So I've been reading around and noticed that people seem to be complaining that the Pangolin Performance has a very short battery life. Do you guys expect to release a battery with more capacity anytime soon? Before May?

Thanks!

"Do you guys ..."

That question you have to ask the manufacturer of the machine.

Manufacturer has a 9 cell available, I don't know the details of why system76 only offers a 6 cell.

We are not aware of a 9-cell available for the Pangolin. I've heard a similar claim before... turned out to be for a different computer model.

Probably not.

From what I can read through the sticker on the back of my Pangolin (which I only received within last month).

If this isn't the model for the Pangolin, I'd like to know what I was shipped :)

I see what you're talking about. Despite that 9-cell being on the spec sheet, it currently is unavailable. We're also not sure when/if it will become available.

Doh, I add my voice to the masses, inform Clevo that we want 9 cells!

I don't have a Pangolin but just out of curiousity I sent an email to Clevo & got a response asking for the serial number.

I did that too, and they said to contact System76. Let's see what they tell you :D

We've not seen these batteries made available anywhere. I couldn't even vouch that they actually exist apart from some spec sheet somewhere.

We've made it very clear that we need them, and will keep making the calls.
