5.0 out of 5 stars Turns the AspireOne into a seriously useful piece of kit, 25 Nov 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cameron Sino - (Electronics)
Ultra-portable devices like the AspireOne absolutely beg for lengthy runtimes away from an AC adapter, and the 2200mAh battery supplied as standard with most Aspires simply doesn't cut it with its 2 (3 if you're careful) runtime. This 6600mAh monster changes all of that, with runtimes in the 6-8 hour region you can now take your Aspire off charge first thing in the morning without worrying that it'll die on you halfway through the day unless you lug the adapter around with you.

So yes, as the other reviews and the photos suggest, it's big. If the aesthetics of the Aspire particulary appeal to you, then you may be put off by having a big lumpy battery pack hanging off the back like a slightly poorly colour/texture-matched bulbous growth. On the other hand, if you regard your Aspire as a tool, then you may find yourself really growing to love the way the battery pack acts both as an angled keyboard rest and a handgrip - holding the Aspire in one hand whilst you type/mouse away with the other hand is now quite comfortable and secure.

Since getting this battery, my Aspire has been turned from being a cute little toy into a serious mobile workhorse I can take out for the day and actually *use* without wondering when the low battery warnings would start to pop up. Sure, it'd be nice if it could be a bit lighter and if the outer casing was a better match for the colour/texture of my blue Aspire, but these are just nit-picks. This battery does exactly what it sets out to do, significantly extend the runtime of your Aspire, and if that's what you need, then you need one of these batteries.

I agree totally with the above brilliant review. It would have been better I think if the battery was black like the original, rather than blue though. I have seen over 9 hours showing on my battery meter with the machine in idle mode. My A150 is a 120GB HDD and 1 GHz of RAM bought from Amazon too. Origianlly with Limpus Lite, but I immediately put XP on it and I have to say I am mighty impressed with the combination of the A150 and 9 cell battery!
