I purchased a new Acer Aspire T180 from Comet, but the time is always wrong,
when I start it, it can be 10 am even if it is 5pm. I correct it but the next time
I start it it's wrong again.

I expect it's the battery, the thing is, what battery do I purchase? are they all the same?

Thank you

I'd say just pop the battery off the motherboard and sneaker it down to Radio Shack. Let them figure it out.

Be prepared to lose any custom BIOS settings, though,

What about the warranty?

I'd have to agree with Amazing Andrew and buddy215 on this....if the warranty won't cover it (they should send you a free one), then pull the battery out and radio shack (or a local computer store) should be able find you a suitable replacement. Sometimes the battery type/model is printed on the battery itself, so a store should have no problem replacing it. You can also hit up Acers website to try to find a replacement battery.
