Samsung doesn’t officially sell a 9 cell battery for the NC10 netbook. But you can pick up some third party 9 cell batteries on eBay for just under $100.

While third party batteries can be flaky sometimes, often providing less run time than you’d expect or dying altogether shortly after your purchase, the folks at UMPC Fever have run some tests on the Samsung NC10 9 cell batteries, and the results look promising. A typical 6 cell battery last for between around 5 hours and 8 hours depending on how you use it. These 9 cell batteries run for between roughly 7 and 12 hours, which represents a 50% performance increase, which is pretty much what you would help for from a battery with 3 additional cells.

  1. “Samsung NC10 9-cell battery”

    That header is instantly and badly misleading. It gives an all-important first impression that this IS a Samsung battery, when it is not..

    It should read

    “9-cell battery for Samsung NC10”

  2. Hmm. Let me guess. 1.33 – 1.13 kg = 0.200 gr – is the weight of 3 cells. So with 9 cell battery, our favourite NC10 will be about 1.54 kg

  3. I wouldn’t think the NC10 and NC20 would use the same battery. The 20 has a larger screen which would make the over all case dimensions different.
