    i would advise buying directly from HP, the risk is too great in my opinion to buy some 3rd party battery that damages your machine.

    You're machine technically is a 2000, its just a variation of it. I have the battery and it lasts forever with some pretty heavy usage, just over 5 hours for me.

    I bought the battery from Fry's Electronics here in SoCal for $99.

    Is there anyone else having the same result?
    whose production is this extraordinary battery unit?

    5 hours is incredible. But possible with some carefull tweaking. But if your running it with all the options on you could get close to 2.5 hours as well. I average around 4 hours with 70% screen brightness and on balanced settings.

    Sorry for the delay, yes I bought it in store at Fry's. I have tweaked my graphics and power settings a little but nothing major. I just used this baby for 5:12mins on the flight to Dubai. Loving this battery.
