The maximum capacity of all HP laptop batteries decreases with time and use, just like Dell Laptop Batteries, Gateway Laptop Batteries and other brands . Loss of battery capacity varies with product configuration and usage, including but not limited to product model, applications running, power management settings, and product features. The battery warranty covers defects in materials or workmanship resulting in failure; it does not cover natural deterioration of battery capacity. To determine if a battery has had a warrantied failure, you may need to run additional diagnostics.
