I'm very happy with this battery. My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ60. I'm able to use my computer now, using just the battery, for at least four hours and without changing the power settings to prolong battery use. My old battery used to give me only 1 1/2 hours of work time, if I was lucky, when I selected battery saving options (like dimming the screen, PC going to sleep sooner.) After a year and a half of using this laptop, the original battery stopped holding a charge at all. During startup I got a message saying the battery would not charge, suggested I get a new one, and Windows wouldn't load until I clicked OK. I ran an HP battery utility and improved the battery time to 15 minutes and got rid of the red X over the battery indicator. The new replacement battery has "extended" capacity, so it's physically larger than the battery that came with my laptop. It still fits in the battery slot, it's just taller (not wider.) The new battery elevates my computer in the back and there are two little pads on the bottom of it. This lifts the back of my laptop to a good angle for typing and must improve air flow for the fan. Before, the fan just blew right onto the table surface because I don't use a cooler.

Just as others have said, this battery is a longer life model and is larger than the standard model. It creates a "bump" along the back on the bottom of the laptop but I like it because it raises the back about 1/2 inch and I think this helps with cooling since air can get underneath the machine. Plus the laptop is slightly slanting towards you just like many desktop keyboards that have the little flip down tabs to raise the back of the keyboard a little bit. It's a bit heavier than the OEM but I don't find that to be any problem.

It does it's job and lasts about 6-7 hours in my work laptop (Compaq Presario CQ60) that is used in an auto shop where temperatures frequently rise above 100°F, causing the fan to run almost constantly. In the basement at my house, which is generally around 65-70°F, the battery has lasted as long as 9 hours. Of course, this is all with the screen brightness turned all the way down.

For the price, it's a great product. Not to mention, the battery places the laptop at an angle so it gets better airflow.

My only complaint is that the rubber "feet" fell off within the first week but, with how hot this laptop gets on a regular basis and how much it's moved around, that's just what happens.

I recieved this item quickly, and unlike many others had written, the item snapped into place for me with no problem on my CQ40 laptop.
I have been using it and it seems I have much more power available for much more time. It also lifts the back of the computer to allow more air flow. I am very happy with this battery, and would purchase from this dealer again with no hesitation. If your barrery is getting weak, this is the way to go.

Seems to hold a charge as promised. I've been using it for a few weeks now. Because it sticks out (it's two batteries put together) and it weighs a lot more, it does tend to fall out. I can live with it because I use a tray while the computer is in my lap and of course while its on a table it is not a problem. If you move the laptop from lap to table, to tray, and to a bag....get ready for the battery to fall off. Like I said, not a big deal, unless your computer is on.

This battery barely lasted a little over 4months! The battery will only hold a charge for 20 minutes without being plugged in to the wall. This is UNACCEPTABLE to be able to use this for my classes! Since I can't return it it is going to end up in the trash with having wasted $30 for a worthless POS! Won't be buying from this seller ever again.

Replacement battery. Original battery died. This replacement almost tripled the original battery's runtime. Price and delivery expectations were met. Note: Extended battery bumps out slightly from laptop case. Which is not a bad thing as it allows better air circulation under laptop.

UPDATE - 12/3/13
Revised rating down to 1 star. Battery dead after less than 4 months - 30 day return policy. Started out great then after 2 months would only take partial charge until it wouldn't charge at all. Got to wonder if this is old NI-CAD battery tech from the way it acted. Battery life cycle should be longer than 4 months! Replaced with battery from different vendor with written 18 month warranty. Read the replacement/return policies.

I had to return it. It held a charge for less than an hour even after multiple attempts to calibrate.

July 2013 -
I bought this battery to replace the original battery that couldn't be used without the computer being plugged in. this battery charged right up and works for hours without needing to be charged. I have watched two full movies without it plugged in and I still had half of the battery life left. good find for sure.

updated December 18th -
I have had the battery now for five months and it says that it is at 100% charge, but when the plug s taken out, it falls to 40%. I think I will be looking to buy a new battery for myself now that this one is ca-put.

I ordered this double capacity battery in hopes of extending my laptop use between charges. Unfortunately, the battery would not hold a charge and failed my laptop's battery check routine. I informed the seller who sent out a replacement battery. Again, the replacement battery wouldn't hold a charge and failed the battery test. When I informed the seller of the failed batteries, I asked if they were capable of sending me a reliable battery. They said they were not as they ultimately found a high rate of failure in the batteries from their supplier/vendor. I was given a postage paid return label. So I returned the defective batteries and received a full refund with their apologies. I'm glad they willingly gave me a full refund, but preferred to receive a viable battery - which I didn't receive.
