Hp Compaq

Hewlett-Packard and Compaq merged in 2002, but that hasn’t slowed either of the two companies down in the technological world. Hewlett-Packard originally manufactured voltmeters, oscillators, and similar test and measuring equipment, constantly pushing at innovation and advancing technology. The company eventually entered the world of computers in the 70s, expanding to printers in the 80s.

Compaq, deriving its name from “Compatibility and Quality,” was founded in 1982 by three Texas Instruments employees and became known as one of the first manufacturers of IBM-compatible computers, a precursor to the modern laptop.

The merge only proved to strengthen the two companies, firmly supporting their mutual drive towards quality products that advanced computer technologies. HP and Compaq laptops were originally popular with users in business sectors, but they soon expanded their user base, creating portable machines customized for all consumers, from the active business professional to the amateur music producer. With any Compaq or HP laptop, you will want to replace the batter every so often.

About the Batteries

Both HP and Compaq laptop batteries are known for extended battery life and battery back-up. These days, just about every laptop uses lithium-ion batteries. A modern Compaq laptop battery, for instance, uses lithium-ion cells. HP laptop batteries are also composed of lithium-ion.

Lithium-ion allows for compact, lightweight batteries that still pack plenty of power. Furthermore, these batteries are not subject to the dreaded memory effect, which refers to a flaw in older battery models wherein the battery would lose overall capacity if it was not fully discharged and then fully charged regularly.

The light weight allows for flexibility in design without sacrificing any power, making lithium-ion perfect for any HP or Compaq laptop battery replacement.

Battery Life

On average, lithium-ion batteries can last from 2 to 4 hours on a single charge and have a lifespan of 300-500 charge cycles. Given about 3 years of use, a lithium-ion laptop battery will last only about half an hour on a single charge or may fail to hold a charge at all. Search through our large inventory at Laptop Battery Depot to find the right Compaq or HP laptop battery replacement.

HP’s line of lightweight netbooks benefits greatly from lithium-ion batteries. On a single charge, a netbook battery can last up to 6 hours.
