We have several spare laptops that we've accumulated in the past few years. Our oldest son was given our HP and it needed a replacement battery. This battery is just as good as the old battery and we've had it for half a year. The charge lasts for quite a while when it's unplugged. The price was right (we bought it from Amazon) .
My computer needed a new battery because I charged it so much. This one worked. I'm thinking I should have just bought a new computer however instead of messing with the battery and going through the trouble of getting someone to install it. I was satisfied however next time I will just buy a new laptop.
