I have 2 toshiba laptops and both use the same battery but one came with a 9cell and 6cell. Yes the 6cell last my wife about 2-2.5hrs on full charge and its going on 2yrs old now - when new in Feb 2010 it last 3.5-4hrs all day and the 9cell is the daughters and was bought in Feb 2009 and the battery is still running strong. At 1st it got 5.5-7hrs full charge but, now it gets about 4.5-5hrs max she says and she is on it all the time with FB, videos and the like. If you have problems with the battery it is probably the computer or charger itself.
A must if your going to stream your favorite TV .

I have had excellent luck with this battery. It came with the A305 S6905. I get 3.5 to 4.0 hrs and defiantly get 3.5 hrs. while I stream racing from Justin TV. The others that have rated it poorly have computer problems or software problems of some sort. As for the bump om the bottom, true but a small price to pay for the power and quality you get.

The degradation process is fast in comparison with other vendors. In my case it felt from 3,5 hours down to 20 minutes in les than 6 months. Actually it doesn't support more than 10 min. To find the replacement in South American countries is a complex task.

this 9 cell battery has given me no more than an hour and 40 min. of work time. I now am buying a new one because I have about 20 min. to work after the original purchase of 1 year. Bad battery. Will not get another Satellite machine.
