Will this replacement battery work fine?
About four and a half years ago I bought an ASUS UX32LA-R3019H, and while most things still work fine, the battery life now got to a point where I can barely use it as a portable machine anymore. So I ordered a replacement battery from an unofficial reseller and found a guide on how to open the laptop and change the power source. The process itself was quite easy (just a few screws for the case and battery) and I quickly replaced everything, but then I noticed some differences:
While the new battery has the same part number, it’s rated for 4400mAh instead of 4300mAh. There are some other small differences as well, and I’m starting to get worried that this might be a different part. The laptop also has trouble to wake up from sleep or properly shutdown after upgrading to Windows 10, and I fear that these problems combined with this new battery could result in some damage (or worse, cause an explosion).
Will this replacement battery work fine? Are there certain things I should do before using the laptop again (fully charging the battery, etc.)? Or should I just live with the subpar old battery to be on the safe side?
Any answer would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
