Alright, I just got my first Laptop last night. (Toshiba Satellite A215) I know all Laptop Batts drain pretty Fast, but mine lasts around 15 mins or so... wtf? :eek:his that normall? Should I just look into an extended Battery ( do they even make them? ) As you might of noticed, I am Fairly computer-illiterate. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

Most last 2-3 hours when fully charged. If this is a new laptop/battery you prolly need to charge it over night..?

The real question is...what were you doing with those 15 minutes?

If you were playing a game that uses a bunch of memory and has complex graphics, then yeah, that thing will die REALLY fast.

If you're just dicking around on the net with the brightness toned down a bit it will last a couple of hours.

mine can last a while ( mac book pro ), atleast a whole movie on an airplane.......i think you should return battery and let the first initial charge, charge for 24 hrs.......bottom line is i don't care what your doing on the laptop for 15 minutes.......battery still should not drain that fast..........DEFECTIVE
