Tesla Motors located in Palo Alto, California has announced on March 28 that over 1500 electric Roadsters in 30 countries have covered 10 million miles. In retrospect, these electric sports cars have saved over 500,000 gallons of fuel from being burned and 5.3 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions.

The Tesla electric cars are remarkable vehicle since their Roadster launched in 2008 as the only highway-capable electric vehicle to accelerate from 0-60 in 3.7 second and a range of 245 miles off of one full charge. The Tesla Roadster consistently outperforms other traditional supercars around the world, while also being credited with leading the automotive industry to a zero-emissions future.

Video Tutorial: Removing Your Netbook Battery and Finding Model and Part Numbers

clock March 8, 2011 21:16 by author Ty

In this video, customers are provided an example of how to remove a battery from their netbook. We also demonstrate the two ways customers can find model numbers, with which they can use to find their corresponding replacement laptop battery.

Transcription of the netbook battery removal video.

Jeremy: "Hey everyone, this is Jeremy from eBatts.com, and today I'll be showing you how to remove a battery from a netbook.

This is our HP Mini, which we'll be using for an example today. (flip laptop over to expose bottom-side)

You'll notice that for this particular netbook, there are two battery locking clips located on either side of the battery. Once you push those forward, as indicated by the little arrows here, the battery will begin to pop out, and you can then pull it out.

There are two ways to find your replacement laptop battery. One way is to locate the battery model number, which is listed on the battery itself. As you can see from this example, this is an "HSTNN-LB0D".

The other way is to use the laptop model number itself, which is listed, sometimes, on the bottom of the laptop. In this example, the product is the "HP Mini 110". (flip)

A more common place to find your laptop model number is on the front. Here it is located on the bottom-right corner of the laptop screen.

This concludes our video tutorial on how to find the various model numbers associated with your netbook. For more video tutorials, check out our website at www.ebatts.com/blog."

clock March 8, 2011 02:20 by author Ty

This video tutorial shows customers how to remove their laptop battery and where to find the “battery lock clips” so that they can remove their laptop battery. Customers are also shown the common areas where they can find the original laptop and battery model numbers, in order to search for their corresponding replacement laptop battery.

Transcription of the laptop battery removal video.

Jeremy: "Hey there guys and gals, this is Jeremy from eBatts.com. Today I'll be showing you how to remove a battery pack from your laptop. What we have here in front of us is a Compaq CQ60 laptop.

You just flip that over - warning: never try that at home, be a little more safe with your laptop.

Over here, we have the "Battery Lock Clip". You can just go ahead and pull that back, your battery will start to pop out, and you can then remove it from the laptop. Now in some cases, your laptop might actually have more than one clip. In that case, you'll have to press both, and your battery will begin to pop out.

Once you remove the battery from the laptop, you can begin to locate the battery model number. For this specific Compaq laptop, you see here in the top-left corner that this is an "EV-06".

A common place to find your laptop model number is on the corners of the laptop. For this specific model, we see that the model number is listed here in the bottom right corner of the screen. For other brands, it can also be listed in these corners and elsewhere.

For this laptop model, it also contains a sticker in the bottom left corner.

This concludes our video tutorial on how to locate battery model numbers, laptop model numbers, and how to remove your battery from your laptop.  For more video tutorials, visit our blog at www.ebatts.com/blog.”
