How interchangeable are laptop batteries
I've bought a couple of the 4400mah batteries to replace the 168 plus 11P, 3149C, and 75UYF batteries I've had in my CPiA366XT and three C600's. I frequently swap these batteries around between laptops, and have not noticed any problems in the 6-9 months I've been using them.
The bios update CD that came with these was merely a Debt Collection of the latest Dell updates for the various machines this battery fit. These were the exact same flash bios updates available on the Dell site. IOW, if you have the latest bios version already, you don't need the CD. FTR, I didn't use the CD on any of my 4 laptops.
Computer arrived today WOW
Glad he liked it. Actually they are 2400's. It was for my Miracle League and is tax exempt, hence the phone order. All we will do is Office...
If you look at the update history for a given bios, it's common to see revisions pertaining to battery charging, so my take on this is that the battery supplier just wants to urge buyers to be using a sufficiently up-to-date bios version. For example, the latest CPiA bios is A15, but A13 was the last to change anything related to battery, so I think that means A13 is okay but if you're using A12 or earlier you'd want to update.
