I was told by a colleague after a visit to Staples that someone makes a laptop with a 15 hour battery life! Unfortunately, he could not remember the name. Seems a bit far fetched or am I out of touch. Can anyone throw any light on this?
"Batteries: All batteries are not created equally. Generally you get what you pay for. If battery life is important to you, spend the extra money. If it?s really important to you, you can spend quite a lot. For $399 you can get a 15-hour battery pack for many Toshiba and HP notebooks. In the $150 range you can buy re-chargers that re-juice two batteries at once."
"...Electrofuel PowerPad battery from IBM. It can runs an IBM ThinkPad 560 Pentium MMX-233 notebook for 15 hours"
