Original battery started to fade. Bought this one at a good price. Runs 6 hours. About twice as long as the battery that came with my laptop. This battery comes with a ridge across it that raises the back of the laptop about 1/2 inch. It's not a problem and in fact allows extra air to circulate around the computer but none of the literature indicated that it would do that. So if you get it must be aware that your laptop will not lay perfectly flat with this battery.
It snaps right in. Not shown in the photo is the extra cells don't fit flush with the bottom of the PC. Makes a semi stand, it may or may not be to your liking.
There is a larger capacity battery for 100 bucks, I don't think it would be worth more than double the price of this item.
The battery is better than my original one. It lasts about 2+ hours though. A couple of other reviews on here say it lasts around 5 to 6 hours (which is the reason I bought it). So I'm a bit dissappointed. It may be my laptop that is the issue, but I'm not sure.
