The replacement battery was purchased for a five year old Toshiba laptop which had a battery that would no longer hold a charge, at all. This inexpensive replacement arrived 65 percent charged and took an hour to fully charge. After installation it was fully depleted after 70 minutes.
When new, the original battery would last two and a half hours. It would be nice if this replacement had a longer charge, but I suppose that is the trade-off given the low price. I don't usually use this laptop unplugged for extended periods so the short battery charge is not a significant issue, but for some users it may be.
No information booklet was included, but usually it is best with a new battery to fully charge and completely discharge three or four times after initial installation rather than plugging-in the laptop in and leaving it. I will update the review if I encounter any problems.
I was online here looking to buy another battery replacement and when I clicked on this option, Amazon reminded me that I bought the same battery in August, 2015. Sadly, it didn't last very long. Most of the time, my laptop is plugged in. Initially, I was happy with this battery since it would give about 6 hours of battery time but it seems like after the Windows 10 upgrade, it won't charge up to more than 50% and unplugged, it barely will last an hour before my laptop shuts down suddenly (despite the battery calculation saying I have 9 hours of time left!) It could be a Windows issue but I have not trusted my laptop to run just on this battery since.
I purchase this replacement battery for an A505-S6005, it is great to have a battery that takes a charge again but when it is fully charge it only last for 75 min. The original battery used to last several hours and I wish that a replacement battery would be the same but I guess you get what you pay for. If you are looking for a lower price replacement battery for your Toshiba laptop and don’t care that it only holds a little over an hour charge then this is the product for you. If you are looking for a battery that can give you a longer battery life I would go for the higher price battery replacement.
