Upgrading my laptop mobility and Kindle.

I purchased a replacement battery for my laptop, that contains 9, rather than 6 Li-ion cells.  Battery life now appears to be 5+ hours, versus 3 with the original battery.  I also purchased a power supply that uses my automobile cigarette lighter.  This means my daughter and granddaughter can watch movies while we are traveling.  I can let my wife drive and I can work on projects while we're on trips.  (This will not really happen.  I drive, my wife sleeps.  Get used to it, get over it!)

Since adoping Kindle for PC, I am reading a lot more before bed. Having a longer battery life is a real Godsend for me.  Instead of having a mile high stack of books on my night stand, I disconnect my laptop and haul it to bed.  I have access to 25 books without the clutter.  Hopefully I'll have a Kindle Fire by Christmas and the bedtime load will be even lighter.

Life is good!

This blog represents my personal hobby, observations and views. It does not represent the views of my employer, clients, especially my wife, children, in-laws, clergy, the dog, the cat or my daughter's horse. In fact, I am not even sure it represents my views when I take the time to reread postings.  So, take most of what I say with a grain of salt.
