HP sure does know how to ship computers and components in pretty boxes. The HP Mini 1000 comes in a sleek looking black box with a pretty picture of the netbook on the top and information about the computer on the side. And the HP Mini 1000 extended, 6 cell battery comes in a box that’s just as pretty. But as you can see from the picture above, things look a bit different once you open the box. I suppose it shows that HP has faith in the durability of the battery.
Liliputing reader Kiteless ordered the extended battery from HP and has posted a bunch of photos on Flickr, including a few unboxing shots and a number of images comparing the battery to the standard 3 cell HP Mini battery. There are also a few photos of the battery next to a 1 dollar bill. It turns out the HP Mini 1000 batteries are almost exactly the same length as American curency, although the batteries are quite a bit thicker.
You can find a photo slideshow of Kiteless’ pictures after the break, or check out the photoset on Flickr for full sized versions.
