First of all, the instructions that come with the battery say to charge it before using. I suggest you follow the instructions, even if it will power your computer immediately. Given that this battery is 9-cell, and my original equipment battery is 6-cell, I expected to get about 50 percent more time out of this one, and, so far, I have. I have run it down to about 25% of full life, and recharged it twice with perfect performance. If I have trouble down the road, I'll come back and amend this review. If you don't see an amendment here, assume it is still going strong. My original review date is 29 May 2012.

The battery is close to 50 percent heavier than the OEM battery. Also, it extends downward so that it is not flush with the bottom of the computer. This causes it to tilt the computer sightly forward toward the user. This is a good thing from the standpoint of ventilation. I know people who prop up the backs of their computers just to achieve this effect. It is a bad thing if you need it to be flat on both sides to slip in to a briefcase or whatever.

The seller actually contacted me to makes sure I was satisfied. That, also, is reassuring.

I'm comfortable enough with this battery that I'm about to take it on a trans-atlantic flight. This purchase has turned out very well for me. I hope you have a similar experience!
Best,
Tim

P.S. I've returned from my two-week trip, where I made regular use of the battery. Zero problems.

YAY! It's here!

I was so excited when the package arrived.

It was well packaged, no signs of damage. I tossed it in my bag to take to work the next day, where my computer lay dormant.

I arrive, after I get some free time I open the package, the battery is extended, it has the extra lift that I wanted to keep my battery cool, this is precisely what I've been needing for over a year now. Why did I take so long to get it?

While pulling it out of the bag. It had a clicking sound. Batteries.. shouldn't click? So.. I feel around, there's a soft spot in the middle, under the sticker. Batteries.. shouldn't have soft spots? Maybe it's by design.. I'll plug it in..

I charge it for 4 hours. Orange light turns blue, charging is complete. Great! I press the power button... I press it again... and again. Why won't it turn on?

I plug in the power cord, it turns on, I remove the power cord. It's still running. Okay. Great! Then it shuts off while booting. I plug in the cord, load into os, remove the power cord. Great! It says I have five hours! I run a game, to test the battery, it shuts off. It won't turn back on without the power cord.

I loved this battery and wanted it to work. Maybe mine is just defective? I'm going to ask for a new one, due to the positive reviews, because I really want another one. I'll adjust the review accordingly.

Been using the 9 cell for a couple of weeks with no issues. Battery life is as claimed and it holds a charge well when not installed. I love the boost it gives to the laptop, elevating the rear end when I set the pc on the table - which means that I've got good airflow without having to use a special pad or other cooling device. Even with the boost, the laptop won't cool well on ... er ... a lap, but it's a lot better than sitting flat and depending on those little feet. I'm using my original 6 cell battery as a spare, which gives me a lot more margin for error. Now, if I can only find an "out of PC" charger... (caveat: I don't leave the battery on perpetual charge, nor to I let it run to exhaustion before I plug it in - which is kind of standard handling for this type of battery)

i bought it because my pervious battery didnt get full charge but this one had that problem too although i updated my bios to fix this but the funny thing is that my old battery did go well after that but this one not. but the main problem with this battery was that when computer runs on battery and you run some heavy program or boot os its shut off suddenly and didn't turn on again unless with power cord. i saw this problem with some other battery before on my old hp laptop and on that case i orderd another battery and it did fix.i think this problem because of old expired long term unused battery in warehouse is.also it didnt be that brand shown on the picture.it was had some unknown chinese brand on it, and at the end i refund this.

This product does function as expected, and I'm enjoying the increased juice and higher typing angle. The battery arrived in time, was packed well, and was in undamaged condition. I reduced one star because the battery has given me the "plugged in, not charging" message, which is a bit nerve-wracking. The message eventually went away and doesn't appear to be a lasting problem, but it makes me nervous. Other than that, the battery seems to be fine.

I love my new battery. It was easily installed by my husband. I was up and running in no time. My laptop now lives more than 2 hours without being plugged in. Now I can use my labtop for 5 - 6 hours before I have to recharge the battery. I would recommend this product.

While the status shows 5 hours are available suddenly the laptop turns off requiring the ac power to start again.

I opted for the 9 cell battery and am getting a solid five hours with it. It raises the back profile of the laptop because it extends below the normal bottom. I like that because it raises the laptop and allows it to run cooler and when it is in your lap it feels much cooler too. You may not like the way it sits on your lap because the weight of the back half is concentrated at that point. If you don't like the high profile you should stay with a 6 cell battery but expect about 3 1/2 hours from it.

One word of unsolicited advice. Whenever you get a new rechargeable battery, for anything, be sure to charge it overnight and read the manufacturers instruction and you'll get much more life in hours and years.
