  • Quality Replacement Laptop Batteries: Part 2

    You get what you pay for with replacement batteries.

    Last week we addressed the topic of whether a replacement laptop battery was as good or better than one from the laptop manufacturer.  When you need a replacement battery, it is always wise to buy one that meets or exceeds the manufacturer's original specifications.

  • I Need a New Battery for my Laptop: Part 1

    Should I buy a replacement battery or one from the manufacturer?

    New replacement batteries for your laptop at Batteryheads.comSooner or later your laptop battery will begin to wear out.  Most of them perform well for 18 months to 3 years, depending upon how heavily they are used.  Then you will notice a slow decline in the ability to take a full charge and eventually it will be time to replace it.

    Most laptop batteries can be recharged 300-500 times before the battery cells begin to wear out. When that decline begins, the battery that used to power your laptop for three hours will now only run for an hour or less. It is time to replace the battery. Continue reading

  • How to Find a Quality UPS Replacement Battery

    UPS Batteries for Power Backup

    Do you have an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) connected to a server, telephone system, workstation or to a home computer? UPS systems are a must for anyone that doesn’t want to experience the frustration of losing data, hours of work or just access to essential electronic equipment during a power outage.

    Setting up a UPS unit is fairly straight forward, put it under the desk or close to the equipment that will be connected to the outlets in the back of the unit. Plug in the equipment that you want to access the back up power generated by the UPS. Then plug the UPS into the wall. That is really all the basic requirements. Some UPS units are more advanced and have load balancing software, and many more fancy features but the general set up and operation of a UPS system is pretty simple. However, what happens when the alarm on the UPS starts going off and signals that it is time to replace the battery in the unit? Continue reading

  • The Power of Free

    Two of the most powerful words in advertising are FREE and NEW. Free samples of food in the aisles of grocery stores always go like wildfire. Perhaps a preference for “free” is a feature that is hardwired into our brains.

    As much as we love the idea of free, we are sometimes suspicious of its value.  Paul Michael of Wise Bread tells the story of an old refrigerator:  A man had just purchased a new refrigerator for his home, and did not want to go to the hassle of selling his old fridge or hauling it away. So he put a sign on it saying “FREE to Good Home” and left it on the curb.  It sat there for days. No one wanted it. So, he put another sign on it saying “Fridge For Sale, $50.”  The same fridge that no one paid attention to was stolen within a day.  This is the reverse problem with free. Either people don’t trust it, or it diminishes the value of something to worthlessness. There’s this attitude of “why is it free; what’s wrong with it?” In the case of the fridge, people clearly thought it was a broken, old, or unusable object, otherwise it would have had a value. By attaching a value to the fridge, that problem was alleviated, and it was stolen.

    Free-Shipping-BadgeBatteryheads.com has been listening to our customers when they asked for FREE SHIPPING.  In this case, free is fabulous and there is nothing wrong with it! Continue reading

  • Replacement Battery for Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

    Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop

    Looking for a replacement battery for an Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop? Are you worried about the battery fitting in your Inspiron 1525?

    At Batteryheads we offer TechFuel brand lithium-ion replacement batteries for the Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.  Our TechFuel Inspiron 1525 replacement battery will fit into the following Dell laptop models:

    • Dell Inspiron 1525
    • Dell Inspiron 1526
    • Dell Inspiron 1545
    • Dell Inspiron 1546
    • Dell Vostro 500
    Dell INSP1525 replacement battery

    Batteryheads has been selling the TechFuel Inspiron 1525 replacement battery since 2008 and this battery is one of our top sellers.  It is an extremely stable battery with very few reported problems, but in case you are not satisfied, we have a 30-day money back guarantee and a 1-year warranty.

    Our TechFuel Inspiron 1525 replacement battery is a 6-cell, 4400mAh capacity battery.  The dimensions of this battery are as follows: Weight 0.66 pounds, Length 8.1 inches, Height 0.9 inches, and Width 2.2 inches.

    We no longer offer the 9-cell extended capacity battery as the Inspiron 1525 (and other compatible Inspiron laptop models) are slender laptops and the 9 cell batteries are thicker and will protrude from the back of the laptop.  We have found that our customers prefer a replacement battery that fits flush with the base of the laptop.

    Our TechFuel replacement battery will replace the following original Dell battery part numbers:

    •         DELL  312-0625
    •         DELL  312-0633
    •         DELL  312-0763
    •         DELL  451-10478
    •         DELL  451-10533
    •         DELL  C601H
    •         DELL  D608H
    •         DELL  GW240

    •         DELL  RN873
    •         DELL  X284G
    •         DELL  XR693

     

    We are often asked about the run time of our batteries.  You should get approximately 2 to 3 hours of run time with this standard capacity 6 cell battery, however it is important to remember that the run time will vary depending upon LCD Brightness and other factors not related to the battery such as: features used, battery age & condition, charging habits, the varying temperatures the battery is exposed to, amount of time on standby and actual use time.  Using programs that draw a lot of energy such as adding charts and graphs to a document or watching a movie, will diminish the run time of your battery.

  • How to Revive a Dead Battery

    battery-doctor-reviveWhen a battery stops holding charge, you have two options: replace the battery, or attempt to revive it. Reviving a battery is a lot different from simply recharging it after normal use. While recharging is simply a matter of connecting it to a charger and waiting for the battery to rebuild its charge, reviving a battery is not a sure thing, and often fails. Below are some methods commonly used to revive dead batteries. Continue reading

  • Evolution of the Modern Battery

    Evolution of the Modern BatteryIn order to learn about the first battery in world history, one must go back to Historic Baghdad. In 1938, German archeologist Wilhelm Konig discovered a jar with asphalt, iron, a copper cylinder, and indications that it was once filled with a liquid of some sort. While there is no guarantee that this was indeed a battery, many experts believe that it was used for some electrical purpose.
