Rebuilding Laptop Battery

Recommended Posts

Was planning to rebuild my Compaq Presario 17XL battery and came across this forum that was quite informative:www.farstand.com/cgi-bin/pcg-c1/Forum.exe?0148

 

Would probably cost me around USD 60 to rebuild the bat as compared to paying USD 120 or more for a new bat. Even OEM cost USD 89 and they don't ship to my part of the world.

 

Does anyone else has any experience in rebuild/repacking their laptop battery? Would like to do somemore research in case I "toast" my laptop! Touch wood ....

Yippee, managed to pull it off with no adverse effects. The new cells are able to last bout 3 hours (my old ones would die in 5 mins) and the smart battery is able to recalibrate after one cycle of full charge and discharge, in other words, I have a "new" bat for 1/3 the cost of one ;)
