Not long enough in my opinion, it seems that it takes longer to charge and less time of battery life. I can estimate that fully charged you can maybe get up to 3 hours before needing to charge again.

On average, 9-cell Lithium-Ion batteries will last approximately three hours on a single charge. Unfortunately, exact battery run time and life span information is not available. Various factors, such as the temperature of the battery, the applications running on the notebook, any attached devices, the brightness of the display, and the notebook power management settings all determine the run time and life span of your battery. Also, the performance and charge times of Lithium-ion batteries decrease over time. There are suggested ways to help increase the run time and life span of your battery:

- Reduce the brightness of the screen to the minimum readable level
- Remove peripherals (External hard drives, CD-ROMs, Zip drives, PC cards, and other peripheral devices) when not in use; these devices can draw power from your battery even when they are not in active use
- Reduce the speed of your processor
- Turn off the Wireless On-Off button when it is not in use (If your notebook has one)

The HP Pavilion dv7-4000 series has 6-cell and 9-cell battery options. This notebook PC already ships with the larger 9-cell battery.

If you need a second 9-cell battery the HP part number is WD549AA#ABB.
