Laptop External Battery - An External Battery: Your Laptop's New Best Friend

batteries computer life user

All laptops come with an internal battery – the part that powers the computer when the user is away from a power outlet. Unfortunately for most users, those batteries often have a low life. Manufacturers advertise competitive battery lives with their computers, but oftentimes those life estimates are based on how long the computer will stay on if the user performs little to no activity. External laptop batteries are separate pieces of equipment, manufactured by a third party to the computer manufacturer, that offer an extended computer life from an extra source of energy. Before a trip, a laptop user should make sure that the external battery is charged. Then, when the laptop inevitably runs out of life, the external battery will plug into the side and offer hours of more use.

As late as 2006, external laptop batteries were heavy, bulky and pricey, weighing it at two to three pounds and costing up to $500. Now, they are much slimmer and easier to carry, and some cost lower than $100. Since they are now much more affordable and easy to carry, they have become more common for all groups of people using laptops, including students, businessmen, and video editors, who need long battery life for their laptops.

Most companies that make laptops also manufacture external batteries. Dell, HP, and Apple all sell separate laptop batteries compatible with their computers. A laptop user may feel more comfortable purchasing an external battery from the same company that manufactured the computer, because oftentimes warranties exclude usage of products made by other manufacturers. In addition, buying a battery from the same manufacturer assures compatibility, meaning that the user will not go home and find that the battery will not power the laptop.

However, some companies, such as Lenmar, make universal batteries that will plug into any laptop. Some of the advantages of using a generic battery are universality (if it is the only battery around, it will fit any computer), cost (universal batteries can be cheaper, as the buyer is not paying for a brand name), and simplicity of location (some manufacturers only sell their computer accessories through their websites, while generic batteries are sold in local superstores). Electrovaya is one excellent laptop external battery pack manufacturer. Their PowerPacks are nearly universally well-reviewed, and come in different sizes and battery life so as to fit the buyer.

A laptop external battery can be a laptop user’s best friend. Now affordable and portable, they may be worth the investment if you travel a lot and sometimes find yourself without a power outlet.
