The Li-on controller within the battery stops it from allowing a charge, its better to just buy an OEM battery than to try and save a few bucks with an off brand cheapo.Source(s): http://beyondhosting.net

Well best advice is to buy oem battery but if you dont want to go that route you can go to an office supply place and they have an alternative battery supply with lots of adapters that you can use but you will have to haul that around as its not something you can just PUT in your laptop.
