The battery barely held a charge longer than an hour of use. The stock battery I was trying to replace was that bad, that's why I bought this one. At least the one I got was a joke, I would not recommend buying it.
This battery is the same as the one advertised on the HP website, only for a lot less money! On the site, if you buy the extra battery separately (instead of with a laptop purchase) the price is $130 - plus shipping and tax! Right now they're offering free shipping for the holidays and some coupons, but it still came out costing more. Amazon offers it for $99 with free shipping. Overall, another reason I always check Amazon before making any purchase.
My only gripe is that this is the biggest battery HP offers for this laptop series, while other laptops have 9 cell batteries options.
