So I researched and found this link: http://blog.laptopmag.com/dell-refreshes-small-business-vostro-3000-line-12-hours-of-battery-life-starts-at-499
It seems they have made a 'version 2' you could call it of my Vostro 3000. I bought this laptop 2 years ago before the refresher and they added the features in the link. Before, my laptop had a battery life of less than an hour without the charge cord.
According to the article, the newer model has 6-12 hours depending on which battery you get.
I was wondering if it was possible to simpy just buy the new battery for this new model and put it into my older model? Would it fit and work for my older model? Will this prevent my overheating? I would love for this to work since it'd be much more battery life which would be great. According to the picture, it looks the same size as my model
I cant seem to find the research to answer these questions though. Also, I cant find a link where they sell simply the battery for this newer model.
Can anyone help?
