9-Cell Battery

PostedFebruary 24, 2011
Yes, I would recommend this product
Love the longer battery power. Just be aware that the battery is physically larger and will extend slightly (1") beyond the face of the laptop. Doesn't bother me. Must follow directions for initial charges and since directions don't come with battery, you can search Dell.com to retrieve the directions. Minimal weight difference vs. 6-cell.
Pros:business, Travel

Good performance, adds bulk

PostedApril 2, 2009
Yes, I would recommend this product
Pros:* Does the job: lasts as long enough for a cross country flight, morning at cafe (windows usually estimates 4-5 hours before dimming screen, turning wi-fi off) * Feels solid
Cons:Adds 1.25" in front of laptop and weight; after a few weeks of routinely carrying it home and on planes these are not huge problems in my experience

You want long term run time? Look no further!

PostedMarch 17, 2008
Yes, I would recommend this product
Each battery has a place -- even the 4-cell is good for short remote needs.
The 9-cell's place is for users traveling or needing all day unplugged usage for whatever reason. This puppy can get through a full work day if I run it in balanced or power saver mode.
Get this battery for full day use and get the 6-cell for everyday use.
Pay the extra up front to get multiple batteries with your laptop! The price jumps considerably if you buy them later as an upgrade.
Pros:Crazy good run time! The extended form factor makes a nice wrist rest on the laptop. If you have to carry a bulkier battery, might as well get a nice feature out of it!
Cons:Heaviest and bulkiest battery, great for trips but the laptop is not really "ultraportable" with the 9-cell.

Inconvenient size

PostedMay 22, 2007
Yes, I would recommend this product
Pros:The battery life is excellent and convenient.
Cons:The size of the battery is not convenient. Dell needs to be more explicit when describing weight and size of batteries. D420's size and weight are primary concerns for people purchasing a computer of this size.

Extra time but ...

PostedMarch 13, 2007
Yes, I would recommend this product
Make it easier to invision what the purchaser's final product will look like.
Pros:The 9-Cell battery definitely adds extra time away from the annoying power socket.
Cons:The web site from which I ordered the laptop with this option did not indicate that the 9-cell option would add 1.25" in width to the unit! It adds considerably to its bulk and limits where it will fit.
