Default Buying a Used Laptop Battery

sponsored links

 
As my laptop battery doesn't work anymore, I need to buy a new one and seeing as i would have to pay around 135 for a brand new one, im thinking about buying one from Ebay, which has been used before.

So i wanted to know, if batteries eventually die out like my one did, if i buy a second hand one, does this mean that it might die say the week after i use it. Is there a possibilty ??

Also does anyone know if there is anyway to prevent a battery from dying out or anything ??

Thanks
Kev

Yes it might die in a very short time & no there is no way to prevent it.
You can prolong a batteries life by not leaving it constantly on charge & letting it get flat before you recharge it.
