More power for Kodama

The battery of Kodama, my EEE 900, is in pretty bad shape. The battery was quite anemic to begin with, so we were always pretty much tethered to the power cord anyway. And with the constant cycle of charging abit, discharging a bit and then recharing again -- the battery doesn't hold much charge anymore. I'm trying to re-vitalise the battery by running a few cycles of completely discharging it and then recharging completely, but I don't think it'll ever get to the old level.
And I want to use Kodama more and more as a laptop (which means: untethered to a power cord), so today I took the plunge and ordered a replacement battery. The 'normal' battery is only 4400 mAh, and the one I ordered is 10400 mAh! So that should mean a few more hours of using Kodama. I'm looking forward to that.

The only drawback is that the battery is much larger. But I can live with that.
