Battery for HP 500

Hi

Can someone tell me if this external battery will fit a HP 500 laptop.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Travel-Battery-battery-Lithium/dp/B0007SQH98/ref=sr_1_1/026-6757597-09332...

I have found it very hard to find info about which batteries will fit.

If this is not the correct forum for such a question then please could someone direct me to the correct forum.

Many thanks

Re: Battery for HP 500

hi,

Im not sure about that one as its not listed for your model under the accessories here, or on partsurfer website for your model. Also on partsurfer if you search for that one PB993A, then your laptop isnt listed and in the last link it shows it not for the 510 srs

primary battery p/n RW557AA 8cell

or spare part number 440704-001 for the 4cell standard battery

Re: Battery for HP 500

Hi

Thanks for the info - it doesn't look like those big (4 hour) batteries will fit.

I am thinking of buying an external battery like this one.

http://www.laptopshop.co.uk/SPS-slim60-laptop_battery-6063-1-b9.htm

It looks like it will fit, but can you confirm?

PS I am happy to give points, how do I do that?

Re: Battery for HP 500

hi,

im not sure about that as never seen it before. You would be better off checking with laptopshop and ask them. That way if it doesnt you have come back to return it.

that said, im pretty sure that the battery life of the RW557A would last alot longer than the standard battery.

As its got 8 cells and is 63wh as opposed to 4 cells and 32wh for the standard battery.

says twice as long as standard here
