"Bought this for my wife's laptop to replace the dead 6 cell.. It does add to the weight, but the trade off is it props up the lap top to allow more air underneath and the extended battery time is well worth it."

Love lost

"Loved this battery for the first two years I owned the computer, now it only lasts about an hour on any power setting. It's bulky and makes the computer heavier, but when new it would last almost all day in the office."
