    Where should I look to buy an extra battery (to fill the ODD slot) in my R1F tablet. I decided to not buy it when I got my tablet and am regretting it already. Any suggestions on places to look?

    doing some research, it seems that the modular bay battery is the same price as an extra main battery. since the main batt has a max charge of 5200mAh and the modular has a max charge of 3600mAh. other than the fact that that you have to turn off the laptop to change the battery, wouldn't it be better to just get an extra main batt??
    i could see if the modular batt was less expensive but the only advantage that i see is you don't have to carry another battery around and you don't have to shut off your laptop.
    so what are the advantages of the modular batt??:confused:

    You can plug it into the bay slot and it does not take up extra space in your bag. You don't need to stop working and change batteries when your main battery is dry. You don't need to stop working and change batteries when you want to charge your second battery.

    You could do as you say and it would give you better overall battery life but it comes at the price of convenience.

    another reason i would get a modular over an extra main, is you can charge both a main and a modular at the same time. but it becomes a pain in the ass to charge 2 mains imo, because you have to charge one and then remember to take it out and charge the second.

    on another note, there are a couple other online shops that carry extra modular/mains at a lower price so you may want to shop around.
