    How do I know if a battery will fit into my laptop? It needs a 10.8v. My old battery says for use with tpn-w106 series, and list a few other series as well. I went to the hp site, but that was completely useless. I have to order a generic battery to find a replacement for this. What does the tpn-w106 mean, and will any battery for that series fit mine?

    The battery item number is 699468-001 or the hp part number is 698751-851.

    I saw some cheap batteries for tpn-w106 10.8 volt, but it doesn't list my exact computer as being compatible. My computer is the dv6-7323cl

    It comes with a 65W power adapter and a 6-cell 47WHr 2.2Ah Lithium-ion battery.
    Here are some locations where you can purchase a replacement.

    Those are 11.1volts though. Won't having higher voltage damage the pc?

    You should be okay, but someone else can correct me if I'm wrong.
    I've bought replacement batteries and power adapters from Newegg in the past, and they've worked fine.

    I'm sure Frank is correct and you will be fine with an 11.1 Volt battery, especially after reading his Newegg link.

    TPN-W106 is an HP battery type that works in several of their laptops.

    Personally I would get the cheapest new one I could find on Ebay that's listed as either compatible with your laptop or with the TPN-W106 (but I'm a notorious cheapskate ;) )

    I found one for 13 dollars but it doesn't list my computer specifically. https://www.amazon.com/4400mAh-batt..._11?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=3ZF0ATWT8BARVYGBYXRV

    The picture of the battery at your link does have 'Replace... TPN-W106' written on it (1st pic zoom into bottom left) so I think it will be ok.

    Of course I can't guarantee it will work but for that price I would risk it myself.

    Just make sure you buy a new battery and not a used one that has little life left in it.

    If the laptop is more than a couple of years old, then no batteries for it will be new. They'll be old stock.

    Frank said don't get a 'used' battery, at least that's how I read it.

    There are no "new" batteries for laptops more than a couple of years old. A "used" battery would be as useless as the one the poster has. A "new" battery will be slightly less useless. If it doesn't come directly from the original manufacturer, there's a risk of causing damage to the laptop or worse. Cheap batteries sold for older laptops are not safe.

    The best course of action is to replace the laptop or not use a battery at all until you're ready to replace the laptop.

    I do not agree
    There are most certainly NEW batteries for that HP Envy dv6-7323CL
    There may well not be new GENUINE OEM HP batteries, but then HP never made batteries in the first place
    They were simply branded HP, just as with many other HP parts

    NO better I am sure than the links provided by my good colleague Flavallee but a match according to battery no, as posted by eyegazer

    FITS
    Envy DV6-7323CL



      • TPN-W106
      699468-001

      • Brand New, Not Refurbished, Never Used.

    IMHO you should ensure it is match as above and on the link my colleague sent and do not buy some cheap Chinese import from the likes of ebay
    I do not think this is the correct advice
    Buy from where you have at least some reasonable chance of claim if you are unfortunate enough to get a bad one

    That all said please ensure as far as you can that your charger is good - connect without battery and check voltages in BIOS, just in case the charger is to blame for the battery failure

    Re the one you have listed on Amazon - search the reviews on Bay Valley - bound to be some adverse as always but just recently - did not fit, wrong battery, never arrived etc.
    That said many are good
    I would tend to go for something costing more than the price you have found

    If Macboatmaster knows the batteries are safe, give it a go.

    Further to the above
    http://store.hp.com/wcsstore/hpusstore/Treatment/HP_Laptop_Compatibility_2011-2013.pdf
    see entry
    HP ENVY dv6-7200 - dv6-7399
    and click on battery columns
    Model is MU06 which matches

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/V7-BATTERIE...AQ-/252359965798?_trksid=p2349526.m2548.l4275

    and if you want to spend the money you can buy direct from HP in the USA

    http://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-6-cell-extended-life-battery-mu06-wd548aa-abb

    That said the NEWEGG one linked by my colleague is the same match and of course is in the right place for you to buy whereas my link in post 13 was a UK link
