My Acer Aspire 5742 is recommending a new battery - what type/size?

SusdoggirlSusdoggirl Posts: 4Member

I'm getting a message that my laptop is recommending a new battery, however, I can't find anything on the settings etc that tells me what type/size battery to buy - without having to open up the unit first.  Can someone please advise what I need to buy and if any special instructions to change out a battery?

    To help you understand, what type and size of the battery is required for your laptop, you can check it by removing the battery from the back side of the laptop.
    - To do this, first of all please make sure you turned off the laptop and the power connections.
    - Now turn the laptop to the back side and pulled the clips to remove battery, which is the only removable part from the outerside.
    - Now you can check the specification of the battery and find it online on the manufacturers website.
    - Your battery is of 4400 mAh Capacity, 6-cell.
    - Ac adapter input is AC 120/230 V (50/60 Hz).
