What does standard or expanded mean when replacing the battery for my Dell Inspiron 14R, 15R, N4110, N5030, N5110, or J1KND laptop? Do milliamp or mAh really matter? Why is one battery bigger?
A standard battery usually has specifications very similar to the battery that originally came in your laptop. The fit will be the same and the laptop battery will fit flush with the bottom and back of the laptop.
Extended batteries have more cells and more capacity. Because they have more power there needs to be a place to put that power. Currently, this battery has added that space by placing it below the original battery shape. This battery will raise your laptop about 3/4 inch with two rubber feet added to increase stability.
Milliamp Hours or mAh will help you compare how long your battery will last per charge cycle. So a battery that is 4400 mAh will last half as long as a battery that is 8800 mAh. Currently our standard batteries to replace the Dell Inspiron 14R, 15R and 17R are 4400 mAh and our extended batteries are 6600 mAh. So the extend battery will last about 1.5 times as long as the standard battery.
Which Battery Should YOU Buy?
Standard Battery You will want to purchase the standard battery if you have limited space in a travel bag. You may also prefer not to have your laptop keyboard raised. If you are packing your battery, but have opportunity to recharge more frequently you may want the standard battery to keep the weight down a little.
Extended Battery You will want to purchase the extended battery if you need your laptop to have a longer run time. If you are having issues with your laptop overheating you may prefer the extended battery so that it will raise the laptop off of the working surface and allow for better circulation.
