$50 battery may double the run-time of the Acer C7 Chromebook...

Quote: "Several of Acer’s inexpensive 11.6 inch notebooks use the same batter. The Acer Aspire One 756, Acer TravelMate B113, and Acer Aspire V5-171 Windows laptops and the Acer C7 Chromebook all have the same 3-cell battery and typically offer between 3 and 4 hours of battery life.

But if you pick up a 3rd party 6-cell battery you can get about twice as much run time."

I understand in the US Acers only offered a 3-cell, 2500mAh battery. But in other countries Acer offer a some of the above laptops with higher-capacity batteries, that were interchangeable.

Quote: "Bear in mind, the extended battery is bigger and heavier than the 3-cell battery, so it’ll make these portable notebooks slightly bulkier. But that may be a small price to pay for the ability to fly from one coast of the US to the other and use your notebook without recharging it."

It is reported that a you can use a Sanyo AL12X32 5000mAh battery in any of these laptops and get around 7 hours of battery life. Reported but not tested by myself,
Sanyo AL12X32 - notebook battery - Li-Ion - 5000 mAh - NP.BTP11.008 - Notebook Batteries - CDW.com

It would be nice to confirm this, if anyone can add more information about this upgrade...
