MSI Wind 9-Cell Battery Pictures, We Wait With Open Arms

A few things set the netbooks of today apart from one another and battery life is one of them. Most netbooks from the likes of Lenovo, Acer and Dell come standard with 3-cell or 4-cell batteries that only provide 3 hours of battery life max, usually far less than that. Six-cell batteries, offered only by ASUS, MSI and Acer at this point,  have been the perfect solution since they can offer up to six hours of juice. That is until now. According to  EeePCNews.de, MSI is working on a 9-cell battery. Pictures sent to the German blog by a battery manufacturer indicate that a 9-cell Wind battery is in the works. Those extra cells could offer up to 9 or 10 hours of run time on the popular netbook. We will be here waiting patiently for a release date and price. More pictures of the extended battery are below.

    This is a battery that is being developed by Fattafa under the Mugen name. There is an ongoing discussion in the msiwind.net forums on this battery and these pictures appear to be the same ones posted there.
