I have used this battery for over a year and suddenly it stopped charging with an error message plugged in, not charging. I followed the advice listed on various support forums including Toshiba's but no luck. I never had such a sudden malfunction of batteries before. The replacement cost is too hefty. So now I have a useless laptop, if portability is the primary definition of a laptop. I have been a satisfied owner of 4 Toshiba laptops over the years. This episode is a disappointment. Maybe it's a manufacturer's defect or maybe it's just my bad luck.

This battery is excellent if you are going on a trip or are going to be away from the plug for more that 3 or 4 hours. I have gotten up to 10 hours before having to charge it up again. LOVE IT!!

This battery has lasted 10 months before telling me to change it. Use it 16 hours or more a day. Does get charged when it says its at 10%. Video streaming, Internet use, Texting, Facebook. All typical high demands for a teenager. This battery did come with the computer. If you have the lessor model, use it as a backup. There does come the time when you do finally need a NEW battery. Do the simple checks of other possible battery problems first and then just get a new one.

This is the first laptop that I have ever owned or used. I like my tower better but I am very happy with this product. I am unsure whether or not to get the 12 cell Li-ion battery. It seems that either it works fine or it fails but even the users who like it are not that enthusiastic about it. I think that I'll wait a while as the battery that came with this unit seems to be performing acceptably.
