2 years back, I had to get my laptop's battery changed since it wouldn't last at all without AC power. I got it changed from the Official Lenovo service centre in Gurgaon. Was charged 5K for it.

Now, Battery Care shows that the battery has a designed capacity of 6.29L mWh, and a current capacity of 20k mWh. And anyways, my battery doesn't last long, probably an hour at 75% brightness.

So, my question is: Should I again go for an official replacement from Lenovo, or go for any other company? If so, which one? Also, are there any other companies that make batteries with higher than normal capacity? Have you tried any?

Thanks!

Youtube has videos of opening the battery case and replacing actual batteries that are inside it!! :D

May be there are technicians who do that. Should cost a lot less than replacing whole battery. (personally I never did it)
