Why do NEC laptop batteries have different capacities?
All laptop batteries are measured in “mAh” (milliampere-hour) and are recognized on all NEC laptop batteries. Battery
capacity size may be different from each laptop model number due to how much power the laptop consumes and the size of
the laptop battery. More electrolyte and electrode material in the battery cells will usually yield a higher capacity
battery, if the battery chemistry is the same. Higher capacity batteries have longer laptop run times and are a lot more
durable. Battery capacity size, voltage, wattage, and battery chemistry type are all important factors for battery measurement.
