I have a Dell 3537 laptop and it is showing that the battery needs to be replaced. Where can the battery be bought online? How can I be sure that it will be compatible with my laptop?

Just see the power rating of that battery bro! Search any e-commerce portal like flipkart or amazon and buy the one that suffice ur needs. Since it is a duplicate one, I can’t guarantee u life time.

But that will cost you a bit more.
You can also go for other brands that will cost you around half or bit more than that.
If possible visit any nearby computer market.
You can Buy lapcare brand battery pretty reasonable price and good quality.
But don’t forget to get it tested in front of yourself.
Else you can go for original dell battery online or offline.
It’s upto you which you prefer.

Just watch on youtube how to repair laptop battery…
If you have instruments you can repair in less than 500 otherwise do it from local shops.

I had used 2 Lapcare batteries for my first HP laptop and for the price they worked OK. Original battery lasted 4.5 years(degradation had set in around the 3rd year). Replacement from service center costed ~4.2 or 4.5k. Lapcare ones were around 1.2k ( plus availed good discounts from Ebay and Amazon ) and worked well for 18 months and needed to be replaced by the 2.5 year mark. The situation should be better now as back then battery life even with the original one was barely 90 minutes what with power hungry CPU and dGPU. Battery life falling by half to say 1.5 hrs from 3 hrs is still usable compared to half of 90 mins.

Mine original lasted 3.5 years. Then replaced at dell service center and costed 4000 Rs. It has lasted almost three years.

My macbook air 2015 battery is also gone showing needs replacement Please suggest @Ash @LIMBO   

Have you ascertained how much Apple charges for battery replacement?
From what it appears the battery is neither soldered or glued down. So anyone with modest skills could replace it.

@LIMBO
I will not really recommend it.
That’s true that most of time one or two cells are faulty and culprit you can even check that via battery diagnostic apps provided by dell or hp to check individual battery voltage level.
But even if single cell had a issue its not a easy thing for all also you might need replacement cells and many more issues.
You can save them up and use in some DIY stuff better not to play with your laptop.

@rohan8397
Buy a replacement battery from Lapgadgets, i just bought one. The model number for battery should be XCMRD. I could not find a better offer than buying from their website.
This is forthe original one https://lapgadgets.in/products/dell-vostro-3446...
This is for repacement battery https://lapgadgets.in/products/dell-inspiron-15...
Choose the appropriate voltage that would be written on your battery. I bought the replacement battery as it was cheap than the original and also has better backup than the original one.

If it’s quite old and sure that it would have degraded go for replacement.

If you can afford dell original battery then try to procure it from their partner store ( dell don’t have own store but partnered). Should be costing near about 3500 for 6 cell battery or 5000 for 9 cell battery.. I had got one OEM from US but it could not match original..

Lately my IBM battery went bad, have been using lap are one, can’t be compare to real battery but working well.. Also you get 2 year warranty of you register online…

Good luck..

The third-party batteries available on Amazon/FK don’t inspire much confidence. I don’t have any personal experience with Macbooks either.

Not looking for third party batteries as they won’t last long imo.Looking for original batteries where to buy them.

I have not used this site. But looks genuine. You can get reviews of it. Moreover the seller is also on amazon.in and listed products over there too. And you can buy from amazon if battery of your laptop model is listed on amazon.
