4 Star Review   By Cage on HP - Nov 6, 2010   

Used it all through grad school in a tx2. Was able to browse the web, take notes and study in tablet mode for hours without recharge. Not a miracle battery, but def. better than the factory.

PJ12 Lithium Battery - 12 Cell Upgrade
4 Star Review   By member KFlanagan - Feb 8, 2010   

Strengths: Double the run time on the laptop.

Weakness: Twice the size of the original battery.

Came in as a "opened item" this was stated on the site, the package was a little rough. However this was a great overall value and there were no challenges with the battery.

12-Cell Lithium-Ion Battery
5 Star Review   By member gramburney - Apr 9, 2009   

Strengths: Length of unplugged power, "fat" battery acts as a stand to elevate and to allow better cooling

Weakness: None so far

My husband says this may be the best gift I ever gave him! His laptop was only lasting about 15 minutes on battery power, and now it lasts close to four hours! I don't think he'll be without a 12-cell ever again. (I know I won't be!) Along with the memory upgrade, he almost feels like he has a new laptop.

GREAT BATTERY!!!
4 Star Review   By shooter044 on HP - Jan 30, 2009   

this was a great battery. I've used it since december of 06. I am now buying a new one cause it doesn't hold its charge as well as it used to. i am buying the same battery though. its great and since it drops down it props up the keyboard which(i think) make it more comfortable and natural to type on the keyboard. it also keeps the bottom of the laptop off the surface below it which helps keep it from overheating.

Weight is great and battery life is excellant. It does add additional weight to the notebook but that is to be expected.

Great Transaction - Just as expected
4 Star Review   By member mikethewizz - Aug 25, 2008   

Strengths: Product as described, no issues. Fast shipping.

Weakness: Form factor of battery.

Great battery life, although I generally stay plugged in I have gotten 5+ hours on couple of occasions. I know it is an extended battery, but I would expect the design to be better. The protruding section (which exist on almost all extended batteries) is only as long as the original battery. This means the rear base of the laptop now sits on approx. 2/3rds the space it sat on before. This seems a little less stable than I would have preferred. It also sits awkwardly when using on you lap. Given the life of the EOM battery this is a must have!

Unbelievable!
5 Star Review   By member wesmain51 - Mar 20, 2008   

Strengths: Waaay more battery life. Nice forward tilt. Better cooling.

Weakness: A tad pricy, and heavier than the original.

I bought this for my girlfriend’s Presario v5000. The old 6-cell was worn out and lasting 20 minutes if she was lucky. This 12-cell is light-years better! In her own words, “I expected that it would be better, but not THAT much better!!” She’s thrilled. She hasn’t actually had the chance to run it down yet, but after over an hour in Vista “power saver” mode, it was at 91%. Sweet! Oh, and since the battery is bigger, it does put the laptop/keyboard on a nice forward angle, and the laptop does run cooler now. It adds a bit of weight, but the v5000 was already on the heavy side so it’s not much different.

Review for 12-cell Li-Ion battery from HP store
5 Star Review     

Strengths: The one I bought from a discount retailer had no strengths except maybe that it fit into my laptop. The one I subsequently bought from the HP store is great. It lasts for 4+ hours.

Weakness: First one was clearly second-rate or used (sold as new), did not charge properly, and did not charge fully. The second one I bought is still performing perfectly.

The battery came in an unmarked box with no manual, original packaging, or anything identifying what the battery was. The battery also did not work properly. It didn't charge fully and when it did charge it only did so intermittently. This was clearly a user or second hand battery that did not function properly and should not have been sold. I returned this battery and got a new one from the HP store. It cost a little more but was well worth it. It charges quickly and provides well over four hours of continuous use (playing music, running a bittorrent client, browsing the internet, etc). It is a little heavier and bulkier than the 6-cell, but it puts the keyboard at a nice angle when the laptop is sitting on a desk. I would recommend the 12-cell to anyone who needs a new battery for their laptop. Just put up the extra money to make sure you get the real deal.

12-Cell Lithium-Ion Battery
4 Star Review   By member gino1765 - Apr 30, 2006   

Strengths: Gives you more current independent worktime.

Weakness: A little bit bulky and heavy (if you travel a lot)

The specification says that it will give you up to 8 hours of worktime, but that depends a lot on what you are doing. My own experience is that the batterie is good for about 4-5 hours real worktime. Together with the original batterie it will give you 6-7 hours which is quite enough if you are traveling in an airplane in the US. For longer flights you should have two batteries.

Battery Review
5 Star Review   By member GregMartyn - Oct 24, 2005   

Strengths: Very noticeable improvement in battery life over 6-cell

Weakness: Bulges out from the the laptop

My HP Pavilion dv4000 was virtually useless for traveling because the 6-cell battery would die after 90 minutes. I'm not really sure how long the 12-cell lasts because I always seem to have enough power. It probably lasts around 3 hours, but it made a huge difference. This came at the expense of carrying a little more weight, and having a bulge come out of the laptop. It's basically like there is another 6-cell glued to the bottom of the laptop. It puts the keyboard at an angle when placed on a desk, but that is actually more of a feature than a weakness.
