Hey folks - I'm pretty new to the Zaurus arena but assume getting less than 45 minutes from a stock batter fully charged is not normal.

Does anyone know of a high-capacity battery available for the SL-5500 - I see some 1100Mah batteries on eBay (as mentioned here in another topic) but is there anything with a high-capacity???

I'd love to get some info from those of you who have the knowledge before I purchase a new battery!

Thanks for your assistance.

I've had a SL-5500 for a couple years (also have a C1000).
Anyway, I average about an hour on the 5500 using a wireless card and max brightness.
The original battery BL06 is 850Mah so 1100 should be a little better (how much, who knows).
The SL-5500 is a terrible power consumption hog.

Since I got my C1000, I've been very amazed with its power consumption.
It has a BL11 battery which is 1800Mah.
I can run it for several hours on a charge using wireless off and on and with brightness at next to the lowest level.

This battery is a lot thicker than the 5500 battery, but I've read (can't remember where offhand) that you can get a special battery cover to accomodate that type battery on a 5500.
You may or may not want to do that because then the z wouldn't lay level.

Hope this helps you some.
