Accordingly it says there are either 6-9 cells in a battery? What type of cells? are they regular batteries like Engergizer or Eveready? What is really inside a laptop battery?
IF they are http://www.prolaptopbatteryshop.com/hp-pavili... like Energizer why could not I replace the cells myself?

those cells are soldered together. It's a rip off, just like printer ink. my portable drill on sale 18v, for 80 bucks. Skil the battery lasted less than a year. a new one is 40 bucks. I took the old one apart,(has screws holding the cover on) thecells look like aa batts soldered together. too much for me, but I googled and I guess it can be done?

Sorry I took so long to get back to you. I have been helping a friend move. Sounds like too much for me as well. Thanks for taking the time to try and help me.

Rebuilding supposedly "disposable" batteries is simple.

Being skilled with a soldering iron is helpful though.
I rebuild batteries for My ham radio handi-talkies all the time because new batteries are upwards of $100..
