2.5 hours on WiFi is perfectly acceptable. That is about what we get. Very good.
Carl thanks that makes me feel good about mine too.. it's just humming along without the battery... I do wish I had a cover for that space .. but I took a peek.. I really didn't see much to be concerned with.. I have my laptop on a Laptop cooling mat.. with 2 fans.. however... I see no need to turn the fans on.. this keeps it up high enough the fan rarely I need the extra height for my height.. since I'm quite tall.
What settings on the battery are ideal?? I have mine set to NEVER sleep..
when I hit the Shut nDown button I want it to close down totally...on battery or plugged in..
I have my screen about 1/2 bright on the scale.(. for both ).... turn off the display after 15 min... plugged in.and less on the this setting about right ?
I have Mae Lyne's laptop set to never sleep also. We just turn it off when we are finished. She uses her screen on the next to the most dim setting. She has her display turn off after ten minutes. She turns her display off using the function key when she leaves the computer for any reason.

Joe hi.. not a problem at all..
I was just wondering since your battery time was quite long compared to my 6 cell..on Wi-Fi..When I can purchase a long life battery I shall do that.. to use when away from home..
Thanks for your reply.:)
Here are some links for Acer batteries. I don't remember which model Acer you have. YOu can do a Google search for "acer batteries".

Oh, we don't have a battery case cover either. I don't even know if there is one available. It is not important to me.

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.
Manhunter I don't have a cover for my laptop's battery either.... when it's removed.. after taking a good look at it.. I don't see much in the hole to be very concerned with.. maybe I'm blind to what might go wrong in there.
It's mainly dust and debris that I'm worried about; perhaps I'm being overly concerned. I just wish manufacturers would supply a replacement cover in the box -- things like this always annoy me after one has spent good money.
