How much extra runtime does the 60Wh pack provide (Lat 7490/i7-8650U)
I am dealing with a machine that never shipped with a battery (bottom cover is intact, so I believe it may have expanded, or they removed it due to older Dell softcells expanding due to age to avoid UN3841 issues) or cable, so I need to install a battery.
However, I have a choice:
- Match the original 3 cell 42Wh battery (retains 2.5” HD bay)
- Install the 60Wh pack (will lose 2.5” HD bay)
On average, how much of a difference does the extra 18Wh gained by giving up the 2.5” bay? With how cheap NVMe SSDs are these days, it’s looking like a compelling upgrade path to me, especially since I’m starting over on SSD storage, RAM (originally 16GB, stripped down to 4GB) and the 2.5” drive if it was ever present and I did not get the drive caddy with the laptop so I think mine never had it but the previous owner decided to leave the option there by getting the smaller pack.
Questa è una buona domanda?
