mini 10v 6 cell battery issue - 06-29-2010, 03:04 AM
I finally got a mini 10v firmware A05 and installed osx without any problem thanks to the info I found on this forum
Now I wanted to get a 6 cell battery so I bought this one on ebay.
I plug the battery, turn on the computer and the light flashed orange. Then I have a message "unrecognized battery type. You won't be able to charge the battery". Does anybody have more infos on this problem?

There is no way to remove the check that I know of. With the Mini 9, that check was added in BIOS A02, but the the 10v may always have had it.
If you can't get the third-party battery to work, I suggest getting a refund and buying a Dell battery.

The battery that Wal-Mart sells on their online store is a Dell battery. Its under 70$ and that includes shipping. The only small problem is it does not exactly fit in the 10V. You can do a little shaving on the battery pad and it will slide in with a snug fit.
You will more than double your battery life. I went from 2 hrs; 15 minutes to six hours with the six cell. And I use the old 3 cell as a backup now. Hard to beat that kind of deal. fdalbor
