HP HDX Series Laptop Batteries
The HP HDX series of laptops is the HP series that is designed to replace your home desktop computer. The power and drive sizes that they come with are comparable to even some of the best mid-priced desktops on the market. The major difference between the desktops and the HDX series of laptops is that the laptops allow you to easily bring the comforts of home on the road with you. Since these laptops are designed to replace the home desktop computer, itís all the more important to have a proper HP HDX series laptop battery for home and away use.
Although the HP HDX line is one series, it does have a few sub-series. For example, you will see the HDX 16, HDX 18, HDX 9000, HDX 9100, HDX 9200, HDX 9300, HDX 9400, and HDX 9500 seriesí represented in the same line. For the most part, there is one HP HDX series laptop battery except for a few cases. The HP HDX 16 and 18 series have their own specific batteries. It is very important that you pay close attention to which battery you are getting as the HP HDX 16 and 18 laptop batteries look quite similar. The outlier is the HP HDX 9000 to 9500 series laptop batteries. Due to the shape of the batteries, itís unlikely that youíll mix up a 9000 to 9500 series with a 16 or 18 series.
Although all of our batteries are made with Samsung battery cells and Texas Instrument chipsets, there are several manufacturing differences that make it important to differentiate the two types of batteries.
The HP HDX 18 series laptop battery has a significantly higher voltage at 14.8 volts. It draws just enough power for the HDX 18 series, but too much for the 16 series, which has a 10.8 volt system. And, conversely, if you were to purchase a 16 series battery for an 18 series laptop, your laptop might not even be able to start up due to the fact that not enough energy would be put out at once.
Another important distinction is in the amount of cells that each battery contains. Both are made out of high-quality parts that donít easily degrade and will keep your laptop going stronger for longer, the 18 series contains a standard eight cells while the 16 series can have either a six or twelve cell battery. With either battery, youíll get the highest amount of mAh possible with the amount of cells that the battery has. This means that youíll get more power more efficiently and for a significantly longer time.
Both our 16 and 18 series batteries are constructed with care and with top of the line parts that meet the highest standards. They are guaranteed to last for 300 to 500 full recharge cycles and are backed not only by our 30-day satisfaction guarantee, but our two-year comprehensive warranty.
