Nice reliable battery,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cameron Sino - (Electronics)
I have this 6600 battery AND also the higher rated
"Replacement Extended Battery (Blue 7800mAh) for Acer Aspire One" both purchased from SuperGPS.
Both are made by Cameron Sino, a Chinese company which appears to produce batteries for well known companies when investigated.
The warentee on the Cameron Sino/SuperGPS batteries is a full year, Acers own website only offer a 6 month warentee on batteries sourced direct from them. To me that says a lot about build quality! Actually I have seen one of Acers badged batteries from thier website shop and that was made in China, not Japan as the orig equipment battery was.
The Cameron Sino 6600 battery is a shade smaller than the 7800, but the weights are pretty much the same. It holds its charge very well and on low power consumption my WinXP hard drive Aspire rates it as holding at least 7 hours run time. You loose about a third to a half of this time if you are running a mobile broadband stick, due to the high power drain.
Both batteries recharge very quickly 3 - 4 hours from flat, which considering the run time is very good.
The 6600 is shallower vertically, so there is not as much slope increase to the keyboard as you get with the 7800. It has no rubber feet at the back, so tends to slide about on smooth surfaces, but I just stuck 2 on (50p from Maplins) and problem solved.
So far I have been very happy with both of my Cameron Sino / SuperGPS batteries and am happy to recommend both the batteries and the company.
