    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil IV battery upgrade

    Finally got the offical message back in my support account telling me the GK5 at the start of the model number means it is compatible as that is the same prefix as the laptop model number.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil IV battery upgrade

    I contacted PCS and without wanting to confirm it was OK I did get the sense it should be fine. I read many more posts on the NBR thread and finally installed it. It works fine. Tomorrow I will test the runtime.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil IV battery upgrade

    I assume the 4 and the 3 on the model number refer to the number of cells. On the website it does say it is a replacement for the 3S1P. I guess the question would be does the motherboard have the appropriate voltage regulator. I also notice that the battery connector has many wires, are...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil IV battery upgrade

    I bought a new higher capacty battery but the voltage on the battery is 15.2V and on the existing battery is 11.4V. Is this the right battery? As you can see the old battery became puffy. No idea how that happened. https://www.replacement-batteries.co.uk/getac-laptop-battery/3687.html

    Hi https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/defianceVII-15/ Does anyone know what chassis this laptop is? I just checked it out on the PCS website and for £1,106.00 inc. VAT it seems reallly cheap for a RTX2060 laptop and the battery capacity is really impressive. AM I missing something? Is...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil II M.2 SSD Upgrade

    As soon as I'd posted I went back to my open laptop and it's written at the end of each slot. At first I just inserted the WD Blue in the empty slot, rebooted and didn't see it. Now I've switched them it's working fine. I may go for the higer capacity battery once I've removed the 2.5" disk...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil II M.2 SSD Upgrade

    I bought a WD Blue m.2 SATA SSD as an upgrade to my Seagate FireCuda 2.5" SSHD. I already have a Samsung 970 EVO nVME drive installed in one of the m.2 slots, this is the drive I ordered the laptop with. Which of the m.2 slots is the SATA slot? Is this configured in the UEFI? I only plan to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil ii not recognized by TV

    I tried another same series Samsung TV and the same result. I tried another laptop and as soon as I plugged it into the TV the laptop screen was duplicated on the TV. Tomorrow I will have a chance to try and different TV and also a monitor to check if maybe the HDMI port is now faulty.

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil ii - benchmarks

    On the NBR thread people are achieving higher numbers with either alternative BIOSes or modifying with Throttlestop and other software. I am really interested in what the standard PCS version of the laptop should be. I just observed my Cinebench CPU score drop to 880 just by installing an...
