Just what we needed. The old monitor would not hold a charge and it was easily fixed with this. I thought my son broke my last one so I was on my second monitor but now I wonder if it was just the battery. Probably worth trying before buying another monitor.
Perfect fit for the Infant Optics DXR-5 monitor, I just with they battery itself lasted longer. I've had to replace it after only 6 months because the one that came with the monitor lost some chargeability and would only power the monitor for 15 minutes on a full charge. When new it runs for over 2 hours just like this replacement one does.
Pros: -Restored battery life for baby monitor -Easy to install
I haven't owned this long enough to comment on how well the battery life is maintained over time. We replaced the original battery after 2 years with this one and wish that I had done it much sooner because the monitor was tethered to the charger since the original battery wouldn't hold much of a charge after the first year or so. We will see how long this one lasts...
We only got a year out of the first battery that came with the baby monitor. The monitor still works plugged in, but just won't hold a signal after a couple minutes when unplugged and eventually shuts off. It's not a pairing issue, as I pair the devices every couple months. Pain in the butt, yet makes a difference. We use the monitor almost 24/7 the first year and now only use it a few hours in the evening or during mid-day naps. The new battery works as expected. Wish the batteries lasted longer, but at $9 it's not a big deal to replace it considering how much we use it.
I had bought a spare battery with the product and after the monitor was giving me some problems I decided to install this brand new battery. It failed to work, so the company very kindly replaced the monitor. The battery however failed to charge at all and I cannot take the unit into another room unless it is plugged into an electric outlet at all times - which defeats the purpose.
My original battery wasn't holding charge for more than 15 minutes after almost 2 years of use, so I decided it was time for a replacement. I'm glad I found this on Amazon. It is the same exact battery as the original one that came with the camera. I've used it for a couple of weeks now and it holds the charge for more than 4 hours on lowest brightness setting. I will update this review if anything changes, but as of now, I love this new battery!
