Excellent battery life, inexpensive to replace

 

The indicator at the bottom is an easy way to look and see how much power you have left. It also saved my butt once when I thought my Inspiron 600M laptop had a motherboard problem. It turned out that the battery was simply dying because I had had it...

easy to use, indicator lights at the bottom

The Latitude D600 is a worthy successor to the previous range of Latitudes, with good performance and battery life. The one slightly annoying thing about it is that it doesn't accept the previous version's modular drives, so there's no upgrade path if...

Just what I expected

 

Great battery for an older laptop. Brought my battery life back up to like new. I would definitely recommend for anyone with an older latitude battery.

Don't bother w/non-Dell batteries for Latitude

 

My original battery lasted about 3 years, and was getting a bit tired near the end. I found a battery online (turned out to be a Chinese supplier) that lasted a whole 3 months, so I took went with Dell. More money, but it hasn't stumbled yet, and if it...
