    I have 6 CF-30 batteries and a car charger to get through a week. Two aren't genuine and last between 2 and 3 hours each. One of those two is actually a counterfeit Panasonic CF-VZSU46 that appeared to be brand new with fake charge capacity numbers but lasts less than 3 hours. I try not to use those crappy batteries except when I run out of options.

    Of the remaining 4, all are genuine, have between 70 and 85% maximum charge left and last between 4 and 7 hours each depending on use. I reckon that if I ever get a brand new battery I might be able to get up to 8 hours.

    I run Linux that I tweaked to use as little power as possible.

    Awesome, good to know! I actually have not replaced the second battery on it. But since I'm using the computer in the shop and will be using it plugged in while stationary, I have not worried about replacing the second battery yet.

    I don't. Not sure if it's worth it?

    It will give you an hour more. Maybe longer depending upon conditions..

    I'm guessing it is just plain CF-30 that was used by them, nothing special and as a non-touch model it's not worth a lot.
