My Toshiba M200's battery life has dropped drastically, I think it's at the end of it's legs already. With less than an hour's worth of battery life, it just isn't all that useful without a power plug anymore. And since Toshiba wasn't exactly helpful in wanting to provide me with a new one so I had to improvise.
It was PC Fair last weekend and I knew about a stall that sold external battery packs that would always be there and so... behold the glory of my slab of Lithium Ion power!
On the sticker of the slab it says this thing is good for 133WHrs, my notebook's own battery charger has a maximum rating of 60W (15V*4A). If my current draw is at maximum I should get about 2 hours of juice from the slab, but since I'll just throttle the power usage I should be able to get more from it. As an added bonus, it also comes with a USB port which you can plug in your typical USB charge cables for 5V goodness.
One complaint though, the power cable which connects the notebook to the battery is just too damn short. I'm gonna have to hack up a longer one. Also... The damn thing weighs 1.3kgs.
