Not being a PB owner yet, Im not sure if there would be a way to add more battery life to a PB. MY ideal PB would be the new 1.5Ghz 15inch PB, but cash is a little tight for a bit, so sometime in 04 or 05 hopefully.
Currently Im using an Ibm laptop which is slowly dying, but I like the fact I can put another battery in the ultrabay for more time. Do any 3rd party companies offer one of those "attach on the bottom" batteries which I remember seeing for certain non-apple models? Maybe just one which attached into the power connector in the back. 1/4inch thickness would probably allow one to get another hour or so of battery life.
Once I have a new PB, Ill check into it, I do video editing with FCP and DVDS2, so Id need it in certain cases, airport, train, etc...
Cool! Well, for $190, thats a doozy. I think I'd probably rig something up, maybe with a slew of rechargable 1.25v AA batteries. Ill have to look into Vah's to see what kind of times Id need, but looks cool!
The nCharge sounds like a great product, I went to my local BestBuy and looked at one after hearing about them and would love to get one, just need the $$$. Odd things is though is that they do not recommend sitting your Laptop on top of them, but everyone does.
I don't think the technology is quite there yet to make this work. Fuel cell or otherwise. It's in prototype stage. And all the other mods make the powerbooks too big to be practical. Someday, I can only imagine. Like Doc Brown putting garbage in the Delorean
