YOURS LASTS 45 MINTES ?!!!?!???
from Summerville SC on 2/21/2010
I am stunned at the reviewers complaining that their Toshiba laptop battery lasts ONLY 45 MINUTES to an hour. If I lose electrical power, I have to RUN to my laptop and shut down all of my open files and browsers as quickly as I can. I am lucky to get everything closed and the computer shut down properly before I lose power. I COVET YOUR 45 MINUTES AND CANNOT BELIEVE THAT ANYONE WATCHES A MOVIE ON THIS BATTERY.
great computer, terrible battery

i love the laptop. had to replace the hard drive after 2 years, and now my battery last only 15 minutes or so on a full charge. and thats with performance on battery saver. things arent built to last. Is it worth the new battery? I'll just stay PLUGGED in.

The Toshiba 9 cell battery isn't what I was suspecting from this company, and I still think they can do much better. I've got this battery brand new with my laptop(L355) and the battery life is 1 hour and 45 mins on a full charge. As disappointed as I am with this product is does perform long enough for most people to type an email,or have a brief chat with grandma. so its great for basic users. However Hard core users beware, if you're using this stay near a desktop or a power socket!

I just love my Toshiba Satellite Laptop. They thought of everything on this workhorse from dual hard drives, FM stereo,VGA and HDMI out, Harmon/ Kardon Speaker system ,4 USB2 ports, CD/DVD-RW and more. With this kind of performance perhaps comes a great sacrifice: The battery. My othe laptop only got about 2 hours run time, so I got an upgraded battery and it will last for 4 plus hours. The Toshiba is lucky to get an hour! And I can not find an upgrade for the battery for longer life. This is absurd...an hour at best and no upgrade option on the battery?! Unbelievable. Makes a great home PC though. Greg W. Vancouver, WA
