Dell :: 6 Cell Vs. 9 Cell Battery On The Studio 1555
May 10, 2009
I'm looking to get the Studio 1555 and the only thing I'm not sure on right now is which battery to get.
Is it true that the 9 cell sticks out the bottom a little bit? I would just go for the 9 cell, but I use my current laptop on my lap a lot and I'm worried that if the battery sticks out the bottom it would be uncomfortable since the laptop would be resting on two points rather than the entire bottom
I have an XPS m1330 (T7500, 3 GB RAM, 8400M GS GPU) and had a bad 6-cell battery that wasn't holding charge.
Dell sent me a replacement, but they've sent me a 9-cell which I don't want b/c it's heavy, adds bulk and most importantly, the angle on the laptop REALLY hurts my wrists... but apparently they won't send out 6-cells as replacements anymore, just 9-cells.
I'm wondering if there's anything I can tell them to get them to send me a 6-cell without having to put my 9-cell on ebay or something .....
I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 for about 4 years almost. I have 512MB but am going to buy the 2GB ram from newegg because it is very slow.
I am also formating my laptop as well as my desktop. Most of the time i use my desktop but for my laptop i bought a charger that was CHEAP and i think it messed up my battery life a bit.
I just purchased a new charger from Dell and will throw away the bad charger i have.
My battery life in my 6000 is about 40 minutes. It used to be 2 hours and 30 minutes when i first got it. A few months ago it was actually 1 hour and 20 minutes. My neighbor has a e1505 and his battery lasts like 5 minutes now so all he does is use his charger.
I see on Ebay from reputable sellers that the 6 and 9 cell battery price is pretty close. 6 Cell is about 44 dollars and 9 Cell is about 48 dollars.
i am having a hard time deciding my configuration for a inspiron 13"
i noticed that the Refurbished laptop have a Great price $609, 2.0 intel core 2 duo,4gb,320gb,6cell,Dell 1395 802.11G Wireless Mini Card.
For that price it seems to good to be truth, but i have no experience with refurbished laptop.
What is causing me confusion is, if i should go for a new laptop that has ,2.0ghz(same cpu), 3gb,250gb,intel next gen wireless N, 9 cell battery for $779, all because the $10 for the wireless and 70$ for the battery and it has a 195$ discount already of the original price.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6000. When I purchased the laptop, I chose a 12 cell battery, and it has a sticker on it that states: Replace with 451864-001. My battery went bad, and I purchased a replacement at the HP Parts Store online. I specifically chose a 12 cell replacement, which brought up the same part number, i.e., 451864-001. However, when it came in the mail today, the battery looks like a 6 cell, as it's about 1/3 the size of the old 12 cell, despite my purchase receipt which states that I ordered a 12 cell and the packing slip which also states that HP shipped a 12 cell. The model number of the old battery is HSTNN-DB32, and the model number of the new battery is HSTNN-DB46. Unless they were able to shrink the 12 cell to make it resemble a 6 cell, I'm pretty sure I received a 6 cell, despite the notations in the purchase order and packing slip. This is a long way of asking, is there a tool that I can install that will tell me how many cells are contained in the battery? The battery, itself, does not state how many cells it contains. If it is a 6 cell, as I suspect, HP will be getting it back.
hey everyone im a new Dell E6400 ATG owner and was wandering what would be a better option for my money? I already have a 9-cell battery and was wondering should I go with another 9-cell or get the 12-cell battery for extending my run time?
Just in case anyone wants it, you can get the 9-cell extended battery for the Studio XPS 16 for $59.99 on sale. It's on sale for $79.99 right now and if you apply this additional 25% off coupon it will be only $59.99. Great Deal!
so i know that the 6-cell battery lasts about 1h:50mins just doing light stuff such as web-browsing and word processing(maximum brightness, power saving mode). Anyone have any ideas how long the 9-cell can last while just watching movies??
it hasn't shipped yet, so I can probably still take advantage of the 9 cell free upgrade.
I am concerned though, about the size it adds to the laptop - i don't like the bulge much. But I just read elsewhere that the 9 cell fixes some heat issues with the laptop..is this true? And is the difference significant (heat-wise)? I'm reconsidering now..
My Xps m1530, has 15 days left of warranty, and the battery is saying that the capacity is 70%/poor. Design charge 86.6 Wh last full charge of 60.6 Wh. So i was wondering can i get a replacement on warranty, the laptop and battery are under a year old.
I know there's a topic on the first page asking about the battery, but it's a different question.
I'm planning to buy either Inspiron or Studio, they are pretty similar price and spec wise.
I want to get a 9 cell battery, but from what I heard/read, it sticks out/protrudes from the laptop, making it what I would find quite unpleasant.
I'm planning to get a 14 or 15 inch, if that has any influence on the answer. (i'm assuming it does, since a smaller laptop would have more chance to have the battery stick out, cause it's smaller, and can't contain the battery within the unit)
I recently ordered a Dell Studio XPS 1645. By default it came with the 9 cell battery. I also ordered an additional 6 cell battery for it.
Is it ok to use the 6 cell battery with this laptop? Obviously the battery won't last as long, but will the laptop run ok? I'm asking because my laptop is going to be plugged in on my desk most of the time and the 6 cell keeps the laptop flat.
I'm getting ready to order my XPS1530, waiting for the screen issue to be sorted out, hoping to hear that the Samsung has been dropped in favour of the LG.
On my current laptop, an Inspiron 8600 I have the 2nd modular bay battery to give me extra uptime when on the move. As the 1530 doesn't have this option I've been thinking about the 9 cell battery. Now in all the places I might be when I buy it, the UK, India or Singapore a 9 cell costs an extra 100 pounds (200 US$) over the 6 cell. This seems a lot extra to pay for an unknown quantity of extra uptime, I don't think I should assume I get a straight 50% more.
Can anybody post me a picture with the 9 cell battery installed? I found one picture but it doesn't really show how it looks all together from a distance Is there anyone willing to shoot some pics of it for me ......
Has anyone bought this battery from any aftermarket battery vendor? My XPS M1130 56Whr Lithium Ion 6-cell battery died two days ago. It's $149 + tax + shipping = $169 at Dell. I wanted to see if there are good deals out there from other vendors.
