Acer Aspire 3000 Battery Internals

This is a 4-cell battery; before opening it up, I was under the impression that it was a 3-cell.

The charge controller circuit board has "LIP8198" and "1-867-277-11" markings in the silkscreen, along with a strip of Kapton tape over the top of the PCB.

This is a nice item that I found today at Princess Auto... A grey box hiding on the bottom of a grey shelf. The phrase "Demo Kit" caught my eye, and I had to take a peek inside. I was blown away by the beautiful innards, and I just had to have it.

Well, this was funny for me solely because my laptop's battery lasts less than 60 minutes. So, 60 minutes / 100% = 0.6 minutes (or 36 seconds) for 1%. At 0%, I really don't know how much time is left. Yet I was able to take the pic, and save it in paint before the laptop died.

Funny how those things go.
