Tired of waiting to get your hands on an MSI Wind laptop with a 6-cell battery? Don’t feel like paying $50 extra for the higher capacity battery? Looks like you can build your own. It won’t be pretty, but it’s certainly possible, as one member of the MSI Wind.net forums has shown.
The concept is pretty simple. You get your hands on a few of the 3.7v, 2200mAh cells used in the MSI Wind batteries (Wind Master at the MSI Wind.net forums is selling them, 8 for £15), cut open your battery pack (this is the scary part), and cram the extra batteris in. The result? A laptop that weighs a little more, has an unsightly bottom, and runs for 8 hours or more on a single charge.
