I cannot speak for Razor. However, I have rebuilt many old laptops, some were 10 years old. I have always been able to find and purchase replacement batteries from ebay or other online stores. I am not worried about finding a replacement battery when the time comes. To prolong the life of your battery, be sure to run the battery until it is almost fully discharged. You only get so many cycles of charge - discharge. With lithium batteries it isn't a memory development issue. If you want more information, please research on the internet. Watch your laptop. When the length of time it runs between charges significantly decreases, then replace the battery. If you are going to keep the laptop for a significant period of time, you could purchase one or two new batteries now. Do not open them until needed. Store the in a cool, dry place. I hope you found this helpful.
