Rated 1 out of 5�by dmsalt13 In need of a 3rd battery in 3 years
I am now in need of my third battery in as many years. First one would not longer keep a charge, would die within 15-30 min on the battery and the second one short-circuited or something. Kept getting really hot and shutting my computer down on both battery power and plugged in. I've always paid the extra and bought directly from Toshiba, but what a waste it's been. And of course, both batteries died right outside any one-year warrenties they might have had. For the 3rd battery, I will be buying from a third party seller.

Rated 1 out of 5�by techbitar Bad luck or bad product
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!!

Rated 5 out of 5�by Teenager tested Don't settle for less
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.
