Re: Laptop needs to last all day. External battery docks???

One thing to consider is life cycle of the batteries. My experience in corporate laptop batteries is that over time, they get less and less capacity.

Brand new, my Sandybridge based HP Elitebook could get 6 hours on the standard battery. Put the Slice battery underneath it and I could get 9 hours easy.

6 months later of regular use, it was down to 6 or maybe 7 hours.
