stick a mains adaptor in it, simples
larger battery? 6 cell 9 cell blahdy blah
no i want to know if there is a way of increasing battery life with the existing 6 cell
have you googled a software solution?
i googled it but could not find anything good
Turn screen brightness down, alter power settings so it shuts the power down to the screen/hard driver sooner when idle, etc.

What OS are you using? I have a N130 and Windows 7 lasts 6-7 hours compared with 5-6 on XP.
using xp
New wireless card (Intel 5300 / 535) & New hard drive (5k500.b 500GB drive uses less power) would probably nock 2w off the power consumption - install BattStatt to check yours.
whats battsatt
An application that will tell you how much power your laptop is using (only works off the mains).

Got my NC10 running ~7w idling in Windows 7 with a new HDD and WiFi card.
