You know how sometimes people talk about all day computing and then try to stick you with a battery that gives up after 5 hours? I don’t know about you, but I consider a workday to be at least 8 hours (and usually longer). Now it looks like there’s finally a battery for the Eee PC 901/1000 series that lives up to the promise – even if it kind of kills the whole portability factor of having a netbook.
DealExtreme is selling a 12000mAh battery for Eee PC 901 and 1000 series netbooks for $61.87. To put that in perspective, the battery that came with my Eee PC 1000H is a 6 cell, 6600mAh battery. In other words, the DealExtreme battery should last nearly twice as long, and my battery is good for almost 5 hours of continuous use.
On the other hand, this thing is gargantuan. My 6 cell battery weighs 10.7 ounces. The 10 cell battery weighs 19.05 ounces. While that might not seem like a lot, every ounce matters when you’re talking about devices that typically weigh around 3 pounds or less.
If you have an older Eee PC model (like an Eee PC 900 or 701), DealExtreme also sells a 10400mAh battery that should add a bit of heft (and battery life) to those models for $49.90.
The link for the 12000 mAh battery takes me to 10400 mAh battery.
When will they start making these batteries for the 900A and 900HA!
if you find out let me know too. Thanks
