So I bought a used (almost new) MSI laptop two weeks ago. It is a GP62MVR-7RF Leopard Pro.
Everything is looking great on the outside & doing great on the inside. 1 problem, obviously : the battery discharges quite quickly. I want to change it. The battery isn't the most common, but there are a few online. And then I fall on this (German based) website that has 4 (!) different references for my laptop : https://www.sparepartworld.com/msi/gp-serie/gp62/gp62mvr-7rf-serie/
All 4 have 6-cells and 10.8 voltage. Same for mine.
I got in touch with the customer's service : they did not give me much details, among which "all these batteries work for your computer" and "yes it can be shipped to France" (yep that's where I live).
My question was : Is a "compatible" (as said on the website) battery for a laptop is commonly working - and working good - as good and as long ? The price difference between compatible and original is quite a gap and I wanted to know why.
Also, there is no problem to put a 51Wh capacity on a 41Wh battery based laptop, right ?
Thank you very much for helping me !
