  • I have had my computer for a year and I already have to replace my battery! You'd think they'd last longer seeing as they cost $175!

  • It depends on. If you take it out when you use the laptop from charger than it last longer. I think you should ask Google:P It depends on what kind of laptop do you have and how much you use it.

  • I have had my laptop for about 3 yrs and it keeps telling me when I turn it on that my battery is nearing the end of it's life cycle so I imagine one day it won't be there but it's plugged in so I haven't worried too much about it

  • I needed a new battery after 4 years (supposedly, i really needed a new charger cord thing). After a while a battery won't hold a charge as long, so it depends if you want to always have an 8 hour charge or if you want to use it plugged in.
