I love my Toshiba Protege Z835. It's been working great for years. The only thing is that the battery used to run 6 hours without AC and now less then 2. So I was looking around for a new battery and it looks like Toshiba does not make them anymore.
So I purchased this battery. Had to wait a week before I could install it because I found out I needed to get a Torx #7 screwdriver. [...] Yesterday, I finally was able to replace the battery. Pretty simple to do. Unfortunately after replacing the battery, it said 0% and charging, but after a couple of seconds it stopped charging and that was it. Tried all the 'fixes' I could find from the Internet but nothing worked. Then decided to put the old battery back in and it worked just fine & charged normally (Except it only lasts less then 2 hours on a charge). Sadly, would need to return this battery. Did not work.
HWG battery does not work in the Toshiba Portege Z830 Laptop - it won't accept a charge. It's like the laptop is rejecting the replacement battery. I've had to put the old battery back in the laptop to accept a charge, though the old battery charge only lasts about 30 minutes. Still looking for a workable replacement battery for the Toshiba Portege Z830.
So far so good! My old battery would last under 4 minutes so I had to keep the laptop plugged in at all times in fear of losing everything I would work on. This one is a vast improvement over the last one (original). Cant tell if it's a huge improvement over a new original or not but for the time being, it's great.
