The following FAQs are some of the most common questions our customers meet before purchasing a product. Please contact our customer service department if you have other questions.


The first thing to know is what the device model or battery part number is, such as the Toshiba Satellite A105, PA5170U-1BRS, etc. There is usually a label on the original battery indicating the part number.
If you cannot locate your battery by your laptop model, please look up and search by your original battery part number. Our compatibility listings are constantly being updated and not all laptop models may be listed. If you cannot find a battery by the laptop model or battery part number, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you in finding your laptop battery.
The best way to determine how long a new battery will last is to follow these steps:
  1. Find the capacity of your current battery.
    e.g. 1000 mAh.
  2. Think back to when your current battery was brand new. How long did it used to last in minutes? It's important to think when it was new as all batteries deteriorate with age.
    e.g. about 60 minutes.
  3. Divide the total minutes (Step 2) by the capacity of your current battery (Step 1)
    e.g. 60/1000 = 0.06
  4. Multiply the results from Step 3 by the capacity of the battery you are looking to purchase.
    e.g. if the new battery was 1200 mAh you would calculate as follows 0.06 x 1200 = 72 minutes
When replacing your laptop battery, you should always choose a battery with the same voltage as your original. There are however a couple of exceptions to this rule; For example voltages from the same pairs below, are compatible:
  • 3.6V / 3.7V
  • 7.2V / 7.4V
  • 10.8V / 11.1V
  • 14.4V / 14.8V
  • 21.6V / 22.2V
Yes. The capacity of a battery does not affect its compatibility in anyway. A higher capacity battery will simply power your device for longer before you need to charge it.
It is important to check the dimensions and weight in addition to the capacity because sometimes higher capacity batteries can be larger in size, making them impractical for some uses even though they are compatible.

MilliAmpere hour (mAh) is a unit of electric charge, Watt-hour (Wh) is a measure of energy. Both are small-scale units and used on batteries often.

Milliamp-hours to watt-hours calculation
The energy E(Wh) in watt-hours is equal to the electric charge Q(mAh) in milliamp-hours times the voltage V(V) in volts (V) divided by 1000:
E(Wh) = Q(mAh) × V(V) / 1000

For example, the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro battery at 8000mAh and 7.4v would be 59.2Wh (7.4v*(8000mAh/1000)).

This number indicates the number of individual cells used to make up the laptop battery. The more cells, the higher the capacity of the battery. Generally, the battery with the lowest number of cells is the standard battery that came with your laptop. The 9-cell or 12-cell batteries are the extended, higher capacity batteries that will provide you much longer run-time on a single charge. Before purchasing a battery with more cells, you need to weigh up the benefits vs the extra size and weight, especially if you carry your laptop around with you all day.
No. We use the same quality components as laptop manufacturer's use in their batteries. The only difference is that our batteries are not labeled or branded.
Even the Leading Name Brand Laptop Batteries Are Manufactured Using Components From Third Parties.
Consumers often view OEM laptop batteries from brands such as Apple, Dell, Toshiba, HP, and others as being superior simply because of the name-brand. The truth is that name brand laptop batteries are manufactured using various components from other companies. Samsung, LG, and Texas Instruments are world renowned for the quality, safety, and lifespan of their battery components and are used in the assembly of most laptop batteries.
We specialized only in laptop batteries and work closely with the manufacturer to produce only the highest quality batteries. Only name brand battery cells and circuit boards are used in our batteries. Our prices are so much lower than OEM batteries because we manufacture our own casings and cut out the costs to brand or label our batteries, which in turn reduces any additional cost to our customers.
In general, a laptop battery will provide between 400-800 life cycles depending on usage and battery quality. Lower quality or poorly manufactured batteries will provide fewer cycles, and a shorter overall lifespan.
  • Highest Quality Batteries (Grade A Cells) - 12-18 months
  • Medium Quality Batteries (Grade B Cells) - 10-15 months
  • Low Quality Batteries (Grade C Cells) - 5-10 months
LaptopBatt ensures that our world-class batteries will perform as well or better than name brand OEM batteries, and will provide you with the longest lifespan and highest performance possible at the lowest prices anywhere.
We believe that 99.99% of batteries on marketplaces like eBay and Amazon are mislabelled to gain a competitive edge. If you think you're getting a 5200 mAh battery think again, it is likely that the real capacity will be closer to 4000 mAh.
In addition to mislabelling batteries, low-quality cells are used, it's the only way marketplace sellers can reduce the price and make a profit.
LaptopBatt exists as an alternative to the high priced originals and the poor quality replacements by providing the best balance of price and quality with the best customer experience.
