What is the difference between an OEM laptop battery and DuracellDirect's laptop batteries?
We carry replacement Duracell Direct laptop batteries for DEC laptops that will meet or exceed OEM manufacturer
specifications. All aftermarket DEC 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 DEC laptop batteries.
What different types of DEC laptop batteries are there?
There are several different types of aftermarket DEC laptop batteries that you might find on DuracellDirect.
These different DEC 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 DEC
batteries. Each DEC 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 DEC laptops.
Why do DEC batteries have different capacities?
DEC 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. DEC laptop batteries with larger capacities will always last longer than
laptop batteries with lower battery capacities.
How long will my DEC laptop battery last?
Your replacement DEC laptop battery should last a few hours for recording and playback. Recharging your DEC
battery will take one to three hours to reach a full charge, with 80% battery capacity being reached the first hour.
DEC laptop battery lifespan should last for about three years and can handle over 500 discharge / charge cycles.
How safe are DEC laptop batteries and batteries in general? How do I take care of my DEC battery?

UL, CE, FCC and RoHS safety certifications before being sold to our customers.
