Popular products get piles of accessories and Eee PC is very popular..
One of the most important feature on mobile computer is battery life, so these 3rd party 6 cell batteries are coming to rescue users in need... as Asus is not yet shipping the original ones.
This one is from Mugen and it should be available in April.
It is 7,800 mAh 6 cell so it should give 5.5 to 6 hours of good use.
It looks very nice as it doesn't extend much.
Size: 45 x 138 x 38mm
This one is from Cameron Sino [ available from Ebay ] but that design is not that nice..
It is 6600 mAh 6 cell giving some 5 hours of mobility.
Size: 55 x 35 x 138mm
And last but not least, the original Asus 6 cell with 7800 mAh capacity. No confirmed info about shipping time..
Size: 55 x 40 x 138mm
There is also 4 cell batteries from these companies, but I wouldn't buy the 4400 mAh versions as they give only about 2.5 to 3 hours of use..
We should see more 3rd party batteries soon as there is a clear demand for them.
One thing to know: all these batteries will work on coming Eee PC 900 too ( I tested )
I just got the Cameron Sino one, so I will make a video review of it now..
UPDATE: there is also 8 cell 10400mAh battery but i think that's overkill! Thanks JDTucson
