I ordered a replacement Toshiba battery, on 1st June 2015, and it arrived yesterday 10th June from Germany.
I was concerned when I saw the negative reviews dating from 2011, 2012. I paid 24GBP, about 35 euro. I am very happy with replacement battery, and now I have a 90min run time, instead of a 2 minute dud cutting out. Batteries do age, and deteriorate over time, and I suspect mine was 8 years old.

Folks, I spoke too soon. I used the laptop on battery for 1.5 hours 2 weeks ago, and it died. Plugged in mains, and now battery is 0% after a deep discharge, and won't charge at all. Flat as a pancake! Need mains full time. I got approx 10 weeks out of it, but it died at the first deep discharge.
