How to Put Your Old Laptop Battery To Rest
No matter how much technology increases and battery life extends it’s an inevitable fact that one day your laptop’s power source will need to be replaced. It becomes obvious pretty quickly when you need a new battery: Your notebook will no longer be able to hold a charge and power down quickly even after long periods of recharging. The silver lining is that replacing a laptop battery is easy and relatively inexpensive.

Disposing of Old Batteries
Don’t throw a laptop battery away with the rest of the trash. In many communities batteries and other computer electronics are considered toxic waste. Depending on where you live, the fine for throwing away a battery could be pretty steep. Often your old batteries can be returned to the retailer where the equipment was purchased. Many automotive stores also take used batteries.
How to Replace a Laptop Battery
Replacing a battery on a laptop isn’t as difficult as you may think. Follow these steps to safely replace a battery:
Turn off your laptop and disconnect the AC adapter. Release the latch and other devices that hold your battery in place. Slide the old battery out of its storage bay. Avoid touching the contacts on the battery itself or inside the bay. Oil on your fingertips could end up reducing the charge. Make sure the new battery is the correct model for your laptop. Slide it into its compartment. Close the computer’s latch to lock the battery into place. Connect the AC adapter and give the battery a full charge before use.
Ordering The Right Replacement Battery
Make sure the battery you order is compatible with the manufacturer and model type of the specific laptop you own. For example, if you own a Dell Inspiron 1300 you’ll want to purchase a 312-0416 laptop battery to ensure compatibility.
