Has anyone gotten one of these batteries or had any experiences with one of them?

Received lowest quality mini 9 with 512 megs RAM, 4 GB SSD. Additions:
-4 GB SSD [2 GB SD Card: getting 16 GB SDHC]
Sold for $180 so I could buy Mini 10, XP/Ubuntu, 160GB HD, 1GB RAM, 1366x768 screen, 6-cell for $260.
[Extra screen space IS AMAZING, as is having a working keyboard]

Has anybody done testing with the 8 cell?
How does it work, etc?

Is there any more reliable place to get it than the Amazon marketplace?

it is awkward to use; the lights flash, and it only charges under arcane conditions. other people put up with it, but i've found having two of the regular batteries works better for me.

Me too, 2 batteries will give me 8 hours and they work propertly, charge propertly, the computer fits in the bag and can stand flat on a table. I really hate small netbooks with batteries protuding from the back. Props to asus eee that puts 6-cell batteries in a standard form-factor.
