How to Identify Laptop Battery Part Number or Notebook Model Number

How to Identify Laptop Battery Part Number or Notebook Model Number 

To find the replacement battery/ laptop charger / power adapter you need for your laptop, you will need to search for either your computer’s model number or the part number of the specific battery / laptop charger / power adapter. This article will help you in identifying both.

Because there are so many varieties of laptops and nearly as many batteries /chargers for them, makers of replacement batteries / chargers (such as Inland) do not always have every single battery part number or laptop model number in their compatibility database. Some batteries even have multiple part numbers! Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to try a few searches before finding your compatible replacement.

Below are individual guides for the different laptop manufacturers:

Apple

Laptop Model Number

Searching by laptop model with Apple is easy. Apple will change the model of the battery without changing the model of the unit. To guarantee you find the correct battery, you will need the battery model number from the battery itself. Alternatively, our service centers are always available to help and can identify exactly what you need given your unit’s serial number.

Apple model numbers can be found in small text on the bottom of the laptop. They are formatted as “A####”.

HP batteries always have a model type, typically found in a box near the top of the battery label. They are generally 4 characters long, with two letters followed by two numbers (e.g. MU06). Internal batteries are often 6 characters long, adding ‘XL’ at the end (e.g. CM03XL). This is the best number to use in your search. There are also part numbers and spare numbers, always with 6 digits-hyphen-3 digits. Both are good search terms. Finally, there are often many compatibilities listed. You should not need to worry about these, but they are there in case you would like to cross-reference.
