This is getting ridiculous. You may recall I told you here that HP called to say that my battery had been delayed and it would be arriving September 4th. I had spent time on the phone with HP on August 1st to get the new battery. I have since received one email and and THREE phone calls to let me know that the battery I was supposed to be getting would not be coming as promised. Once again, they are experiencing a “back log situation” and therefore the newest time frame for my battery to arrive is September 18th. I must say that once again I will not be shocked if at 4:30 pm on September 18th I get another call from HP letting me know that the battery will not be here. I mean seriously, if the battery was supposed to be here today, and it has not shipped yet, you probably knew that a couple days ago. I’m glad that I don’t use my laptop away from home a lot or places that I am not able to plug into a wall if needed.
