Dell TD175 Laptop Battery
What exactly is the Dell TD175 battery anyway?
The Dell TD175 is a 9–Cell Lithium Ion (Li–ion) battery for your Dell laptop computer, including the Latitude D620 Series, Dell Latitude 830N, Latitude D631 and many more. Power up your Dell with a fully charged TD175 Lithium Ion battery on your next business trip and increase your productivity.
What is unique about the Dell TD175 Laptop Battery?
This 9-cell Dell TD175 battery with Lithium Ion Technology is designed specifically as an upgrade to the to the standard 4-cell and 6-cell Lithium battery packs. Specifically this battery upgrade will provide 140% more run time than the 4-cell battery and 50% more run time than the 6 cell battery. This extra capacity battery provides longer run time because it has more lithium Ion cells in it. This extra row of cells increases the width of the battery slightly. But Dell designed the battery so that these extra cells are hidden in an ergonomically designed wrist rest. It is a great innovation. The Dell designers really got this right. Extra run time without extra bulk. You can see these additional cells in the picture of the battery. Of course, the silver portion (bottom) of the battery matches your laptop exterior exactly. The extra cells are located in the thin, sleek black casing. This is a one piece fully integrated Dell battery design. When you open up your computer, this higher capacity battery does not interfere with your use of the laptop. Most customers think the extra width (about one and half inches) is a small price to pay for the extra productivity.
What are the technical details of the Dell TD175 Laptop Battery?
The Dell TD175 Notebook Battery dimensions (L x W x T) are 11.39" x 3.65" x 0.78". It comes in the Dell silver grey color with the same 9 contact connector you are accustomed to. This rechargeable Lithium–ion battery delivers an output of 11.1 Volts.
What is the power capacity of the Dell TD175??
The Dell TD175 battery is rated at 85 WHr (Watt Hours) or 7200 mAh (mili-Amp Hours). This extra capacity enables you to work longer while you are away from an electrical outlet. Compare these capacities to your current battery specifications. You can think of these ratings as "the size of your fuel tank". The larger the capacity specification, the more energy (fuel) you will be able to store and use.
What are the advantages of a Lithium ion battery?
Lithium Ion batteries represent the state of the art in battery technology. Li–ion cells are now the most widely used batteries in laptop computers, camcorders, cell phones and most portable electronic devices. Computer manufacturers know that that they can rely on Lithium technology to provide reliable and safe power. Lithium, is one of the lightest metals known and has great electrochemical potential. Lithium Ion's light weight and chemical properties make an ideal combination and give it one of the best energy–to–weight ratios of any battery compound. Unlike the other chemistries, Lithium–ion is a low maintenance battery with a relatively low self–discharge rate (slow loss of charge when not in use). Memory and scheduled cycling are not mandatory to extend the battery's life compared to older technologies.
What is the normal useful life of a Dell TD175 Battery Pack?
Most users get between 2 to 3 years of service from their Dell TD175 Laptop Battery before needing to replace it. Of course, this lifespan depends on individual patterns of usage. Basically, the more you run your laptop on the battery (not on AC Power) the faster you will need to replace it.
But I thought all TD175 batteries were rechargeable. So why do they wear out?
Of course the Dell TD175 battery is in fact a rechargeable battery pack. But unfortunately, we still have not yet invented "the perfect battery," and since there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine, the TD175 will eventually need to be replaced. You see, each time you charge and discharge the Dell Computer TD-175 battery, a chemical reaction occurs inside the battery cells to store or release the electricity you need to power your notebook. Part of that chemical reaction uses up a tiny portion of the Lithium Ion chemistry in your TD175 battery pack. Eventually those chemicals are depleted and once that happens, your battery will not hold a charge. Individuals will begin to notice a gradual drop off in the performance of most laptop batteries after approximately one year of normal usage.
