Windows 7: Low energy Battery notification

Low energy Battery notification

today I reached 7%(13 mins) remaining of energy in my battery, and I got a notification saying that I need to: plug my computer OR change/replace the battery(?)
I didn't understand what "change/replace the battery" meant so I didn't do anything, I also couldn't plug my charger/adapter to a wall socket so it automatically hibernated...

I really like the idea of changing the battery but I don't understand what they mean by "changing it/"

please explanation.

Replace, as in, put in another battery. Many people carry a spare.

Well, yeah but what does spare mean? my battery is inside the laptop, do you mean an external battery that can be plugged into laptop?

The battery slides/clips out of the bottom of the laptop. If the have a 2nd one, you can interchange them. Here is an image for a battery for your laptop.
