9 cell extended batteries


Recommended Posts

Hi I have a D620 with Lion installed all working great thanks to all the great info on osxlatitude. So many thanks first :-)


The D620 I bought didn't have a great battery so I sought a new (non genuine) extended one from ebay. I bought one of these:




But sent the first one back and had a replacement as after battery life got to just below 50% it would dramatically drop to nearly empty (it was charged and discharged fully several times and I used xbattery app to plot the life of the battery).


The new one is the same (only charged and discharged a couple of times up to now).


Has anyone had a similar issue? It's not something to do with MAC OSX or the kext or build due to it being a hackintosh?


I suspect it's just because it's a non genuine cheap battery but interested to hear anyone else's opinion.


Thanks in advance

received my genuine second hand Dell extended battery and got my refund on the new cheap copy one - world of difference :-) The second hand one only cost me a couple of quid more as well - so beware the cheap ones (but have to admit and seller was very accommodating, provided a replacement very quickly and when that was no good they refunded the item as soon as I shipped it back and they refunded the return postage)
