BU-911: How to Repair a Laptop Battery

Find out the challenges and limitations of repairing “smart” batteries

Most laptop batteries are smart and consist of the “chemical battery” that is managed by the “digital battery.” A common protocol is the System Management Bus, better known as SMBus.

The typical SMBus battery has five or more battery connections consisting of positive and negative battery terminals, thermistor, clock and data. The connections are often unmarked; however, the positive and negative are commonly located at the outer edges of the connector and the inner contacts accommodate the clock and data. (The one-wire system combines clock and data.) For safety reasons, a separate thermistor wire is brought to the outside. Figure 1 illustrates a battery with six connections.

The positive and negative terminals are usually placed on the outside; no norm exists on the arrangement of the other contacts.

Some batteries are equipped with a solid-state switch that is normally in the “off” position and no voltage is present at the battery terminals. Connecting the switch terminal to ground or pulling it up often turns the battery on. If this does not work, the pack may need a code for activation. Battery manufacturers keep these proprietary codes a well-guarded secret to which even service personnel have no access.

Use a voltmeter to locate the positive and negative battery terminals and establish the polarity. If no voltage is present, a solid-state switch may be in the “off” position and needs activating. Connect the voltmeter to the outer terminals, take a 100-Ohm resistor (other values may also work), tie one end to ground and with the other end touch each terminal while observing the voltmeter. Repeat by tying the resistor to a positive voltage potential. If there is no response, then it is possible that the battery is dead or locked by a code. The 100-Ohm resistor is low enough to engage a digital circuit and high enough to protect the battery against a possible electrical short.

Establishing the connection to the battery terminals should now enable charging. If the charge current stops after 30 seconds, an activation code may be required. Some battery manufacturers add an end-of-battery-life switch that turns the battery off when reaching a certain age or cycle count. They argue that customer satisfaction and safety can only be guaranteed by regularly replacing the battery. Mind you, such a policy also rotates inventory.

If at all possible, connect the thermistor during charging and discharging to protect the battery against possible overheating. Use an ohmmeter to locate the internal thermistor. The most common thermistors are 10 Kilo Ohm NTC, which reads 10kΩ at 20C (68F). NTC stands for negative temperature coefficient, meaning that the resistance decreases with rising temperature. In comparison, a positive temperature coefficient (PTC) causes the resistance to increase. Warming the battery with your hand is sufficient to detect a small change in resistor value when looking for the correct terminal on the battery.

After repair, the fuel gauge might not work, is inaccurate or provides wrong information. The battery may need some sort of an initialization/calibration process by fully charging and discharging the pack to reset the flags. A “flag” is a measuring point to mark and record an event. (See BU-603: How to Calibrate a “Smart” Battery).

The circuits of some smart batteries must be kept “alive” during the replacement of the cells. Disconnecting the voltage for only a fraction of a second can erase vital data in the memory. An analogy is open-heart surgery where doctors must keep all organs of the patient alive. The lost data could contain the resistor value of the digitized shunt that is responsible for the coulomb counter and other data.

To assure continued operation when changing the cells, supply a secondary voltage of same voltage level through a 100-Ohm resistor to the circuit before disconnection. Remove the outside supply only after the circuit receives voltage again from the new cells. Furthermore, some fuel gauge chips run wires to each cell. These must be reassembled in the correct sequence beginning with cell one, then two, three and so forth.

You will also need to be aware of compliance issues. Unlike other regulated standards, the SMBus allows variations and this can cause problems. The repaired SMBus battery should be checked for compatibility with the charger. Batteries for critical uses, such as heathcare, are typically replaced and not repaired.

1 -Can the laptop be used without battery but being plugged in?
yes it can. Of course in the event of power failure it will go off on the moment.

2.If battery is charged fully but stilled being plugged in, what is the risk?
  Almost none. Li-ion batteries permanently lose capacity. The rate of losing capacity is proporcional to temperature. IF they are exposed to hot temperatures they will have shorter lifes. So, best way to prolong battery life is to charge it to full capacity and store it in the fridge when not needed. Its not very practical dough.

3.In certain circumstances of updating, Windows needs th laptop to be plugged in,why is it necessary/
This happens whenever the time expected to complete the operation is very long. So, if the computer was being run on battery it would be probable it will discharge before the task was done.

I was inquiring about the C7000 series in order to wake up a couple Dell laptop batteries that have resisted taking any charge after being away from the laptop for an extended period of time.

I was given the following as part of the response:

“Testing Dell Laptop batteries, can however, be a challenge as in many cases they have a protection circuit in the batteries which doesn’t allow it to “handshake” or communicate with the analyzer to get the charge going.”

1. Is there any reliable way to get around the handshake issue?

2. How do I know which Dell laptop batteries have that problem?

3. I understand it was only the older laptop batteries and not the newer
ones that are affected. Is that correct?

Should I connect one end of the resistor to the ‘Ground’ of the Dell circuit mentioned on this website, while keeping the voltmeter connected to the circuit as well ?

Would it be possible to connect the A/C power to the battery port directly, since this is the only way to feed power into the Motherboard, and if so, how. I shall give a few ideas I have come up with, any thoughts are welcome:

1. Removing the cells in the battery and connecting the A/C terminals directly to the battery terminals, hence feeding A/C through there.

2. Leaving the battery intact, but insulating off the negative and positive terminals of the battery, then feeding A/C through these terminals onto the motherboard, to “trick” it into thinking a working battery is connected.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi, is it possible to simply bypass a solid state switch that requires an activation code?
What if one solders the positive terminal of the battery pack directly to the positive pin of the connector?
In my case I have a 3 cell battery pack from a lenovo netbook, ideapad s10e. It has a 7pin connector. The first pin is the positive and the last (the 7th) is the negative (ground). The individual cells are all new and fully charged (4,2v each). Being connected in series the voltage of the pack is 12.6v. However, the solid state switch cuts off current to the positive pin. What if I connect it directly to the red wire from the battery?
Thank you for your time!

My HP laptop G series battery has hardly ever been used. My sister has the same laptop and she uses hers all the time, has even had it longer than mine. She keeps her battery charging all the time. She has no issues.

Just out of the blue, my battery won’t hold a charge for very long. I read online that you can “jump start” a battery with a USB cable with the positive and negative wires stripped. Basically, you zap the battery. The online description talks about locating the positive and negative connectors but doesn’t make mention of these laptop batteries like in the pic above.

Is there a way to jump start the battery or to do a reconditioning procedure (whatever that may be) to get the battery to hold it’s charge? Right now, it only lasts for about 30 minutes when in the past it lasted for several hours or more.

The problem currently I have is the following.

When the laptop is powered on through mains adapter, charging indicator red light of the laptop comes up for few seconds and the light goes off.  Laptop boots normally. On checking the battery status it shows 0% charge.

I had taken out and opened the battery. One pair of cells were dead and I replaced those cells. Discharged all ceels manually. Then charged the cells manually upto 3.7 volts. Individual Cell voltages were from 3.69 to 3.71 volts.

Put the battery again into laptop but the problem remains. Battery showing 0% charge but it didn’t charge. I have checked the voltages at pins. Several pins show voltages ranging from 2.5 to 14 volts. However, non of the pin takes any load indicating that the battery is not allowing power to flow out i.e. the output current seems to be limited by the electronic circuit attached to the battery.

any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Notebook: Dell Isnpirion mini 12

I bought a replacement battery for this notebook because the original Dell (design capacity 48 Wh) has lost its capacity in the years.

New battery:
Typ: NDE076
Capacity: 58 Wh or similar (not 48 Wh!!! - this was the original Dell)

This replacement battery has been replaced in warranty 3 times in 1,5 years!!! Because somehow after time its controller circuit gave up. That means no charging, no energy, no charge report anymore. After the 3rd replacement i deciced to open it and saw the controller (Atmel mega406). The cells were charged, somehow the controller went in a state (probably blocked) that i had to reset it. It has a RESET pin smile That helped and i had to full charge and full discharge to teach the controller again. I think i will have to repeat it if the problem occurs again!
One must know there is a firmware in this controller and this “blocked state” issue can occur due to a firmware/hardware bug.

If you have a warranty don’t try this, just claim for a replacement.

I had to dissipate the battery of my system sometimes ago.  Since then, it has not been charging.  When plugged in power, it will say charging, but it won’t increase, and whenever I remove the power cable, it will power off immediately.  Today, a friend assisted me in boosting the battery, by removing the inbuilt battery, and charging it through its positive and negative wires.  When we inserted it into the computer, and attempted to power it on without the adapter, it did not power on. When we inserted the power cable, the system came on as usual, but now it had charged to 58%. Yet it won’t power on without the power plugged into electricity, and it will power off immediately the electricity is disconnected.

What I know is that;
The battery cell can be charged directly, but not with the adapter.
The system is only working on external power not on battery.

Please what can I do to rectify this problem?

I checked all connections and all it’s fine. The plus and minus terminals of the battery have zero volts but the cells have 11.5 volts. I use the resistor to activate the solid-state switch but with no luck. I have to mention that I replaced the cells without keeping “alive” the circuit board.
Why is this happening? Is there any way to bypass the board?

6. What do the ‘‘K’’ and ‘‘R2112”’ and ‘P23B’’ etched on the cells’ plastic covers mean?
7. How can one identify and differentiate clearly between the various types of these Li-Ion batteries?

Thanks to all your comments and advice.

My new laptop was normally used only for several days and then not used for few months and now it’s li-ion battery is totally discharged. I have plugged power source even for 12 hours, but unfortunately it is still 0 % :-(.
My battery data:
14,88V 41Wh 2800 mAh

Is there any way to bring it back to life? Is it possible to self discharge smart battery “to death”?

Thanks for your help

I mistakenly, connected a reversed polarity charger(19 V) to my ASUS notebook, it shut down instantly. I removed the wrong charger and connected the correct one and started the notebook, it started normal and run for 1 hour, showing 0% charge,with charging message. After 1 hour it shut-off. I started again, it started for 5 minutes then shuts off. I removed the battery, plugged the charger, it does not run at all. But with battery installed it runs for few minutes then off again. I tried many times, same thing.
I think the notebook only runs on battery now as the 1 hour work was due to a remaining charge in the battery.
I plugged the charger for hours, orange LED indicator is on, but when starts for few minutes it shows [0% charge-charging]
Wondering what is the expected damage and how can I charge the battery without installing to the notebook ?

Have a HP DV7 Notebook with a 9C battery. 3 cells died over night. from running normily to zero. Disassembled battery to find 3 cells died. zero Volts. Replace the 3. Now have ~12.6V. Will not charge in windows, Shows 80%. ran Bios battery test. Battery status : Replace (42). was wondering if anyone out there has a way to reload the firmware in the battery charging pcb or edit that data?

Many thanks

To Nadahm
How to recharge the battery?
The answer depends on many factors. Mostly on the tools (hardware = material that you have) and intellectual tools, knowledge) note that my method is not necessarily economical!
How I do, I have a milling machine; I bore a hole at each end of the battery at the center of the cells location
By doing this, it enables me to have access to the cells within the battery and measure the voltage
Usually it is not sufficient; I bore some holes on the top of the casing (opposite side that is externally exposed on the laptop)
That gives me access to each cell. From there I poke wires and recharge each cell individually
I charge at 4.0V and 0.5A max rating for each cell. The reason is the cells are not dead equally, and because they are connected in series, the weak ones would receive too high of a charge rate
This could result in fire or explosion
Google, e cigarette on fire if you want to see what is involved
After the charge and equalize operation, the battery assembly is placed in the computer
The next step is, does-it communicate?
I use a software batterycare to find out
If the battery does not communicate, its useless to peruse = scrap
If it communicates, one would see the state of charge…and so on
However, sometimes (often) there are damaged components on the battery management board
Again I cut the casing, without destroying-it!
Very often it is the protection device (a fuse system) that is blown, I repair-it as oppose to replacing the part
As you can see this is not economical!

My Asus eeepc 1015cx battery starts charging and stops charging and again the incident repeats frequently when connected to laptop adapter. Charging indicator blinks frequently winthin a milisecond. I have replaced both the battery and the adaptor. But problem did not solve.
1. Is it problem of the battery or the motherboard?
2. Is it safe to charge the battery bypassing the onboard charging circuit with another charging circuit with voltage regulator IC like LM 317 ?

Hey, I’m having problems too with my HP pavilion 15. It uses the same V104 Battery, that is videly used in hp products, how ever only place that offocoally solds this battery is hp india… so I don’t have any other way to get new, except knock of battery from ebay… I wish that hp would give us the board layout of the bms, the activation codes, for clearing the errors. I guess that it would be much safer to re-cell the battery with same cells, than buy knock of from ebay…

currently the battery has no voltage present on contacts, I have tried to jumpstart, batteryenable, but still nothing. Computer regornices the battery, but everytime I remove the battery the percent value is different. HP battery test software says that the cell voltages are like 3.8, 3.8, 2.2 and 4.0 and really they all are 3.8…

But the battery is not able to start the laptop without external power supply plugged in. When unplugged the external power supply, the machine turned off instantly. Voltmeter cannot detect any voltatge output from the battery connectors. “Powercfg -energy” report shows no problem about the battery. Please help.

Some batteries are equipped with a solid-state switch that is normally in the “off” position and no voltage is present at the battery terminals. Connecting the switch terminal to ground or pulling it up often turns the battery on. To know more visit - https://www.pcsupportnumber.co.uk/hp-support-uk/

My laptop ASUS X540S, three month ago his battery had a cell from three damaged and I continued to use it like that. The battery has 3 cells, the middle one had 0V, the two others had 3.88V and I replaced the damaged with a new one. Unfortunately now the battery seems disconnected from the charger. I see 13% available (plugged in, charging), but battery do not charge.
When disconnected, the 3-d terminal shows 3,2V, the 8 others 0V. When charger is connected : terminals 1 and 2 have 0,06V, 3 have 3,2V, 4 0V, 5 and 6 have 3,25V, terminals 7,8 and 9 have 0V. When system started, nothing change.
My question, which terminal is the switch one ? If I connect to ground through 100 ohms any terminal, do I risk to damage the computer ? What should I do ?
