We already knew that the MSI Wind U115 netbook was capable of getting over 13 hours of battery life with a 6 cell battery? But what happens when you plug in a 9 cell battery and try to stretch the battery life as long as possible?
Johannes from Eee PC.de happened to have a U115, a 9 cell battery, and a day or so to kill. So he decided to find out. Using the Battery Eater test on its least grueling setting, he was able to squeeze 25 hours and 4 minutes of battery life out of the netbook. In real life, with some light web surfing, media playback, and office document editing, you might not get quite as much time out of a battery. But I’m still kind of blown away by these results. I’d be perfectly happy with an 18 hour battery. After all, you’ve got to sleep sometime!
