nc10hhuIf $99 isn’t too much to spend for 50% more battery life on your Samsung NC10, there’s a product you need to see. It’s a third-party battery sold through eBay that ships from Batterysquare in Hong Kong at no extra charge. The 9-cell battery is rated at 7800mAh and 11.1V as compared to the stock, 5200mAh 6-cell battery from Samsung. The power-pack that comes with the NC10 is nothing to sneeze it: it’s among the tops in the netbook market right now, with most folks easily enjoying eight hours of run-time.

UMPC Fever did some testing with this third-party product and shows results of over 12 hours. Since run-time is generally scalable between standard and extended batteries, adding 50% more cells should equate to around 50% more run-time. Of course, adding more battery cells means that the battery is bigger than the standard one. From the pics, it appears that like other extended batteries, your netbook will be propped up a bit more in the back. I actually find that helpful in terms of the keyboard angle. Thanks for the tip, Frank!

  1. I got a nine cell Mugen Power battery for my Samsung Q1P last fall, and having it made my Samsung totally fun again.

    I keep a battery widget up onscreen, but only one time did I have to hoard the power, dim the screen, close unnecessary programs, etc. I know Kevin rejected it based on the weight, and it is clumsier, but for my day, it’s liberating to not have to nurse it from one cell to the next.

  2. Hmm at 86.58 watt hours that battery is very close to the capacity of the new 17″ Macbook Pro battery.

  3. Just got my high capacity
    batt for my NC-10 and can’t
    wait to try it out…
