Hi i recently bought a G53J-A1 gaming laptop from asus. I noticed the battery life isnt over 2 hours and drains quite rapidly, I was wondering what i am able to buy to make the battery life longer? the laptop battery is 8 cell and this is my first laptop i bought. Can you guys give me links to good quality but not to expansive attachments or replacement battery to make the life longer? thanks!
thanks for the quick response. I am in canada and dont want to pay a lot of money to get it shipped from europe tho. Prefer to buy from canada/us and another question is that is it possible to use a 6cell battery instead of a 8cell? because i heard 6cell lasts longer
Saw a 6 cell battery in the UK but cannot find it in the US.
if you find it, I think it was a 4400mAh 14.6v, it should work.
If your battery is relatively new do not expect a new battery of the same a/hr rating to last any longer. What it will do is alow you to swap batteries when AC power is not available.
It looks like the 8-cell 5.4 A/Hr battery is the larges capacity battery you can get.
DO NOT expect to get the "Advertized" run time. - Rating are for very low power conditions and normal usage decreases this time considerably. Gaming and watching a DVD can cut the "Advertized" time amost in Half.
hmm it looks like the place you bought it from has played up you must check http://richbattery.com they have great quality batteries my battery works fine for 3 hours i have dell inspiron laptop
