The 12-cell HP EV089AA laptop battery is compatible with the Compaq Presario F572us

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I would try to find out if the 12-cell HP battery is officially compatible with the F572. So I asked the online Compaq/HP customer support and they confirmed that the 12-cell HP EV089AA notebook battery is compatible with the Compaq Presario F572us. In theory it should double the runtime, although one notebook forum user said he got as much as five hours. This obviously depends on what type of applications one is running and things like that. The price at the HP/Compaq website is $150 with free shipping. Sells for less online or at brick and mortar stores, especially when on sale (I believe it's $130 at Staples starting Sunday August 26)... I am not going to get the 12-cell battery right away, but when I do, I will write about it right here right away!

Found it for 108.00 + shipping.
The 12 cell battery I use from HP part # is 411463-141

This is the one HP told me to buy and I get about 2 hrs or less of run time depending on what I am doing.

I just spoke with a representative of HP who told me that there are no compatible 12-cell batteries for this model. I even had him check this particular model number and he still said no.

It depends on which rep answers. I was told by both an online and a telephone CSR that this battery works with it. Other people were also told the same thing.

This laptop is a clone of HP branded models, so perhaps the CSR in question was only looking for Compaq-branded batteries for it?
