acer timeline

There are two ways to squeeze extra battery life out of a computer. You can reduce power consumption, and you can use a ridiculously high capacity battery. It looks like come December, Acer Aspire Timeline users will have the option of taking both approaches.

The Acer Timeline series includes a number of thin and light laptops with screens ranging in size from 11.6 inches to 15.6 inches. They all use Intel CULV (Consumer Ultra Low Voltage) processors, which offer better-than Atom performance while consuming less power than other Intel or AMD laptop processors.

The Timeline laptops currently ship with 6 cell batteries which can provide between 4 and 8 hours of battery life. But at a recent event in Germany, Acer announced plans to release a 9 cell battery in December. reports that it should provide up to 12 hours of run time for some Aspire Timeline models.

There’s no word on pricing, and it’s not clear whether the battery will come standard with some Timeline computers or if it will be available as an optional accessory. On the one hand, it will certainly add some weight to these thin and light notebooks. On the other hand, a 12 hour battery would be pretty awesome.

  1. I tell you what that 9-cell in a ‘clear picture’ would not look as nice as that picture above! I’m telling you right now, that machine will look like a pile of dung with the 9-cell sticking out of it. And, it will weight a ton as well.

    The only solution is bettery battery technology not the fifteen year old power cell tech they keep slapping in these machines. Highter capacity slimmer cells is the ONLY solution, not duct taping more cells on the case.
