A notebook with a 6 cell battery will only
accept a 6 cell battery due to the size of
the battery and size of the notebook. This
means you can not have an 8 cell battery and
expect it to fit in the same battery slot,
as the 8cell would naturally be larger.
Unless, you are fortunate enough to come
across a smaller battery cell that will hold
the same current/voltage and still fit them
in to the OEM battery compartment. You can
however, *UP* the mAh rating on a new 6 cell
battery to giver a longer lasting battery.
Is it possible to have a notebook with a 6-cell battery, but buy another battery, like 9 or 12-cell, and use it in the same computer? Are batteries with more cells physically larger?
