    I am seeking to do a RAM upgrade on my Gateway AJ2. What is the maximum amount of RAM that it supports (it has two slots) and what kind of RAM does it take (DDR2, DDR3, DDR4, etc.)? It runs Windows 10 Home SIngle Language x64.

    Not getting a hit on Gateway.com for the model number "AJ2". Is there another model number, maybe on a sticker on the bottom of it?

    On order to know what battery you need, we need the complete model number of your laptop.

    Looking at the Crucial site, it identified your laptop as MD7309u so that's what I used when searching for a battery.

    https://www.amazon.com/Replacement-Notebook-Battery-Gateway-MD7309u/dp/B07642J37L

    https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=16J-000N-04GF7

    If you look at the mAh, amazon has the larger capacity battery. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last. Also amazon currently has FREE shipping - no minimum needed.

    Note: Be sure you check your current battery to be sure the volts match. It says this Voltage: 11.1 Volt (10.8, 14.8, 14.4 Volt compatible) and I'm not clear how it can match all those voltages.

    Keep in mind memory modules work best when matched, so if you plan to use both slots, you want to have the same modules for each slot.
    (oh, and you don't have to buy Crucial, now that you know the specs, but I've found their products to be quite robust and reliable.)
