    HI All,
    I have a Novatech Inspire laptop which I inherited from my girlfriend (she got to buy it for a quid when her firm replaced the company laptops) and it's been fine but now the battery has given up such that I can no longer unplug it and it remain on for even a second. I'd like to source a replacement battery but am unsure which one to get. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
    Thanks, Chris.

    I've never had any joy with aftermarket batteries personally.

    Allbatteries may have a direct replacement

    This is one of 26 pages of batteries and chargers related to laptops LINK

    Be careful as the battery must be compatible with the laptop's internal battery management system.

    possibly crack open the original battery and just replace the actual cells inside?

    Yep, the battery will be OK as far as the laptop will work OK and will cope with a power cut or being unplugged for a bit but don't get any hope of the battery ever getting close to lasting like the original one would have when it was brand new.
