When someone buys a notebook one of the first accessories a sales person will try and sell them is a second notebook battery. The first thing that the buyer will notice is that for a little notebook battery it can seem to be extremely expensive and almost not worth the cost to have an extra battery around. But there are alternatives to buying branded batteries and you can save yourself a ton of money by buying batteries that are a lot less expensive than the name branded batteries but do the same exact job that the name branded batteries do.
Imagine if you will that you have just bought a battery operated widget. A widget, for those that do not know, is an imaginary product. It can be anything because it does not exist. So our widget is battery operated and you paid a lot of money for your widget. Your widget does not take regular A or D batteries, it takes a special kind of battery that only works in widgets. There are many models of the widget and they all have their own type of battery. So let us say that you wanted to buy a back up widget battery and you find out that your back widget battery is one hundred dollars. So you buy it. What you did not know is that your widget battery is not made by the company that sold you your widget. It is made by another company that puts the widget making company’s name on the battery and lets the widget makers charge whatever they want for that battery. You also didn’t know that the third party manufacturers of your widget battery have a complete website available for you to input your widget model and find out which generic battery fits your widget. Then you find out that the generic battery made by that third party manufacturer is half the price of the battery you bought from the widget maker. To top it all off you find out that it is the exact same battery minus the widget maker’s logo on it.
If you take out the word widget in the above scenario and input the phrase notebook computer instead you would still have a very true story. All the big name computer companies that sell notebook computers do not make the batteries that they sell with their notebooks. Some other company makes the battery and sells the battery for much less from their own website. The notebook makers are counting on the notion that using a battery without their logo on it is using a wrong battery. When you consider the fact that the third party battery and the battery with the notebook maker’s logo on it are probably same then you come to realize that nothing could be further from the truth.
