Laptop batt question?
« on: October 12, 2003, 07:23:57 PM »
So i dug up this thread in the computer recording forum.

http://www.taperssection.com/yabbse/index.php?board=5;action=display;threadid=3234;start=0

& wanted to see if anyone tried this batt out?
http://www.batteryspace.com/product.asp?0=238&1=287&3=172


My laptop has an internal 11.1v 5400mah now. But the computer is 3 years old & the battery has no memory left. In record mode it lasts around 35 minutes.

I know a valance is the way to go. But I need a cheep fix for the moment.

Thanks
Jeff

It will work with most lappy's although you may want to get two of them and split at setbreak!

I can set my screen to turn off after so many minutes is this the same as y'all say closing the lid.

I've never noticed any effect from opening/closing the lid on my laptop during shows... Its essentially the same as power management turning off the lcd panel.
Governor Jim McGreevey was equally disturbed about the upcoming population increase. "New Jersey cannot support all of these wookies," he said. "For starters, we don't have nearly enough kindbud. At best, we can muster up a Q.P. of some beasties, but we've not a dime-bag more."

but you should always test your setup in a controlled environment before going in the field.... learned the hard way.

Also during testing the screen turned off did not effect the music.

Damn. The 5ah was the biggest anyone had. Do you think this will last 5 hours while taping?

The package say it will last 5 hours. Or watch 2 DVD's in a row with power to spare.  but if Jon has the 10ah & it lasts 5 hours or a little more it makes me wonder?

Anyone have the 5Ah?

there should be a setting that closing the lid "does nothing"...otherwise it may send you into standby mode or shut off the pc or shut off the HD depending on how it's set.  it should automatically shut off the screen.

i got the 299$ 10ah model direct from valence bc i heard that the 5ah only gives like 2-3hrs with lid open. i prefer to have my lid open during recording, but thats personal.

I ran 2 hours of taping & an hour on last night & Kept the screen on. Looks like I have 40% power left on the valance.

Panic will be the true test.
