Want an 8 hour battery for your tiny computer, but don’t want to build one yourself and risk getting stopped by the TSA next time you pass through the metal detector? If you’ve got an Eee PC 901 or 1000, you can now pick up an 8-cell battery, 8800mAh battery that should be good for about 8 hours of use on eBay. The extended battery costs less than $90.

This battery is developed by a third party, not Asus. So use of the battery may void your warranty and if it overheats, explodes, and melts crucial parts of your computer don’t expect Asus to refund your money. But how cool would it to be able to run your computer for an entire work day without once plugging it in?

Of course, the battery pack is huge, not particularly attractive, and probably a bit heavier than the standard 4 or 6 cell battery packs that you can get from Asus. But did I mention, 8 hours?

  1. It’s just that… my 901 runs for 7.5 – 8 hours on one charge with the standard battery… and the only particularly power-saving thing I do further than Linux power management is keep the screen brightness turned down.
