I've been using this battery for approximately two weeks now and I've noticed a huge problem with it; Although the capacity claims to be the same as the stock battery, in reality, it lasts nowhere near as long. The battery appears to operate normally until it reaches ~50% after which it suddenly stops giving the computer power and it clicks off (without shutting down properly). After an immediate power on, the battery strangely shows 0%. Total run time is only about 2.5 hours at max. :(
I'm not sure if this is due to the design of the battery, or I have a defective item, but It would be nice to have it replaced.
Shipping packaging, shipping speed and price are good though :/
I got this additional 56 WH battery to give me at least 10 hrs of heavy load runtime. Enough to handle major hub to major hub air travel. Chicago/NY/Atlanta to Korea might stretch it(14hrs) tho. I would have liked to buy the 63WH battery which is used for the 1015 PEM, but ASUs could not technically explain why a 63WH battery (which incidentally physically fits the 1015PN)could not work with the 1015PN. I coldnt contact the design engneers to get a good explaination. My questions fell on "It wasnt designed for the PN" answer, not why. Basically the 63WH battery has a higher open circuit voltage than the 56WH battery.
Any how, delivery was fast, and actually beat the projected delivery estimate. Outstanding!
Worked perfectly. Almost exact replacement(same size and shape and fitment) battery for my heavily used and abused Eee PC Seashell series netbook. This battery has 200 more mAh of battery capacity. Hopefully this will boost my 11 hour run time to 12 hours. Time will tell. So far it has lasted a 5 day work week with 10 hours of battery usage. I recharge it when I get home every day.
