    Thanks for your help.

    Would you mind telling me whether the code I posted corresponds to the 4 or 6 cell?


    Regards.

    No, the tx series can only use the above pictured 4, 6 & 8 cell batteries.

    tilting machine up is a bit useful cos then u dont have to look directly down when in tablet mode.

    Good day! Would it be possible for you to test the battery life and the weight of those batteries?
    I am (and i guess most of us are) interested in in internet-on surfing, writing, checking email etc battery life.
    or lets say - just idle and a movie from a dvd.

    Thanks
    Andrew

    I am also using the 8 cell battery and I am very glad of the choice made. The 8 cell rises the base up on the back, allowing for more comfortable typing when in laptop form and easier reading when in tablet.

    Although it does add a bit of weight on it (imagine 2 extra AA batteries), it makes almost no difference when you are carrying it.

    With the additional battery life and ease of use, I think the tiny extra weight isn't something I care at atll.

    Does anyone know somewhere that sells these 3 different batteries in the UK for a reasonable price? I seem to remember seeing the 6 cell on the HP website for about £79 which seems quite excessive to me.

    I would ideally like one of each size, for different situations, sometimes where weight is the issue, sometimes where endurance is the issue, so it would be good if there was somewhere cheaper to buy them.

    I do not know if that 12 Cell Battery is compatible, BUT, I have seen reference to a HP Official 12 Cell in this PDF Datasheet for the TX2510ca:
    http://h20386.www2.hp.com/CanadaStore/images/tx2510ca.pdf

    In the option accessories section it lists:
    HP 12-cell Li-Ion Replacement Battery- EV089AA

    So this may mean it is possible to get one, as it lists a part number.
