AST Laptop Information:
What is the difference between an OEM laptop battery and DuracellDirect's laptop batteries?
We carry replacement Duracell Direct laptop batteries for AST laptops that will meet or exceed OEM manufacturer specifications. All aftermarket AST laptop battery products come with a full one year warranty, and carry various UL, CE, RoHS and FCC safety certifications. Aftermarket laptop batteries are built with high quality materials and newer technology which makes them longer lasting laptop batteries, safe, and have an advantage over OEM AST laptop batteries.

What different types of AST laptop batteries are there?
There are several different types of aftermarket AST laptop batteries that you might find on DuracellDirect. These different AST battery chemistry types are: Li-Ion (Lithium Ion), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Li-Ion is a fairly common laptop battery chemistry type for AST batteries. Each AST laptop battery chemistry type has advantages and disadvantages, such as longer life per charge, longer overall life cycle, weight, size, faster charge time, or stability. All four battery chemistry types are universally accepted in AST laptops.

Why do AST batteries have different capacities?
AST laptop battery capacity is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). Many different factors affect laptop battery capacities: in particular, laptop battery cell size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type. The more electrolyte and electrode material there is in the laptop battery cells, the larger the capacity will be if the chemistry make up is the same. AST laptop batteries with larger capacities will always last longer than laptop batteries with lower battery capacities.

How long will my AST laptop battery last?
Your replacement AST laptop battery should last a few hours for recording and playback. Recharging your AST battery will take one to three hours to reach a full charge, with 80% battery capacity being reached the first hour. AST laptop battery lifespan should last for about three years and can handle over 500 discharge / charge cycles.

How safe are AST laptop batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my AST battery?
DuracellDirect replacement AST laptop batteries, chargers and accessories are very safe, tested and hold various UL, CE, FCC and RoHS safety certifications before being sold to our customers.

Aftermarket AST batteries from DuracellDirect are very durable but need to be taken care of properly to ensure a long lasting laptop battery. Avoid leaving your laptop battery in poor environments that include hot temperatures, freezing temperatures, rain, moisture, high impact, and abusive conditions which can damage or void your AST laptop battery. Do not disassemble your AST laptop battery as it can damage the internal battery cells and short circuit the internals. If your AST battery becomes defective, please check to see if it is still under warranty. If your AST battery is out of warranty, make sure it is disposed of at your nearest battery recycling center.
