About batteries (for digital hinote vp)

I have an old flat NiMH battery. Can I get a Lithium Ion battery and just whack it in my laptop ? Are there standards here ? Do they still sell NiMH batteries ? My laptop is a Digital Hinote VP and the battery, when fully charged, gives me about 20mins power.

you might want to try one of those stores that specialize in batteries.

Braindrop, that bleedingly obvious comment of yours burned me up. I was truly lamed out by that.

If you really want to boost your post count why not dredge through the hardware forum and suggest that people "might want to talk with the component's manufacturer", or "a hardware vendor, perhaps they can shed some light on things" ?

I donated $0 dollars and rated you as useless.
