For those who use their laptops extensively, one of the biggest problems that they encounter with their device is its battery. Everything else could still be good with, it could still run the programs that are needed, it is still fast but its battery is draining really fast. Normally, one would be told that there is nothing that can be done for it. In such cases, it is generally recommended that one should just buy new batteries. But is that really the only move that is left to the owner of the laptop?
Is it Possible to Repair Laptop Batteries?
A lot of people are concerned about the possibility of repairing defective laptop batteries. The truth is that a laptop battery is not designed to be repaired by an ordinary user. There are no user serviceable parts inside it nor are there any parts that can be taken out and replaced with a new one.
Hiring a Technician for Battery Repair
It is a different matter however if a technician who knows how to work devices will be the one who will try and repair the laptop battery. Since he knows how it really works and how to deal with it, he can take it apart and work with it.
What a Technician Can Do
What can a computer repair technician do to a laptop battery to make it work better or maybe even repair it? The details are rather technical and you wouldn’t really understand it if you don’t have a solid grasp of electronics or how electrical systems work.
They can improve the performance of an old laptop battery by replacing cells. These batteries are made up of two components. The first is the electronic circuit and then there is part made up of chemical sells which serves as the actual storage of the energy. There are several cells to each battery and sometimes not all of them would be depleted at the same time. A technician can then improve the performance of a battery for a laptop by replacing the weak cells.
A Complicated Process
Replacing a weak cell is easier said than done. It is a complicated process that would take experience and skill in working with circuits. Add to that is the fact that these parts are really not designed to be replaced.
Since this is a complicated process that would take time a technician might charge you a great deal of money. Because of that it might just be better if you just buy a new battery.
