The battery does seem to hold a charge for a long time.
Suzanne Thomas
Love the battery bought an extra one so my wife could have a spare one charging at all times.
Danny Cannon
The time the batteries lasted was virtually the same with both -- about 10 minutes.

Based on a phone call to Hoover: If you want your battery to last and work properly do not store the battery on the charger or in the vacuum. Fully charge the battery and use it in the vacuum. If the battery runs out, fully charge it again (3 hours and a light on the charger will pulse when ready) and then store it separately. If the battery has not run out you can choose to recharge it so it fully loaded (again, take it off the charger when the light pulses) and then store it separately. Since a full charge only takes 3 hours an overnight charge is not recommended.

I bought this for use with my Hoover Linx stick vac, which I LOVE. Cannot live without that thing. The battery lasts about 15-20 min and so I wanted an extra so that I'd always be able to finish a job. I was finding that I'd forget how much power was left in the battery, how much time I had on the battery. Sometimes I'd have 15 min, sometimes just 5. And since I use the vac so much, it made sense to have the back up battery. One thing I'd encourage everyone to do is get a timer switch for your wall outlet. I got the Belkin Conserve Socket F7C009q Energy Saving Outlet which was tendollars on Amazon. Basically, plug the charger into the Belkin outlet and you can push the 3-hr button when you put the battery in. It turns off power supply at 3 hours, just when the batt is fully charged. That way there's no risk of battery drain.

In fact, I don't know if this battery was bad or the one that came with the vac was bad. In any case, someone else wrote here about a battery failure and Hoover replacing it, so bad batteries may be common. Here's my battery experience with two batteries.

The vac has indicator lights showing charge status: 3 lights full or nearly full, 2 lights lower, 1 light lower still, 1 blinking light-almost dead. Hoover's official position on battery life: 12-15 minutes. My test results with vac only, no beater brush running:

Battery 1 goes from 3 lights to 2 in 5 minutes, 2 to 1 in 3 more minutes, and 1 to blinking in 4 more minutes. Total running time 12 minutes.

Battery 2 goes from 3 lights to 2 in 1 minute, 2 to 1 in 2.5 minutes, and 1 to blinking in 3 more minutes. Total running time 6.5 minutes.

I just spent 30 minutes on the phone with Hoover. The first CSR treated me like I was a moron, and then when I explained my tests, she said, "OK. Send it to us and we'll check it out." Gave me an address. Then put me on hold, came back, put me on hold, came back and said, "I'm transferring you to another department." (It was like that light company ad on TV.) After another 10 minutes on hold, a guy came on the phone with no knowledge of why I was calling, heard the story again, and then said, "Ship it to us, and we'll check it out." Frankly, I'll be surprised if I ever see that battery, much less a replacement battery, again.

Followup 8/22/2011: I just had a call from Hoover. The CSR says, "As a courtesy we're going to send you a new battery, but the battery you sent us was out of warranty. The Mfrs code says it is over two years old and not covered by warranty." I bought this in May, sent the bad battery in August. Hmmm.

I just went to order a new battery for my vacuum and was surprised at the price. I went on Hoovers website and it is $69.99 on their website. Right before I went back to Amazon, I saw this response from Hoover to a review:

Merchant response: Thank you for your feedback! Please follow these steps to charge your LiNX battery

Remove the LiNX Battery from the charger. Unplug the charger from the wall outlet. Slowly count to 30 and then plug the charger back into the wall outlet. You should see a single blink of the blue light on the charger when you plug it back into the wall outlet. Then place the battery in to the charger and allow 2-3 hours for charging.

I would try this before ordering a new battery.

The thing about lithium batteries is that they run out of power without much warning. Sure there's a gauge/light on the vacuum, but if your not paying attention it can stop in the middle of vacuuming. Recharging a battery can put vacuuming on hold for an hour, but with a fully charged spare battery in the charger you can quickly swap batteries and resume vacuuming.

Added after more than a year:
I am not sure what all the battery/charger in/out discussion is about. During the last year,we have left the vacuum cleaner batteries in the charger and swap them as needed, without any negative affects. I treat these batteries the same as all my lithium rechargeable batteries in my phones and several cordless tools. When they're discharged I put them in the charger, and leave them there until I need them. Maybe the chargers have a different charging programs, or are smarter than others. I have not had to replace a lithium battery yet, and some of them are 5 years old. I think using a timer is a great idea to save energy, and I might use it, but it won't be because I have battery life problems.

PS The vacuum still runs like new. It's really handy for a quick clean-up.
