Helly, everyone!

I have this HP laptop for almost 3 years now, and my battery cells are getting fat. It has 4 of them, and they're thicc. What should I do, or where can I get a replacement from? Here's a pic. I removed it's back, to clean it, because the warranty expired too. I'm afraid it might explode or something crazy could happen.fatbattery.jpg

Hello @Lepi25 


Its your battery dying. Those types of batteries are notorious for swelling up once they reach towards their end of life.

My opinion, you would do best to remove it before it "possibly" busts open and leaks acid.

Your only option for replacement is a 3rd party battery you can find online in your area.

But you don't have to use one. You can also run the laptop with the power cord only.


The part number for the battery is 905277-855 4 cell.

Here is your manual...
