Has always been something I’ve had to pay attention to with my two Acers, both less than five years old.

Replaced the first battery, bought it directly from Acer not willing to risk something on Amazon that although much cheaper, may have safety concerns; there was just enough talked about on this issue that I decided the substantial extra money (I think a solid $50) to ensure I have the exact battery I needed for the exact laptop from the exact manufacturer without worry of any safety issue was worth it.

I use video and editing programs a lot, but can squeeze almost three hours out of the batteries most days. They definitely lose their juice though over relatively short periods of time by my standards. I’d prefer they lasted ten years.
