Laptops with no batteries

At Labdoo, we purposely remove the battery to the laptop unless it’s a brand new battery.

There are several reasons for that.
1. The used battery came with the used laptop is typically reaching toward the end of its
life cycle. Very often, the old battery causes problems to power up the laptop.
2. Batteries are one of the most poisoning eWaste. Since many schools may not have the capacity to properly dispose eWaste, removing the laptop battery can help reduce the eWaste.
3. Laptop battery is quite heavy, and many airlines prohibit laptop batteries to be put together with the laptop in the check-in luggage. The volunteer has to manually carry the
battery separately with their carry-on suitcase, which is an extra burden to the traveler.
Not to include old battery saves the CO2 footprint and also ease the traveler’s life in a
great deal.

The Labdoo laptops are most often used in the classroom setting, and most of the classrooms do have power outlets. We decided not to include the batteries on the laptops we sent out unless the battery is in excellent condition.

We hope you found the above explanation useful and we are looking forward to seeing the picture sharing of your students enjoying the laptops.
