Bettery, sorry Battery
« on: September 16, 2008, 03:08:34 PM »
After taking a look at the "bettery" in my Onet I'm left wondering if it is replaceable or upgradeable, the connectors are soldered onto one of the PCBs which is a bit disappointing.
Also does anyone know the voltage or type of bettery it is?

It says on the link below it's a 2100mAH/7.4V Li-ion 9V DC, which is a bit confusing. I think they mean that the bettery is 7.4v but you can also plug a 9v DC wall-wart into the machine to power it.

Elonex have offered to suply a replacement for my faulty battery.
Having checked my one is attached by a small connector - it is not soldered to the board?

the connector should just pull away (i found a pair of tweezers helps)
the connector will only go back one way

Ah my bad, only managed to have a quick look at it before I had to go. So it is possible to replace it or exchange it for a larger one?

I am also being sent a replacement battery. Do you undo every single screw on the underside and remove the entire underside of the laptop or is there a battery section that I haven't found?

If you have an Elonex OneT then on the underside, I can't believe you can't notice an oblong 'door like' panel with two screws. You only need to unscrew these and the battery is inside.

It is a shame there is no exterior button to show the battery life.

sometimes the main power switch takes a few seconds to come on and I can never tell if the battery is dead or not.
