Default Bigger Battery? - 11-06-2008, 08:31 PM

Hello Everyone,

just wondering if Dell (or anyone else) has though of making a bigger battery for the Mini 9?

...maybe a 6 cell one?

Just wondering since I found really nothing yet anywhere!

Only found the same 4-cell battery from the Dell website:

http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/prod ... pid=199236

THX!


Dell Mini Inspiron 9 (910) Obsidian Black, A05 BIOS, 2GB RAM, 32GB Runcore SSD, Bluetooth 2.0, 1.3MP WebCam, OSX 10.6.1 Snow Leopard

Jerseydan31 - right now there only one battery option forthe Mini 9 -- the 4 cell that comes wiht it -- and it gets pretty decent battery life (4+ hours). If you really think a bigger battery would be a popular option, suggest you head over to http://www.ideastorm.com and promote the idea. Thanks!

I'm curious about this item, especially since its very cheap. How much power will it give the mini9, say if you have 10% battery life remaining. And what's the spec on the battery itself?

thanks

Gonna bring this back from the dead. Anyone else have experience with these? How much extra time are you getting with your mini and this? Any other external secondary battery options?

These at least are affordable to the point that I might want to buy some for a really long flight I'm taking in a few months.

Customer comments on Amazon are not kind to this. A search for alternatives show that most are discontinued, though still available from sellers. The APC models look promising - discontinued.
