Replacement battery

HP dv6000 (dv6700) laptop
Microsoft Windows Vista

Hi, everyone.  I bought a replacement battery for my 9-year-old HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. They sent me a 446507-001, but the connector does not line up with the laptop. My battery is a 446506-001. When I try to return it, they tell me that they have sent out lots of these and they work fine. Is there some secret to getting this battery to work when I can't even get it in the slot?

Banhien,

 

Thanks for the quick reply. Both of those batteries are for the same series of computers (dv6000, dv6700, etc). I am at a loss as to how they both can work in the same line of laptops with different physical configurations. Maybe the problem is the age of mine (bought in 2007 as a graduation gift). Still works great, but the battery loses its charge pretty fast. I have found the correct battery, but I am hoping the vendor can either replace it or refund my payment before I buy somewhere else.

Hi,

 

As you can see from the first link, same part number can be used for more than 200 products therefore it can be used cross product lines.
