ni-MH, although they weigh 30% less. This
is especially crucial for portable items, such as laptops, digital cameras
and camcorders. They are also better for the environment because they don't
contain toxic materials such as Cadmium or Mercury.
Nickel Metal Hydride (Ni-MH) batteries last 50%-100% longer than Nickel
Cadmium batteries. This battery is generally much more environmentally
friendly than Nickel Cadmium.
Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) batteries tend to suffer from “memory effect”. Ni-Cad
batteries SHOULD be fully discharged every 3-4 cycles.
3. Can I upgrade my current battery to a newer chemistry?
Ni-Cd, Ni-MH and Li-Ion are all fundamentally different from one another and
cannot be substituted unless the device has been pre-configured from the
factory to accept more than one type of rechargeable battery technology.
Refer to your owner's manual to find out which rechargeable battery types
your particular device supports.
4. How are batteries rated? (What are volts and amps?)
There are two ratings on every battery: volts and milliamp-hour (mAh). The
voltage of the new battery should match the voltage of your original. Minor
voltage discrepancy is reasonable and acceptable for replacement batteries.
Some Hi-Capacity batteries will have higher amp-hour ratings than the
original battery found in the device. This is indicative of a longer
run-time (higher capacity) and will not cause any incompatibilities.
5. How long do batteries last? and when to change the old one?
The life of a rechargeable battery operating under normal conditions is
generally between 300 to 500 charge-discharge cycles. This translates into
one to three years of battery life for the average user. As the
rechargeable battery begins to die, the user will notice a decline in the
running time of the battery. When a battery that originally operated the
notebook for two hours is only supplying the user with an hour's worth of
use, it's time for a new one.
6. What is the length of running time for your new battery? and how to
extend battery's life?
The length of battery running time for laptop may change a lot, It depends
on the running applications and the external devices connected to your
laptop. Battery running time will decrease over time. When you have a trip
with your laptop, you would like to have a longer battery life. Here are
some suggestions may help you save battery's power.
1. Adjust your screen brightness to the lower level.
2. Shut down unnecessary programs.
3. Remove unnecessary devices.
