Received almost a month ago (Dec 2014). My original DELL Inspiron N7010 (purchased new 2011) had a battery that only lasted a year. At best, the DELL battery held a charge about 1- 1 1/4 hours. Replaced the broken DELL battery about 1 1/2 years ago with a generic Amazon battery. That replacement started out holding a charge 30 minutes, then it went down to about 5 minutes. Received this battery about one month ago - waited to send a review as I wanted to see how it lasted. It's Awesome. The charge holds about 3 hours. I do not know if all the batteries from this vendor are as good as mine, but I like finally being able to use my laptop like a laptop instead of having to always have it plugged in with a cord due to short battery lives. Thanks!
