Laptop Batteries and Chargers

Maximise your laptops up time

Your laptop powers itself from the mains power supply and charges a battery. These batteries last from 3-5 years, sometimes longer. But the older they get, the quicker the power runs out. A new battery can help to regain the length of uptime.

Battery power banks

Power banks will extend the uptime of your laptop.

Open applications

Open applications on a laptop will take power from the machine, but the energy-saving is minimal if you close them.


automate repeating tasks

Backup has the functionality to run automatically at a predetermined time, and most solutions will send an email with logs.

Order a Battery

The easiest way is to drop the laptop off with the charger at 289 Colombo Street. We will test the battery and charging system. If this is not possible take a photo of the bottom of the battery and send it to us.

Frequently asked questions

Batteries last from 3-5 years, sometimes longer. But the older they get the quicker the power runs out. A new battery can help to regain the length of up time.

Yes, we can. We have access to nearly all batteries for all laptop models. All we need is the laptop and charger so we can test the supply when the new battery is installed.

You will notice that your laptop will run out of power quicker the older the battery gets.  Once you notice this and the battery does not last longer than half an hour, you should look into replacing the battery.

Yes, we can. Drop the machine off in our workshop and we will take care of it from there

All laptop batteries are built to handle a certain number of charge cycles, usually somewhere around 500 full cycles — and sometimes even more. Essentially, a charge cycle equals one full discharge down to 0% and then a recharge back up to 100%. A discharge down to 50% and then back to 100% would equal half a cycle. Over time, each charge cycle decreases a battery’s capacity from its design specifications, meaning that the fewer times you drain it, the longer the battery lasts — all other things being equal.
