Bargain battery hunter

Ok, I admit that I love a bargain. As most of you know, my T43 laptop was stolen from my car and I replaced it with an X61, which came with a small batter that lasts only 2.5-3 hours. The bigger battery is normally $170, but I took a chance ordering an “open box” customer return from Newegg.com for $100, and it turns out it’s never actually been opened (tape inside was uncut) and the battery had 0 cycles on it.

The new battery should give me about 6 hours of working time, and I can always bring along both batteries.
