What is a Dell battery?
Every Dell laptop that Dell sells has a lithium ion battery identified on the exterior of the bottom of the laptop. This is different than any other laptop on the market, and it doesn’t mean that all Dell laptops have a lithium ion battery. It also doesn’t mean that you can use your existing Dell soon if your laptop did not come with this battery identifier. The photograph in this post shows one of those cylindrical batteries inside of a laptop, which is what we want to know what it looks like.
A Dell battery is a type of laptop battery which Dell-branded laptops come with to provide longer battery life. Many people wondered what the different between a Dell battery and a Trojan battery is, but according to Dell, “a generic six-cell Dell laptop battery has a power rating of 25 WHr” while “a generic Trojan 9000 S Series 7 Lithium Ion battery has a power rating of 8.8 WHr”.
Dell batteries are rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that are designed to power Dell laptops, tablets, and desktop computers. The company advertises their batteries as a “buffer to protect your devices” and says that their products have an enhanced design and safety features including: lengthy battery life, non-conductive exterior coating, spring-charged terminals for better connectivity.
How to identify your Dell battery
Your Dell laptop may be dead on the inside but it’s easy to identify what type of battery you have. All Dell laptops come with a label on the bottom letting you know which generation of battery is installed. The current model is 4-cell lithium ion as seen in this example: “Battery/Processor 9Cell/8-Cell Lithium Ion/6-Cell Lithium Ion”. To identify your battery, check this label or order a battery replacement from Dell.
Many people are having trouble identifying their Dell battery. The problem is that the label embedded in the battery casing contains information describing different batteries which might confuse the owner. For example, the label for models GA-02K, SE-02K and PX-320 states that “GA” stands for “General Purpose,” “SE” stands for “Small and thin,” and that “PX” stands to stand for “Precision X.”
If your Dell laptop is not turning on, there might be a problem with the battery. The first step to finding out what the issue is is to charge up your laptop. If it’s still not working, you may have determined that the battery is dead at this point. In order to identify whether or not it is the battery causing the issue, you must dell into Windows and open the power options. There should be an option for critical battery health to tell you if the battery needs replacing.
