As far as I know, Lenovo doesn’t yet offer a 6 cell battery for the IdeaPad S10 netbook. But apparently somebody is making one, because a Zol.com.cn forum member posted several pictures of a Lenovo IdeaPad S10 with a high capacity battery.
Like most 6 cell netbook batteries, this one sticks out of the back of the computer a bit, making the S10 slightly more bulky. But that’s a small price to pay for an add-on which should double your battery life.
There’s no word on pricing or availability outside of China yet.

hmm nice thing to see, still im not sure how much time this lenovo machine will take to take care of competition in market with Dell, Toshiba and other brands.
When is the 6 cell version out in the UK?
I’d like to point out that it’s in fact NOT sticking out in a way most big netbook batteries stick out – from the bottom. It doesn;t seem to be quite as nice, when it comes to placement of nig batteries, as Thinkpads…but at least it’s mostly out of the back. Which makes it quite a bit nicer to work with…
Now, if only their netbook had one killer feature of Thinkpads – the Trackpoint…
(at this moment – I think I’m not buying any netbook for a long time because they aren’t properly portable – you can get full functionality I’d like to have only by carrying a mouse/finding flat surface; oh well, used/refurbished X41 will beslightly cheaper, slightly more heavy…and can still fit without problems in my normal bag I carry around)
The 6-cell-battery model will be a standard configuration at least in Germany, see e.g. the specs here:
Unfortunately the S10 isn’t even available over here in europe yet, with no release date in sight!!!
I wish lenovo would get their act together, it looks like a such beautiful machine.
