Find a Replacement Battery for an ASUS EEE Laptop
Laptop batteries wear out and lose their ability to hold a charge. When they do, you can find replacement batteries that will keep you on the go without the need for a power cord for your ASUS EEE laptop.What are watt-hours and milliampere-hours?
Watt-hours (Wh) and milliampere-hours (mAh) are measurements of electrical power delivered over time. You will often see these listed to describe how long a laptop battery will last before needing a recharge. A watt-hour is a measure of power over time while a milliampere-hour is a measure of electric current over time. In both cases, a higher number means the battery's charge will last longer than another battery with a lower number. The actual amount of time a charge lasts depends on the amount of power a laptop consumes each hour. Laptops can use varying amounts of power depending on their design and also what they are being used for from hour to hour.What's the difference between 3-, 6-, 9-, and 12-cell batteries?
The number of cells increases the amount of electric charge a battery can hold. A laptop battery is a series of lithium-ion cells packaged together in a plastic case. Lithium-ion cells are generally equal from one battery to the next, so additional cells mean it will take longer for the battery to need to be charged again.How long do laptop batteries last?
Lithium-ion batteries have a lifespan that is measured as a number of cycles or recharges. Laptop batteries can have lifespans that range between 500 and 900 cycles depending on their design. The actual amount of time a battery will last measured in calendar days will depend on how often you recharge it.How is a laptop battery replaced?
Replacing a laptop battery varies with each laptop's design. Many laptops have a locking mechanism that pops the existing battery out of the bottom of the laptop's frame, and a replacement battery snaps into place when pressed into the same place. Other laptops can have covers that are removed to access the battery. In either case, the orientation to insert a laptop battery is usually determined by its shape. Most are designed to make installing them backward impossible.For which ASUS EEE laptops are there replacement batteries available?
