A third-party 9-cell battery has been released for the Acer Aspire One A150 and early indications are that it is a big improvement over the 6-cell battery. The battery rated at 7800 mAh delivered 6 hours of viewing time when watching a DVD and nine hours when just using it for chat, MSOffice, listening to music and web browsing.
However, this does come at a cost as the 9-cell battery is significantly larger and bulkier than the 6-cell one (pictures after the jump). The original battery weighed 176 grams whilst the 9-cell weighs 400 grams. If you don’t mind the extra bulk and weight to the Aspire One than it may be worth trying to track one of these down.
