The battery for my Dell latitude D630 (purchased in August 2007) is only holding charge for approximately 30 minutes. When purchased, it held charge for about 2 hours.
The Dell website sells two batteries for this laptop:
85 WHr 6-Cell Lithium-Ion http:// accessories.us.dell.com/sna/products/Power/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04&sku=310-9081&mfgpid=190782&chassisid=8515#Overview
**(Only allowed to post 1 hyperlink as a new user so there is a space between http:// and accessories...)
Aside from a couple good reviews for the 56 WHr battery, both batteries have awful reviews saying that the battery works great for about a year and then completely dies right after the 1-year warranty runs out.
Can you recommend a third-party battery, or contradict the bad reviews on the Dell site? I am primarily concerned with longevity and capacity of the battery. In terms of capacity I am looking for at least 2 hours of battery power, preferably more.
