Vostro 7620, battery?

Vostro 7620

Vostro 7620

Hi everyone!

I got Vostro 7620 7 months ago and on the paper it looked like a dream laptop. When it came it was a disappointment. Latitude 5320 I also have, feels much better, sturdier and just more professional.

But, it is what it is.

I have one question and I'm hoping someone could help me. Battery on Vostro 7620 is just terrible. It can pull max 1 hour 30 minutes I'm thinking of purchasing 86Wh battery but found a thread on Reddit where a user bought the new battery and only got 15 more minutes of it.

It could be only purchased from Dell and it costs $160! (for a battery, c'mon)

Anyway, I need better battery on Vostro as I'm not planning to sell it. Would you recommend getting the new battery?

And can someone please tell me why this laptop sounded amazing on paper and felt 3-star when working on it?

Please see attached screenshots and how the battery just jumps up and down. This is not performance of a serious business laptop...

Vostros are just Inspiron systems with a different paint scheme and a slimmer software load -- they're consumer-grade notebooks.  You can't compare them to Latitudes on features and build;  they're designed to sell at low prices.

The battery should run longer than that -- what is running on the system  when you experience the short battery runs?  You'll never see 4+ hours out of that battery in an extreme budget notebook, but you should be able to top 3 hours.
