Where to Buy Acer R11 Battery?

PyridiusPyridius Member Posts: 2 New User
Hi, I believe there is an issue with my battery because it's stuck at 1% and won't charge. It dies immediately when I take it off the charger so I believe it needs a new battery. Is there an official Acer battery replacement or do I have to go 3rd party. Are there any services with a good reputation?

    Just google "your full R11 model number" and "battery" with the quotes for online vendors/sellers. Most laptop batteries are pretty much the same and fairly inexpensive. If you don't feel comfortable replacing it yourself (not that hard to do), I'd advise just taking to the nearest computer shop and have them install it for you. Jack E/NJ

    Is there a good way to figure out whether the charger or my battery is the issue? I assume it's the battery because it won't charge when I plug the charger in but I've read some people talking about their experience where the charger is the issue instead.

    You need an inexpensive multimeter to check the DC voltage output of the plug barrel between its inner hole & outside contacts. Should read about 19volts DC. Jack E/NJ

    If it runs with the charger in and not when on battery, the charger is doing good...
