  • Laptop Battery Intechangeability/Pinout

    Hi. I bought a used tablet PC that came without a battery. I intend to use that as my carpc. I do have an extra laptop battery from a broken laptop. That battery I cannot sell because the laptop was not a very known model.

    My question is: can I use that battery to power the tablet pc I bought? This would be a free battery if I can do it. A tablet PC battery runs around $50.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    if the battery is the same output then you should be able to

    mind you, find schematics for each unit, you dont want power going in the wrong way..

      Where do I get the battery pinout? Is + and - all that I need to hook up?

        uhh, not necessarily, my laptop has like 9 pins, so i wouldnt be so sure that you only need 2 of them

        some might be so that the computer can determine the charge left, or maybe it has seperate charging pins, dunno

        if u dont wanna use trial and error (which could blow something) find the manufacturers site, see if it has anything
