I've been stuck in a few places where I've needed extended runtime from my G73JW beyond what the internal battery is capable of providing. I was aware of the pitfalls of a gaming laptop going in, so I'm not surprised by that. What I'm looking for is a good quality external battery for my laptop that I can slip in my case and keep with me or an extended battery to replace the factory one just in case I need to go 2 or 3 hours without connecting to the mains.

So 1) Does Asus make an extended battery for the G73's?

or 2) Have any of you guys used any external batteries (i.e. ones that connect through the power connector), and what kind of experience did you have with them?

I'd prefer to have uninterrupted usage, but if I need to do a battery swap now and then I can live with it.

Thanks!
