    I've got a 3 year old Aspire 3002LCi. A software diagnostic reported my
    battery as being only 44% even though it was fully charged. Not too
    surprising as since day one I've been lucky to get 30 minutes of battery
    time.

    Guess the time to consider a replacement has arrived. Any
    recommendations or warnings? Obviously those with the same model I hope
    will add to the comments.

    Pacific Battery is a good place to get a replacement battery.
    Ebay is good as well. Make sure the battery is the same model as the
    one you have.

    I had good luck on ebay..Price about 1/2 of usual price.I do not
    have the same model as you, but I suppose that you have followed
    the calibration instructions which include a complete charge and
    discharge
    in order to get the charge indicator to read correctly. The
    replacement
    battery should be completely discharged and fully recharged about
    three times although it is a Lithium..Mine was four years old..Luck!!!

    These guys are good for Canada/USA. Got a replacement for my 3003 about a
    year ago that is still going strong.

    Did you notice any performance increase beyond that of when the computer
    was new? In other words is the battery performance and better than that
    which shipped new on the computer?
