My 6-cell is reducing its capacity and I suppose I'll need a new one in a few time.

The accessory is THIS one.

Considering I've found one of these bases at a street price of 50 euro do You consider it could be a good option to have as much ad possibile in terms of portability and autonomy ?

Where do you find these for 50 bucks?

Anyway: with normal prices it's cheaper to get more 9-cell batteries, although swapping them might be more hassle.

But considering this price... could it be considered a good purchase ?

Can It really permit to obtain a autonomy of ~ 8 hours ?

Depending on what you're doing with it: yeah; definitely.

Yeah, 50 bucks is a great price. I still don't know where you get them for that price. Is it incl. or excl. VAT?

I can buy it from a friend that has bought it for a mistake (A stupid mistake...)

But I'm not so sure that it can be a valid alternative to have a second (6cell or 9cell) battery.
:?
