Cheap Batteries for Laptop Computer, Cell Phone, Digital Camera

By: Artreader
Two important considerations when buying batteries are the cost of the battery and how long it will last, compared to other batteries. It's also important to examine how the battery has to be inserted or used with the device, as well as how long it takes to recharge. Just think of being stuck in a hotel room while traveling on business and you have batteries you can't use or don't understand!

The first rechargeable batteries for laptops were nickel cadmium (NiCd) batteries. They didn't cost much, worked very well and could be used in many different devices. However, as more efficient and lighter batteries have come on the market, many laptop companies have discontinued using NiCd batteries.

Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) Batteries: NiMH was a big improvement concerning power output, reliability, cost, safety and capacity. The "memory effect" was the only issue with NiMH batteries which require them to be fully discharged before recharging to gain maximum output. These batteries can still be found in older model laptops.

The most popular batteries for laptops is now the lithium ion (LiON). LiON batteries don't have the memory and recharging issues of NiMH batteries, and they weigh a lot less than previous types of laptop batteries. On the other hand, they are the most expensive kind of laptop batteries.

Cell phones are not as expensive as they used to be, but you can still end up paying a lot for one. You might need to save for a few months to get the best phone on the market. Or you might need to watch your spending more once you start getting the bills for cell phone fees and extras. You might also need to consider the cost of cell phone batteries.

Most phones come with a basic battery, but you might want to upgrade to a higher capacity. So, as with any purchase, the cell phone battery that costs less may not be the best quality options. Basically, you get what you're paying for. If you find a high-capacity battery at a super-low price, make sure it's not restored rather than brand new. Restored cellular phone batteries are usually made with old components, and don't work as well as new ones. If you're offered a battery at an incredibly cheap price, it's probably restore.

Most people know that a digital camera battery is an essential accessory for their digital camera. Maybe you found out that your digital camera battery consumes power so quickly that you can hardly take 50 pictures before you need to recharge or replace the battery. On the other hand, some people have high-quality digital camera batteries that seem to last forever. Of course, you just need to consider your own needs and uses for your camera before you buy a digital camera battery.

Two kinds of digital camera batteries are available today. The AA battery is very common, as is the rechargeable digital camera battery. Also known as proprietary batteries, these are usually made by the manufacturer.
