    I have bought my laptop (HP EliteBook 2540p) for just over a year, witin these few days my laptop is not charging as usual and wouldnt charge up to 100% only 99%. Also when the charger is plugged in sometimes is indicates that it is not charging. I have also used theHP battery health check and it states that my battery is weak. I think that this might have been caused because I just leave the laptop charging even when its full T_T. Does anyone know where I can my new hp laptop batteries for a cheap price yet effecient?

    In addition, I found three shops to buy a laptop battery,

    or use google and search for the replacement part number which I am sure is indicated on a sticker on the battery.

    You could get a replacement battery from HP ($$$).

    You could buy a replacement battery pack for your computer or you can have the individual batteries in the battery pack replaced. Do an internet search for the replacement battery pack.

    I am not sure on how good you are with building batteries but you could just replace the cell in the pack too

    if you want these batteries to last, dont leave them at 100% charged. if your laptop is sitting on a desk most of the time and only on the rare occasion you want to use the battery, then leave it at 40% charge and store in a cool place out of the sun (dont freeze them)

    If you do regually use it and want it to last, only charge to 70%.

    EDIT: dont use a battery that has 40% charge remaining. charge it first.
