Battery Replacement for Asus ROG Strix G513QY

So I've been running Arch and Windows on my G513 for about two years now, and partly as a consequence of Windows' horrific power management forcing me to plug in my laptop any time I want to use it (certain college classes and steam games) as well as my horrible habits of leaving my laptop plugged in all night, I'm at a point where I need to replace my battery to get me through a day of classes.

Running upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0 yields the following for the battery model and where its at:

native-path:          BAT0
vendor:               AS3GWAF3KC
model:                GA50358
energy-full:         75.017 Wh
energy-full-design:  90.005 Wh
voltage:             15.858 V

I've looked all over the internet for the GA50358 model, and the closest I've come across is a 90 Wh battery with the model number C41N1906 and a voltage rating of 15.4 V. It looks promising since it's from iFixit, but the difference of almost a half volt between the OEM part and the aftermarket one concerns me.

Would this battery work as a replacement, or are there better places to look that someone slightly more knowledgeable could point me towards?



Sorry, I can´t help with that.

It should be fine because the voltage output from the battery will be adjusted by a controller anyway. Of course it would be best to get a battery which uses exactly the same voltage, and also probably better to get a higher voltage than a lower one, but in general a difference of half a volt is not that significant for a laptop battery.
