Your laptop is more than just a computer. It follows you to the office, the airport, your vacation spot, or maybe just your backyard. Giving it new life with a fresh battery can be a confusing process, so here is a simple checklist to help walk you through the process.

1. Know Your Laptop Brand and Model:

You may already know that you have a Dell Inspiron or Sony Vaio laptop, but knowing the precise model number can significantly decrease the time it takes to find your replacement battery. Often, the model number will be printed right on the laptop or possibly displayed in a label on the bottom of your laptop. The laptop model information may also be printed on the inside of your battery compartment. 

Power down your laptop first, unplug the power adapter, and open the battery compartment to check for model information.

2. Know Your Battery Model Number & Find it Online:

If you can't find the make and model of your laptop, the battery itself will often have a model number on it as well.

This can sometimes be the quickest way to locate your battery online. offers a fast and convenient search process. Our "smart" search bar is located at the top of our site.

Simply start typing typing the model number, brand, or name associated with the battery that you need and we will return your results immediately. It's the fastest way to get all of your battery needs! 

Many online Battery stores may also offer alternative replacement laptop batteries or a Factory OEM battery, giving you more options to choose from. Searching for a Macbook Battery model A1175 may help you find compatible batteries that are more affordable.

3. Verify Before you Buy:

It's always a good idea to look closely at the images of the battery you are about to purchase. If the battery connector doesn't look like the same connector on your current battery, this may not be the right one. If for some reason you don't have the old battery anymore or if you have already recycled the battery, you can always check the connectors on the back of the laptop itself to see if they match the battery you are about to buy.

Once again, look at the back of your laptop, in the example graphic above, we've included a Dell Latitude D600 Laptop. When inspecting your laptop, be sure to look at the compartment where the battery would fit (labeled Battery Connector). If your new battery is shaped differently, has a different connection slot, or simply doesn't look like it will fit, it's time to contact the website call center to see if they can verify whether the battery is correct or not.
