Worked great for a while
from Stuart, FL
Comments about Sony Sheet Battery and Adaptor for Sony VAIO VPCSE Series Notebooks:
The sheet battery is slim and light, a great idea. However, as someone mentioned previously, I am now having issues with it charging correctly. If I leave the computer off and let it sit over night, it charges fine. However, if I am using the computer with it plugged in, the battery charge on the sheet battery drops over time, as if I am using the sheet battery for power. The only way to recharge, it seems, is to turn the computer off. As an example, I powered up the computer 45 minutes ago. At that time the battery read 80% (which I have set as a max charge.. it is now 37%. This really needs to be fixed because, otherwise, it is a great idea!

Sony Store shipped item promptly
from Fort McCoy, FL
Holding back one STAR until after the unit has been in use for a number of months. Cannot review how well it works until the custom ordered laptop arrives and time is spent with this unit attached to the Sony S Series laptop .............. An advantage to having this Extended Sheet Battery as the 'EXTRA' battery for a Sony laptop is the battery charge of this unit is used first ........prior to using the internal Sony laptop battery. This arrangement allows an owner to recharge the 'Sheet' battery separately while continuing use of the laptop. Especially handy feature if you're on the move. Leave this Sheet Battery at home charging. The laptop continues it's travels with the owner.. Handy.

a perfect product
a solid slim design easily attaches to bottom of my laptop, helps keep the laptop on for like 20 hours on the road. very useful for me
from Austin, TX
I honestly never take this battery off my laptop. Sure, my laptop is super-slim without it, but it's not too thick with the sheet battery and I can get almost 6 hours on a full charge. On "Speed" setting I get 2.5 hours easily. Definitely get this battery if you have a Vaio S.

Slim form factor. Twice the charge.
from Raleigh, NC
Sony is on to something with the sheet battery. Its slim form factor is unobtrusive and twice the charge for mobile computing is nice. On my old laptop, I had to turn off the system to swap batteries. In some laptops, you have to sacrifice an optical drive to have a 2nd battery. Not so with Sony's sheet battery. I can just snap it on the bottom of my Vaio and go twice as long without AC power. When attached, it looks like it's just the bottom of the laptop. The sheet battery even comes with an adapter so you can connect it directly to AC power to charge without being connected to the laptop. Nice! The way the batteries charge when the sheet battery is connected is quirky. Only one battery can charge at a time. If the sheet battery has less of a charge than the internal battery, as was the case for me, it'll start charging first. In my experience, once the sheet battery charged to 80%, the primary battery started charging again until fully charged. The only problem I experienced with charging is the sheet battery didn't automatically start charging again when the primary hit 100%. I tried disconnecting the AC power for a second, then plugged it back in. That did the trick, and the sheet battery is on its way to 100%. But I took a star off of this review for having to do that.

Worst Installation Description
I bought sony laptop with extended sheet. After installing i am not able to make out if its installed properly. No where they have specified any trouble shooting mechanism. Never expected such poor service from sony. They specify 15hrs its totally misleading

Terrible freebie from Sony
Support is totally incapable of dealing with this new product. After attaching the sheet battery to my computer, the pimary battery stopped charging, and after half an hour and one escalation, support still could not solve my problem. Avoid buying the VPCSE with this sheet battery at all costs!

Everything Sony Promised.
from Oakland University
I ordered two sheet batteries with my new S series computer and I am more than satisfied with them. My S series is remarkably thin and I was worried the extended batteries would add so much weight and bulk I would never want to use them. Fortunatly, they were thin and almost unnoticable when attached. They even looked good on my silver laptop. They are also very easy to attach and deattach. Overall very much worth the money especially if doubling your battery life is important.
