If your Acer TravelMate 2000 battery started acting up, would you rather have that replaced or simply buy a new computer? Most people would probably opt for the latter. This is because, if you have tried buying a laptop battery without any know how, then you know how treacherous, time wasting and downright disappointing that can be. I’m saying this because I have been in the same predicament and I would not wish it even on my enemy. That’s why I will tell you how to buy the Acer TravelMate 2000 battery and adapter so that you don’t have to go through the same ordeal.
Buying the battery for Acer TravelMate 2000
Let us start with the battery. First you need to have a diagnostic test to be sure that it is your battery that has the problem. If your battery is charging up okay but once the charger is disconnected it discharges in a blink, then it is time you replaced your battery.
To start off, it is better that you make sure you have the make and precise model of your laptop. It will save you a lot of perusing since different computers have different battery designs. This will also drastically reduce your chances of grabbing the wring battery for your Acer TravelMate 2000.
Once you have an assorted number of Acer batteries, the next thing you want to do is check on the amperage, voltage and the number of cells for your particular battery. For this, you will need to check keenly on the details of your battery since it is written. The amperage and voltage should be as is in the original so that the battery is able to meet the demands of the computer but the cells can differ.
The reason why the cells can differ is because the number of cells determines how long the battery can hold charge. However, it is imperative that you find from your manufacturer if this particular model can support this function. If it can, you’re better off with a battery that has more cells.
Diagnosing the adapter
If your Acer laptop adapter for TravelMate 2000 has a problem, then in more cases than not power will not go to the battery and therefore will not charge. If this is the case, then you have to replace your adapter.
Picking the right one
Just as in the case of the battery, have the make and model with you. Then check on the amperage and the voltage. You can get this information on the damaged adapter. If this checks out, check the pin to make sure it is compatible and if this checks out as well then you’re in the clear to make the purchase. Just make sure that you buy from the manufacturer’s outlet or from a reputable buyer.
