I'm underwhelmed with the new battery life and with
the shelf life of charged new battery, but haven't
timed them and mostly use the machine with AC.

If anyone comes up with an alternative battery
power source, I'd be interested. There used to be some
interesting hacks for the Model100 Tandy that involved
a "lap desk" kind of add-on to the bottom of the computer
full of C cells or something equally available. I've
noticed ads for similar things for the Mac Powerbooks.
I wonder if they might be adaptable to the UL? Fat
chance, I guess...
