    Question Battery Life

    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

    Re: Battery Life

    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!
