I have a p205-6337, I have had it and the 6 cell that came with it for about 5 years. I was getting an hour to an hour and a half on high performance from the 6 cell. Came back for the 9 cell replacement. To those that get poor life out of yours I say, read all instructions before touching, maintain your equipment, and use your battery saver settings for times you need more battery life.

was going to pick up a replacement battery at the same time i upgraded my hard drive. read the battery ratings and decided it wasn't worth the price. will buy a new battery only when i have to. maybe then someone else will come out with a decent battery for the satellite computer by then. LOVE MY SATELLITE COMPUTER !

Battery life is to be desired, I purchased the P205D-S8812. Love the system has been good to me with Both windows7, And Debian Linux duel boot. Battery life is very bad, in Windows7 Battery does last longer than with Vista installed I can get 45 minutes, 28 minutes in Vista. But in Linux I can get about an hour. I have not purchased this battery YET but due to the reviews ill buy one when my battery stops working.

I bought this computer for my wife but she never used it. I took it over when my desktop quit. Battery last only 45 min. I use this notebook pluged in all the time. It is a bit big to carry around. I have it 2.5 years and not one problem it is easy to video chat with the grand kids love the built in web cam. I have had computers since the early 90's and this is my favorite.
