Are laptop batteries different?

Laptop batteries are normally Lithium-Ion batteries as they give a very good ratio of power to weight. Lithium-Ion batteries are the most durable type of rechargeable batteries available on the market today. Another great benefit of Lithium-Ion is that they do not have what is called the ‘memory effect’. What this means it that Lithium-Ion batteries do not have to be fully charged to have a full charge the next time.

Over time there has been experimentation with many other types of batteries for laptops, but it has been proven that the best laptop batteries are the Lithium-Ion type. Lithium-Ion laptop batteries are incredibly long lasting, but they do not have infinite life and eventually they must be replaced.

As the laptop batteries age, they become less able to hold a charge, so once that happens it is time to replace the laptop batteries. Most laptop manufacturers highly recommend that you should replace the laptop batteries with batteries that have been made or authorized for use with your specific brand of laptop.

The newer types of laptop batteries have a rapid charge feature. This means that instead of taking hours to charge the laptop batteries, the rapid charge ability can charge 80% capacity within one minute. These laptop batteries are more expensive and not as long lasting as the older types of laptop batteries, but they are useful depending on your circumstances.
