Re: Bigger Battery is HERE! 8cell 64Wh - 02-22-2009, 12:53 AM
Only battery for the Mini 9 i can find is the 4-cell for $99. An official 8-cell would be awesome - if you found one, i agree, please post a link!
otherwise, i'm looking at the ebay 8-cells...........

an 8 cell offical would be joy to many people ears after the somewhat dissapointing results some people are getting with the 8 cells from china. and isnt 99$ LESS than the 4 cell battery? (thought those were 129)

I got the 64 Wh one at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 1136wt_958 .
It just arrived today. When AC power is unplugged, the front LEDs blink rapidly. There is also a message at boot saying that the battery was unrecognized and would not charge (and press F1 to continue).
It will not charge unless I remove and reinsert the battery while on AC power. This is annoying especially since it means I have to close the screen to get the battery out. I also might forget and it never gets charged.
I haven't fully discharged or charged it yet. It does seem the charge rate is slow, but I guess that's to be expected since it is a higher capacity.
Also, the new screen and keyboard angle is a bit annoying. I've been putting a pencil under the front when it's on a table.
Of course I'm still happy to have more time between charges.
