Reflections on a New Laptop Battery

Now, Linux isn’t exactly known to get you amazing battery life on laptops.  (Yes, when the distro and hardware are specially designed this there are some exceptions.)  However, in my Toshiba Tecra the battery life was getting to be horrendous, getting maybe 20 minutes tops before needing a charge.  So, I went online and ordered a new battery, at twice the original capacity of the old one from  The new one is great.  I can actually use the computer as a laptop.

So now I have thought of the possibilities.  I mean, I could go a lot of places with this computer now, and do whatever.  Type, photo edit, you get the idea…

Maybe, just maybe, this will allow me to reach new levels of productivity in a variety of locations.  Or not, we’ll wait and see.
