This will not work with all systems but is an option for those that allow it
That's what I'd ideally like to do, but I have no battery replacement cover.

I really love my laptop.
Joe what cell is your battery ?..that makes a big difference also...
mine is a ..6-cell Lithium-ion battery .. about 2.50 hrs. on Wi-Fi...
2.5 hours on WiFi is perfectly acceptable. That is about what we get. Very good.
