Laptop batteries in laptop battery chargers just don’t seem to last long enough. Just about every single laptop computer that we get in for repair here in the shop has either a bad charger or a bad battery. If you’ve ever tried to replace your laptop battery or charger, you will notice that it can be quite expensive. The cost can be quite high considering the short lifespan of batteries and chargers. See our post here to help you with your laptop batteries lifespan.
If you need to replace your laptops battery or charger, a third-party vendor may be the way to go. When we have looked to the original manufacturer of the laptop for replacement batteries and battery chargers, the cost is often over $100 for each part. We use third-party vendors that make replacement batteries and replacement Chargers that work with your laptop, but in most instances usually sell for only $20-$30. I will admit that there may be a quality difference between a factory charger and battery and a third-party charger and battery. I still choose to go with the third-party battery chargers because you can order one with a 1 to 3 year warranty. In my opinion if the third-party charger or battery dies after the first year use, you got your money’s worth since you only pay $20-$30.
