What is the difference between an OEM netbook battery and DuracellDirect's netbook batteries?
We carry replacement Duracell Direct netbook batteries for Dell netbook that will meet or exceed OEM manufacturer
specifications. All aftermarket Dell netbook battery products come with a full one year warranty, and carry
various UL, CE, RoHS and FCC safety certifications. Aftermarket netbook batteries are built with high quality
materials and newer technology which makes them longer lasting netbook batteries, safe, and have an advantage over
OEM Dell netbook batteries.
What different types of Dell netbook batteries are there?
There are several different types of aftermarket Dell netbook batteries that you might find on DuracellDirect.
These different Dell 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 netbook battery chemistry type for Dell
batteries. Each Dell netbook 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 Dell netbook.
Why do Dell batteries have different capacities?
Dell netbook battery capacity is measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour). Many different factors affect netbook
battery capacities: in particular, netbook battery cell size, voltage, wattage, and even the battery chemistry type.
The more electrolyte and electrode material there is in the netbook battery cells, the larger the capacity will be
if the chemistry make up is the same. Dell netbook batteries with larger capacities will always last longer than
netbook batteries with lower battery capacities.
How long will my Dell netbook battery last?
Your replacement Dell netbook battery should last a few hours for recording and playback. Recharging your Dell
battery will take one to three hours to reach a full charge, with 80% battery capacity being reached the first hour.
Dell netbook battery lifespan should last for about three years and can handle over 500 discharge / charge cycles.
