My laptop battery is composed of 6 polymer cells in the constellation: 3 parallel pairs in series.
All cells are Coslight CA653495: 3.7V, 2,4Ah. I'm considering replacing one of the cells, which is puffed. It's puffed hard, not like it's puffed with gas(Hydrogen).
I haven't found the exact cell to buy, due to size constraints. But I've found one that fits. only that it's 2,5Ah.
- How would changing this cell affect the overall performance of the battery?
- Will this unbalance the battery?
- Or will this just use up the new cell faster?
I know I can get a new battery, but I want to understand how cells work together, and learn.
