This isn't the one it comes with.

The battery that the L655 laptops originally come with is a 48wh, 6 cell battery. A lot of people's complaints are based on the poor battery life they got with this original battery, not the one represented here. My original battery gave me 3.5- 4hrs of life so maybe others were using high settings and had a lot of programs on start up to only get 2. My issue was that after a little over a year the battery began failing and needed replacement, (otherwise i would have given more stars). This one seems to be even better in terms of life.

Use the eco mode. Increases your battery time by 2 to 3 fold.

Im not a directions guy. So when my battery was dying after a couple hours I was concerned. I then remembered about battery memory and decided to follow the directions. After cycling the battery properly it now has doubled my use time. Guess it pays to follow directions. I still would like a larger battery with the laptop. Get off the greediness, charge a little more and give people a better battery to start. Then you wont have complaints. Customers first, profits follow.

Love the laptop. BUT, review says battery should last 4 hrs but you will be lucky if you get 2 hrs. All I can say is you better have a spare one or carry your charger every where you go.
