Customer Review:


I have had other laptop batteries lasting well over two years. This one really disappointed me. It looks like in order to cut costs, Dell may have sacrificed quality.


From the looks of it, many people are having the same problem I have with the laptop battery. The battery was giving decent run times until it reached an age of about 20 months. After that, it went to about 10 minutes of run time.



While this is not an absolutely horrible lifetime, I typically have had Dell Latitude D830 Battery last about 3 to 3.5 years before this happens.


The Dell latitude D830 battery replacement reivew in Amazon:


I have a Dell D830 (purchased 1.75 years ago) & a Dell D820 laptop (purchased about 3.5 years ago). The batteries are interchangeable in these 2 and the old D820 battery has begun failing to hold charge so I bought the AGPTEK Super-Capacity Li-Ion battery. The Latitude D820 Battery arrived DOA, no status lights and neither Dell recognized it. I sent it back for $8.70 in postage and the replacement does work and so far is reporting a good charge: 3.5-4 hours in the Dell D830, which is about the same as the 1.5 year old battery reports. The replacement is only a month from manufacture if I read the code AGPTek pasted on it (it has 20090720 embedded in it), and both the dud and the replacement fit well in both my Dells. However with the cost of shipping the dead battery back this battery was not such a bargain.


Purchased the Dell Latitude D820 Battery in Nov 2008 and it worked as advertised for between 6 and 7 months. At that point it quickly lost the ability to hold a charge. It still works in that my laptop can run for about 15 minutes on the battery, however the battery has bottomed out and only accepts ~20% of the capacity it had when new.



My experience with original Dell batteries is that they last about 18 months, however the cost is much higher.


This replacement battery for a Dell Latitude D830 Battery lasted 3 months before the charge wouldn't last more than an hour. The original battery would run for 3.5-4 hours on a charge, and lasted for over a year. Now at 5 months on this battery, the computer tells me that my battery is "reaching the end of its useful life".
