Question:What is the main difference between 4 cell and 6 cell batteries? I would presume that 6 cell has greater battery life but I am not sure. Thanks!

Answers:4 Cell Battery: 1.5 to 2.0 hours 6 Cell Battery: 2.5 to 3.0 hours 9 Cell Battery: 3.5 to 4.0 hours The actual battery life will vary depending on the battery size, computer configuration, and how the computer is used.

Question:I have checked all the informational places i know and i can not find anything =S Please help me!!! thank you! =]

Answers:A cell and a battery are really the same thing. Technically, the word 'battery' means a collection of things, so really a 'battery' should be multiple cells. When the word came about, that's what it was. You couldn't just plug into the wall and get 100 or 200 volts, so for anything more than 1 or 2 volts you needed multiple cells, a 'battery' of cells. The French word is 'piles', which also means several things of the same kind. But over the years the meaning of the word changed. Today we use the word 'battery' for one single cell, like an AA battery. A 9-volt battery has several cells in it (6 cells, each one being 1.5 v.), so it really is a 'battery' in the original sense.

Question:I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 and i need a new battery because my current battery (6-cell 65 WHr) is dying. What I would like to know is whether the 9-cell (80WHr) battery and the 6-cell (65 WHr) battery are different sizes. Is one bigger/thicker or do they look alike? Is the 9-cell battery bigger? So if the 9-cell battery is inserted into my notebook, does it bulge or stick out at all or is it the same as the 6-cell (which i currently have)? Thanks in advance! so does it stick out in any dimension whatsoever?? I'm getting conflicting answers. does it bulge out half an inch or is it the same size? (I dont care about weight)

Answers:it just has more umm lets call them batteries. insted of 6 it has 9. no it should be the same size unless it says outherwise
