Best place to get a replacement battery for laptops in IndiaQuestion from Nitin Jhaveri – Which is the best place to get a replacement battery for laptops in India ?
Reason I ask is because I can’t have the Laptop on battery mode even for a minute, without the charging wire connected as else it shuts off instantly. Help me GB. Thanks in advance…!

Hi Nitin,

Are you sure that its the battery and not the charging jack or wire that is faulty?? Try asking a friend to loan his adapter wire for a few minutes to see if the supply is going through.
Another idea for you to try is to take it to the nearest Computer repairs shop and have them checked with other spare adapters to rule out the adapter charging is working properly or not. WHo knows that it may not be charging the Battery at all!
Most people I know using modern laptops use sleep as the most common method of leaving the laptop. For laptops I have had, I always let it sleep for short durations but for longer time periods it will be a drain on the battery so it is a definite no-no for me.
Technically from a fully-charged battery, sleep may last several days.
However, it is not advisable due to the following reasons:
  • Wastage of battery charge reducing its efficiency.
  • Increasing the charge cycles so that also is a minus.
  • Heat generation.
  • Hard disk goes to off mode when battery gets completely drained raising chances of HDD bad sectors.
  • Waste of energy so not a good idea if you are bothered about the green aspect of saving energy.

Regarding your second question here is my answer: There are many places to buy replacement laptop batteries, but my favorite is Amazon(US) (and the Indian Amazon would be the first place to go if you are from India due to faster Shipping).

Why Amazon ? There are several reasons:

  • Price – Amazon has consistently lower prices in almost everything. Why pay more to your laptop manufacturer when you can get the same battery or a high quality equivalent for a lot less on Amazon?
  • Stock variety – Amazon probably has a good selection of recent brands’ replacement batteries to choose from.
  • Trust – Quality of Amazon products will matter a great deal if its something as critical as a Laptop.
  • Free Shipping – Amazon will generally waiver the shipping charges when the order total is $35 (in India it is 499/-) or more.
  • Easy Returns – If you happen to order the wrong battery or if it is defective, no worry. Amazon’s easy return policy makes it easy to return and get a replacement immediately. If the product is defective they will arrange to pick it up or may reimburse the courier cost.
However don’t take my word for it. Read their return policies here to know more.

How to Order a replacement battery for your laptop from Amazon. 

Here’s how:

  • Visit or and type your laptop’s brand and model number along with the keyword battery into the search box, then press Enter. For example, if you need a battery for a Dell Inspiron 15R N5010 you must type the following into the search box:

 Dell Inspiron 15R N5010 battery

  • Browse through the list of replacement batteries presented and select the one you’d like to buy.
 A general rule of thumb is to look for a battery with good reviews + rating on Amazon.
