My question is about my laptop battery. I guess this would fall under Internal Hardware I couldn't find a better spot for it. What do I need to look for to get the best battery? Wich is better 8 cell 5200 mah or 3 cell 2200 mah? Plus I see different voltages. Like the 8 cell is 14.4v and the 3 cell is 10.8v Im just not sure what to buy. This is just 2 of the different ones that come up when I search Ebay for a battery for this NC8000 laptop. Thanks for any help.

When you are looking for a replacement laptop battery, the first place to look is at your existing battery - it has a model number. It will also list its output voltage and, normally, its capacity. You will want to replace it with one that matches these specifications.

 

The simplest way to find a correct replacement battery is to google for the battery model number, ie enter something like this into Google :

 

HP battery Model ABC123

 

putting in the model number you took off the battery instead of 'ABC123' !

 

Laptop manufacturers are like car manufacturers - just because it says Ford Focus on the bonnet doesn't mean to say that your one is identical to your neighbour's. And, for what it's worth, I would say those two batteries you mentioned are definitely NOT interchangeable !

I think you are, but as I said, the place to start looking is on the battery itself.
