What is the difference between an OEM laptop battery and DuracellDirect's laptop batteries?
The difference between an OEM Asus laptop battery and an aftermarket Asus laptop battery is DuracellDirect provides
aftermarket batteries that will either meet or exceed OEM specifications. Each laptop battery from DuracellDirect comes
with a full one year warranty and meets various UL, CE, RoHS and FCC certifications. You will find that aftermarket
laptop batteries will have a better build quality and electronic internals, which gives them an advantage over OEM
laptop batteries with increased battery life, safety and durability.
What different types of Asus laptop batteries are there?
If you look at the battery chemistry type for your Asus laptop battery, it could be one of the following: Li-Ion
(Lithium Ion), Li-Poly (Lithium Polymer), Ni-Cad (Nickel Cadmium), or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride). Each laptop battery
chemistry type has specific benefits over the other, ranging from a longer overall life cycle, longer life per charge,
faster charge time, stability, weight and size. But, all four types of batteries are compatible for each specific
laptop model as a high quality replacement laptop battery.
Why do Asus laptop batteries have different capacities?
Laptop battery capacities may vary because some laptops require more power than others and include multiple factors.
These laptop battery factors range from battery capacity size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type.
The capacity of an Asus laptop battery is measured in milliampere-hour, abbreviated as “mAh”. If a replacement laptop
battery has more electrolytes and electrode material versus the OEM laptop battery, then the replacement laptop battery
will have a larger battery capacity if the internal battery cell chemistry is the same type. A bigger laptop battery
capacity will always have a longer battery life off of one charge.
How long will my Asus laptop battery last?
Your Asus laptop battery should last on an average of 3 years and is capable of over 500 discharge / charge cycles. On
a full charge, your replacement Asus laptop battery should run for at least several hours. Recharging takes between one
to three hours, with 80% of the battery capacity being reached within the first hour.
Please take into account that extreme conditions can change your Asus laptop battery life. A heavily used laptop
battery that is abused and run hard will not last as long as a laptop battery that is used once a week on an infrequent
basis. However, all of our laptop batteries are tested at high industry standards of charging and discharging over 500
times within its lifespan.
