Recently bought an 'NEC i-Select5610 Notebook'. The battery supplied is a BP-8050(s) 11.1v 4400mAH....which when fully charged only lasts a piffling 1.5 hours!!! I've been trying to find a replacement (more powerful) battery online but cant find a single site that deals with NEC i-SElect compatible batts. Anyone else got one of these notebooks and bought a spare batt?...any help welcome.. Paul
The M stands for Mobile I think (as in Pentium 'M' processor).
Someone has mentioned to keep the battery OUT whilst using the laptop plugged in. I have the exact same laptop so can you please clarify - should I keep the battery out whilst using at home? This is my first forage into the world of laptops so I am on a learning curve!
My battery is lasting similar length of time, be aware too that if using processor heavy apps (i.e messing with graphics or complex multiworkbook excel files) then it will go in 1-1.5 hours, if you are just surfing seems to last up to about 2 hours.
