High Capacity

High capacity laptop batteries are available and enable you to have longer run times between charges.

Battery capacities are measured in Ampere Hours

An ampere-hour or amp-hour (symbol Ah , A·h, A h) is a unit of electric charge, with sub-units milliampere-hour (mAh) and milliampere second (mAs). One ampere-hour is equal to 3,600 coulombs (ampere-seconds), the electric charge transferred by a steady current of one ampere for one hour.[1]
The ampere-hour is frequently used in measurements of electrochemical systems such as electroplating and electrical batteries.

A Standard Capacity battery is usually rated at about 4.4Ah, the High Capacity batteries that we offer range from 6.6Ah to 8.8Ah
The actual size depends on the original specification by the Original Manufacture.

In order to increase the storage capacity, the physical size of the battery usually increases.
Eg. If your standard battery is 4.4Ah or a 6 Cell Model, the 8.8Ah version will contain 12 Cells.
(Cell = the individual batteries installed in your laptops battery, these are quite similar to standard AA Batteries we use in our consumer devices.)

To accommodate the extra cells, a High Capacity battery is physically larger and heavier.
You need to take into consideration these two factors when purchasing a high capacity battery.
Being larger, the laptop with a High Capacity battery may no longer fit in your laptop bag if your bag is only designed to accept a Standard Battery.
Also, if you do a lot of travelling (plane), you may need to take into account the extra weight and the effect it will have on your carry-on luggage.

With the above considerations noted most people feel this is a more than acceptable pay off for the increased run time they will get from their laptop.
