Buying a New Laptop Battery
When you rely on your laptop for work or play, having a malfunctioning laptop battery can be a real downer. Having to plug your laptop into the mains because your battery doesn't work really does take the convenience out of having a laptop. Eventually, all rechargeable batteries lose their ability to recharge. How long they last, though will depend on the quality of the materials used to make the battery, as well as how often the battery is used. Luckily, it's usually pretty easy to buy a new battery, popping out the old one to fit the new replacement.
Investing in a HP Pavilion DV6 Battery
If you happen to have a HP Pavilion laptop, working out which battery you need for your particular model may be tricky. To find the product number for the battery on your HP Pavilion DV6, there are two options available to you. You can use the HP Support Assistant on your Windows machine, which will provide your product number, name and serial number, as long as you have the latest software.
Alternatively, check the product label on the bottom of your machine. Bear in mind that depending on your model, this information may be inside the battery compartment. Batteries for HP Pavilion computers are lithium ion batteries, and come in 6 cell or 12 cell sizes, so your product number (which will begin with DV6 followed by other numbers and/or letters) will help determine which battery size you require.
