Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap if it works, and keeps working.
Cons:
- Build quality is average. Definitely noticeably worse than original Dell battery. May need some gentle coaxing to fit first few times. - Short life. Early failure.
Other:
Ordered 3 of these batteries. (After testing the first one for a week I ordered 2 more). Original battery is now failing (reads as at end of useful life in Dell Quickset) less than 2 months (but more than 50 days) since buying it. Operating time is now reduced from about 1 1/2 hrs to about 30 mins. Have been told I must ship it back at my expense since more than 50 days so I have to write this off. HOpe the others last.
Bottomline:
If it lasts less than 2 months you won't save any money.
