Batteries are consumables, which means they are expected to require periodic replacement during the lifetime of a computer. For information about guarantee conditions for your battery, please consult the Regulations, Guarantee, EULA and Service Support booklet.
If your battery is worn, you can purchase a new battery for your VAIO at the Sonystyle store, or a local dealer locator.
In case batteries for your VAIO model are not available anymore in retail, you may still be able to purchase a battery as service part. Contact our services to check for prices and availability.

VAIO notebooks may consume a small amount of energy from the battery even when completely switched off. This behaviour is by design and cannot be changed.
Note: the boot process is quite power-intensive and may consume a considerable amount of battery charge.
VAIO shows an error message stating that your battery is not an original Sony battery
WARNING: Third party batteries may not be designed according to the security guidelines, and may therefore be more susceptible to overheating.
If you have recently purchased a new battery for your VAIO, and this message shows up, we recommend to return it to your dealer.
In rare conditions, this message may appear with an original Sony battery.
