In theory? Yes. If the producer's site does not sell them you need to google around with the full model name of your laptop (look at a sticker in the bottom side, not the one of Windows 7), and you likely get results like this
, which are third party made batteries, that fit more than one model.
let me stress it check that your laptop's full model name is in the list of the compatible ones of the battery
. Some have similar names, and it's easy to buy a battery that won't fit if you aren't VERY careful about that.
Another piece of advice, do not buy a battery and let it sit unused for years, keep using batteries at least once (full discharge and then full recharge) every 6 months to avoid them going bad. This is to stay on the safe side.
