    DV6 laptop battery....what cell?

    my laptop is lasting about half hour of the charger...becoming a real pain! i think its because i always leave it on standby lol either way im looking into a new battery the one i currently have is a 6cell, the one im looking at is a 12 cell, how much difference would that make? i use the laptop to game alot aswell, So basically i need to know what sort of battery i need to go for that has long life thanks!

    ...twice the size then?

    edit: 4400mAh now - 8800mAh then.. so actually yes. it will last twice as long since it has twice the capacity

    Laptop batteries capacity is rated in Watt/Hours i.e. Capacity: 55 Wh, so go with one that gives you the best capacity.

    Bigger is better.

    As any layman will tell you...

    Ah - Amp hours has a unit of coulombs, Q i.e charge.

    Wh - Watt hours has a unit of Joules , J i.e energy.
