My laptop's battery is unfortunately dead after only 3 years :angry: I'd like to replace it myself, but am not sure which battery is the right one... When I google for "laptop battery for Acer Swift  SF514-52T" I get different batteries... Does anyone know the correct battery model name?
Thank you!

    In the Windows Power Shell ( Administrator), run the command : Powercfg /batteryreport
    Then you search the file Battery-Report.html under the C:\windows\system32 directory.

    This file will give your battery model number and the status of your battery.
    Pay attention to Designed Capacity and Fully Charged Capacity.

    If fully charged capacity is more than 30-40%  lower than the designed capacity, then you should replace the battery.

    Oh my goodness, thank you so much! I wish Acer support, whom I had contacted, had been this helpful, instead of sending me their robotic answer! I have the battery model now... And yes, the full charge capacity is less than 1/3 of the design capacity, so I definitely need a new one. Thank you!

    The only difference is usually Acer sourcing the battery from a different vendor. They are interchangeable.

    Can someone recommend a 3rd party brand for this battery model AP16L5J that can be trusted and ordered in the US?

    I ordered an OEM replacement from an Acer-authorized reseller, they sent me AP16L8J model instead, different voltage, and not recognized by laptop. The reseller does not answer my inquiries, Acer tech support refers back to the reseller. I give up and have to turn to another brand. There are many generic knock-offs on Amazon and other places, but which one would provide a quality replacement that works?
