Default How To Change the Battery in an HP Pavilion

The length of the HP Pavilion’s battery life is dependent on many factors including but not limited to usage, applications that are used on the notebook PC, number of computer peripherals attached, the display’s brightness level, and environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity. If you use your HP Pavilion under normal conditions, then the battery will work perfectly well for about a year. You will then notice that its performance gradually lessens over time, holding less charge when being recharged. But what should you do if your notebook PC’s battery gives up on you? Read on to learn how to change the battery in an HP Pavilion.

1. Run an ‘HP Battery Check’ to know the status of your HP Pavilion battery. ‘HP Battery Check’ is a utility installed on HP notebook PC’s to check its status and battery life. Turn of your notebook and plug it to the AC adapter. Charge it for at least 60 minutes before running the HP Battery Check. Turn it on then go to ‘Start’ and click ‘HP Support Assistant’. From the ‘Troubleshoot’ box select ‘Information’, then select ‘Power, Thermal and Medical’ then click on ‘Battery Check’. If you see ‘Replace’ in the ‘Battery Health’ indicator, then you need to get a new battery.
2. Know the ‘Replacement Battery Part Number’ of your HP Pavilion. There are different models of notebook PC’s and their batteries are not one and the same. To get this information, click ‘Start’ again and select ‘HP Support Assistant’. Click on the ‘Help and Support’ page on the upper-left portion of the window and you will see the product name, product number and serial number of your HP Pavilion.

3. Purchase a new HP Pavilion lithium-ion battery. Go to an authorized HP reseller or order your new HP Pavilion battery via the HP website. Make sure that you order the battery with the correct replacement battery part number.
4. Insert the replacement battery on the battery slot. Once you get your new battery, insert it to the battery slot of the HP Pavilion. Do not dispose the old HP Pavilion battery carelessly. Notebook lithium-ion batteries are made of highly flammable materials. It can be highly dangerous if it is not disposed off properly. Check your local battery retailers, or visit the HP website for available notebook battery recycling programs.

It is important that you read the user manual of your HP Pavilion to get tips on proper battery care practices. You will be able to fully maximize the capacity of your battery if you carefully observe the practices outlined for you by HP.
