A fine replacement battery.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lavolta 4400mAh 11.1V Laptop Battery for Samsung RV510/RV511/RV515/RV520/RC730/R519/R522/R530/R720/R730/Q320/NP-RV510/NP-RV511/NP-RV515/NP-RV520/NP-RC730/NP-R519/NP-R522/NP-R530/NP-R720/NP-R730/NP-Q320 (Accessory)
I have had the battery for about 4 months now and surprisingly it works better than expected. With the original battery my laptop would hold for about 3h whereas with this one its at least 4.5h. Also the off switch that tells how much battery is left was a pleasant improvement and comes in very handy. gave it 4 stars only because I felt it was kinda pricey.

You say you thought the battery you bought was "kinda pricey". The cost inc VAT & shipping for a replacement battery via Samsung's authorised UK repair company is around £70. You don't state what you paid but this information might put your outlay in perspective.

I have purchased the battery for around 40 pounds, but when saying it's pricey I was comparing it to other non-authentic batteries on the market. Although it is cheaper than a 70 pound Samsung battery, a similar battery is available on Amazon for 25 pounds ( I just typed Samsung RV511 battery into the Amazon search box). In summary is it cheaper (and in this case slightly better) than the original Samsung battery ? YES. Can a similar battery be found even cheaper? Also YES.
Hope it helps
