If you're looking for a replacement battery for your laptop, the first step is to identify the type of battery you need. The easiest way to do this is to turn off and unplug your laptop, then remove the battery and look at it. Most batteries have a set of information printed on them, including the type of battery, its model number, a part number, its voltage, and the charging current. Today, the lithium-ion battery is the most common type, although older laptop computers may have a nickel-cadmium or nickel-metal hydride battery.
You can also look up any number on your current battery - it can be on a label or printed on the case - in the search box located in the blue bar at the top of this page. If your battery is on the recall list, contact the laptop manufacturer to have it replaced as soon as possible. In addition, check the PC manufacturer's website before ordering a replacement battery to ensure that you are not only ordering the correct replacement battery, but also that you are not buying a battery that has been recalled. If your laptop's battery is not easy to remove or is not clearly marked, there are some third-party utilities that can be used to determine what type of battery should be placed in a laptop.
Keep in mind that we often have more than one battery listed for any voltage and combination, but each product appears with an image and dimensions to help you identify the correct replacement battery. You won't necessarily buy the same type of battery that comes with your HP laptop when you go looking for a replacement. Knowing what type of battery your HP laptop has when you need to buy a replacement or replacement is essential. With this information in hand, you can easily find the right replacement battery for your laptop.
