Bought Sept 13, gave it a 3/4 charge, topped up after six months. Started using it a month ago. Just noticed, after enabling the 80% charge setting on my Samsung netbook, that it is not recognised as a smart battery. Sold, and priced, as original so expected it to be a smart battery, as original, it is not. Capacity is better than the cheap batteries but not by much but I thought I was getting a "smart" battery, as was the original.
I have charged this battery fully on a few ocassions now since I bought it in May.i even bought a new charger. The battery just doesn't hold charge for longer than 2 hours. Once again when the optimiser setting is on to use only 80% of the battery it dies even quicker. This doesnt react like the original and for the price I was disappointed.
