Is their any device like I charge my AA, AAA or other batteries, I can charge my laptop battery too with another device not connected with the laptop?

If I would have been at your place, I will go for External Laptop Battery Charger; where there is no worry for using any Universal Battery Charger and urge to keep spare battery. If you have such additional Power Bank.

You mean the external charger?

Such chargers do exist but you need to check if for your exact mode one exists.

This one is only for dell laptops. Is there a universal one as I have Lenovo Think Pad. Acer Aspire 5742Z-4629, Dell Latitude. I mean something my whole family can use as every one has different computer.

A universal one would be difficult to come by when there are different pin configurations for the connectors.  They're all made in China these days.

Agree with all the above.  Individual manufacturers may make a separate charging block, but no universal one that covers every battery will exist.

More reasons that this is a hen's tooth ...

  • Every manufacturer specifies a different battery
  • The charging hardware is on the laptop motherboard
  • Intelligent batteries want to talk to the motherboard before starting to charge

Actually a lithium ion lithium polymer balance charger would do the job

So long as your comfortable interfacing it to the battery pack

It is really not that hard to do
