    Well I've been looking tonight with hubby for a spare battery for my 15" HP Pavillion laptop because it's 4yrs old now and it's not being made no more..it's hard to find one and are the copies any good :setc_039:...It's a 15-G094SA ...battery type 14.8v / 41WH Li-ion with 2580mah.

    If anyone knows of a good link to one, then send it this way as it's doing my nut in :smt101 :smt100

    I can't find a genuine one anywhere Gail only a generic one on e bay but I don't know how good it would be. Maybe if you get in touch with customer services at Hewlett Packard they could help you out.:shrug:

    Gail,

    I ran the number and a replacement LCD screen showed up as a result.

    HP 15-G094SA New Replacement LCD Screen for Laptop LED HD Glossy

    Is there another number, preferably of the battery itself?

    No neither could we but I shall be in touch later with Hp as I've just come back from an h'pice appointment that went well for a change :like: and I can't thank you enough for taking the time to look :)
    While I was in bed last night hubby came across a site where everything was identical but instead of 2580mah it was 2600 and he also took the battery off my laptop to measure it and everything came in identical so he's ordered one to see what it's like as your able to return them if they're unsuitable.

    Hi Jerry, thank you also for looking :like:...here's the other number sorry - Hp 740715-001

    Hello @eileen I went on the help line and to get help and you have to go through a 3 stage process first.

    1. Information you want to know
    2. Name and email address
    3. The process on how quick you want it...now here's the best bit (Normal waiting time $45 or urgent $65) :eek:

    I'll see what that's like hubby as ordered I was totally shocked.

    As I don't post vendors or vendor info, PM me and I will give you the source I located that says it's a genuine HP part.
