Are laptop batteries covered by the one year guarantee?

    I bough a Toshiba L450D-11V last march. I am now having problems with the battery. Will it be covered by the one years guarantee by any chance. Does anyone know where the best place is to buy a replacement if I need to buy one? If I google the part number I get no-where.


    i doubt it pal
    i tryed with a mobile phone before and they said no chance

    Whatever you do, cheap 'compatible' batteries or chargers aren't the way to go - they tend to be ridiculously dangerous.

    Edit -…spx - this would fit your laptop. The only concern is that the description initially states that it's original, then it's not clear if it is or not. All the models listed on that page take the PA3534U-1BRS battery, so if you type that model into Google you should get somewhere.

    It looks like Amazon have the cheapest official one at -…3JA

    About forty quid - no chance on the warranty.

    Normally manufacturer call them as consumables they are usually covered for 6 months......I would buy any compatible ones from ebay..I used the OEM ones previously they are almost the same quality...

    by the way i have a toshiba laptop battery some where around in my house. the model name ends with 1brs. I'll check what's the exact model number and let you know if we can make a deal...

    If you want a dangerous battery ask Sony, they had to replace 100'000's … If you want a dangerous battery ask Sony, they had to replace 100'000's of them because they were catching fire

    The difference being that Sony are forced to recall the battery and pay compensation if you're injured. The bloke on eBay probably isn't going to do that for you.

    think dell give 12 months so worth calling Toshiba

    I had my Dell battery replaced after 11 months no problem.

    Give them a ring or use the online help.
