Hack the 3cell pack into a 6cell, DONATE TODAY - 07-08-2010, 04:07 AM
I have 2 dell 1012 netbooks with 3cell batteries that I find give me about 4 hours. Im thinking of buying a 6cell batt. for one pc and hacking the other two small battery packs together for the other dell.
I came across this post . Battery Mod/Hack/Upgrade?
and that got me thinking of just buying 3 more loose cells and just hacking 1 battery pack into a 6cell and leaving the other alone.
I was hoping someone with a stock 3cell system like mine upgraded to a 6 cell and no longer needs there unused 3cell pack. This would mean the batteries are a factory match and still close to original manufactured date. The cheapest solution for now.
Any problems with this idea? (are there hidden switches , chips , or missing contact switches, or any differences between a 3cell and a 6cell)
Who wants to donate that unused 3 cell pack to me
