eo: Extended Battery first test results

Jeffrey Graebner has just posted the results of his tests using the just started to be shipped eo V7110 Extended Battery from TabletKiosk.

I ran a test against my new eo v7110 extended battery using Battery Eater Pro. During this test, it measured a minimum battery life of 3:05:23. In my earlier test against the standard battery, the same test recorded a minimum battery life of 1:35:02....

...It is very important to keep in mind that the standard test with Battery Eater Pro is designed to stress the system as much as possible with a goal of identifying a minimum battery life. Both tests were also run with wi-fi and Bluetooth active and with the screen at 50% brightness. Most of the time, the battery is going to last quite a bit longer during real world use. I frequently have seen a battery life of over 2 hours with the standard battery, which means that the extended battery is likely to often last for 4 hours or longer.


The expected result for a Battery with 6 cells, exactly the double of cells than what we have in the Standard Battery. With BT OFF, WiFi ON (Browsing) and 25% of Brightness this battery should last around 4 hours. I have to add that we have another Extended Battery coming soon made by UNIFIRM. This battery will have 9 cells so the battery life will be in the range of 4.5 to 6.5 hours. Off course, with this battery by UNIFIRM the eo v7110 will look a little bit bigger and heavier than with this 6 cell battery from TabletKiosk.
