Question about a new battery for my laptop.

granny2anbMay 3, 2011

The battery in my Compaq Presario laptop loses it's power after less than an hour. In searching the net for a replacement battery I found batteries with the following capacities - 4400, 7800 or 10400. The prices range from $35.00 for the 4400 to $73.00 for the 10400. Is the capacity what determines how long the battery will last?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Yes more amperes capacity last longer.

Just make sure its for your laptop model.. you want it to fit the hole and match contacts.

I got a great deal from a battery supply store that also has an ebay store, the same battery that was in mine and the price was great, you may want to check ebay.

Thanks mikie. The ones I'm looking at have the same exact number as the one that came with the laptop.

Thanks ravencajun. I'll check ebay.
