Laptop battery packs
« on: June 04, 2003, 04:45:03 PM »
Anybody ever use this?
http://www.batteryspace.com/product.asp?0=238&1=287&3=172

Its a 4000mAh battery pack w/tips to fit pratically any laptop that takes 10.4-12v DC plus charger for $35.

Seems like a good workaround for having to buy OEM batteries off ebay or the like...

No but it looks pretty promising. Only thing it does not come with a tip for my laptop. I have a square plug with 3 female sockets. I could probably mod one though. And at $35 way cheaper than the $100 ones they sell for mine (I already have 2 of them). My laptop is a DeskNote P4 2.4ghz.

"The battery pack can run up to 4 hours, depending on models. "

So, with a taping setup......maybe an hour and half.....at best?

My guess is 2 for sure, depending on laptop. I save my 3600mAh internal battery for second sets & it lasts a good two hours.

Screw that for laptop ... I want to use that for my ULN-2! Put two of those suckers in parallel (I think parallel is what I want - gotta check the ol' physics book to be sure) and hook that up to my gear. 2 of those sure beats the hell out of a 10 pound SLA!
Out of the game … for now?

For only 40, I wouldn't mind taking a risk with that battery. But if it does just kinda flop, then that is 40 wasted dollars. Thanks for the site though, I have something to ponder now

I took the risk personally.  After seeing your post , not only did I buy one of these just to give it a try, but they had a special closeout for 2X4000amh 6v's which I am going to use for the mini-me.  What a deal I thought for less than 20 bucks for the 6v's.  It has got to be better an way lighter than running the 12v sla's that are starting to pile up here at my apartment.  Something else I also learned yesterday, ifs for soldering purposes, 25watt soldering is much more efficient than 15w!

At 4000mAh you'd get 2.5-3 hrs from your lappie, depending on load, disk activity, etc.

What kind of satellite?
