Hi Guys.

New user...but been visiting as a guest on these forums for a little while.

Just wondering about Laptop Batteries.

I have a HP DV9510TX ( I think that's the model number) which is a 17inch screen model.
An electrical contractor was doing some work outside my house, and managed to get some wires mixed up...power surged.
Laptop was plugged in....
I turned the laptop on...and it was working I thought.
next day...the battery was flat, so I though I'd plug it to run from the transformer.........transformer dead.
Took it to the HP repair place....
turns out the battery is fried....motherboard etc electrically worries, Electrical Contractor paying for it.
Now, to get the data from the laptop....
Repairer is wanting $150 to get data from laptop (HD is physically fine, no damage) so I want to do this myself.
The laptop works fine under battery power...and I only need less than a couple of hours to get data from it....

Does someone have a suitable charged up HP laptop battery that I can used for a few hours?
I'm in Christchurch, work in central city.....

happy to pay a "rental fee" if you want....
PM me here if you can help out.

I'm not a hardware technician but would it be safer and easier to just rip out the hdd and transfer the content? It will require an external case I guess...

I had used the laptop running on the battery...before it discharged....and there were no issues.
I had thought that, but I need to keep the laptop pretty much un-damaged, as it'll be an insurance claim for the Electrical company.
