Battery falls out; poor fitment.
on January 15, 2016
Ok, I bought this for my sister. My sister happens to have the same laptop as me (an HP Pavilion). When the package arrived I found that the anti-static bag had already been cut open. Because I was concerned (about the open bag) I decided to test the battery in my laptop. To my happiness, the battery life was great! No issues there; it performed for me all day at work. Now for the bad part: the battery comes out too easily. The battery actually comes out of the laptop without unlocking it! It is a poor fitment issue. Already (in just two work days) the battery has accidentally become removed from the laptop three times! This, of course, causes the laptop to do a forced shutdown (loses all power). It should be noted that my original battery is also an extended battery (just like this one) and my original does not fall out on it's own. I am pretty upset that it won't stay in. I thought about taping it in, with duct tape. But this is a gift for my sister, so I can't tell her just to slap tape on her laptop. Definitely frustrated. I hope other people have had better fitment than I have.
