  • Comparing HP Pavilion G6 Replacement Laptop Batteries

    Both these batteries fit the same laptops. Find what the real differences are so you are prepared to make a smart decision next time you buy a new laptop battery. #batteryheads Two batteries-both fit the HP Pavilion G6

    Are you looking for a replacement battery for your HP Pavilion G6 and getting confused by all the options? When replacing your laptop battery there are a few differences that you want to understand before you make your purchase and are disappointed with the performance of the new battery.

    Part Number  It is important that you get the right battery to replace your original battery.  There are many laptops with similar part numbers so be careful when you are searching for a replacement battery.  For the battery we are using in this example, the HP Pavilion G6, there are around 4,000 laptop models that use this battery.  We suggest you check your laptop owners manual or pull the battery out of your laptop to find the battery part number listed on the battery and search by that number. This should help narrow down your search but, this battery still has over 40 part numbers including; HSTNN-DBOW, HSTNN-UB1G, MU06, MU09XL and 586006-321.  Your battery part number will also help you know if you are using a standard battery or an extended capacity battery.  If you are currently using an extended capacity battery and replace it with a standard battery you will notice a significant reduction in how long the battery lasts.  If you are using a standard battery you may decide to try an extended battery.
