Question Extra Battery

So I have an HP dv6449 with just the standard 6-cell battery. I found the extended 12-cell battery on sale for $99.99 when it is normally around $130-$140. Should I get it now at this price? And how much better is the 12-cell, and would it be beneficial to get it especially since I am studying abroad soon?

The 12-cell should give you at least 1.5x or 2x run time.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

All true. As long as you don't mind carrying around a larger and heavier battery, though, that's a great price on it.
