I recently got an Acer One netbook AOA-150 (bartered deal from CL) and
the only thing wrong is the extensions (prongs) are all broken in the
case. The battery slides horizontally on these-back to front to
Anyone have any suggestions for a fix (other than ducktape!)
I think the latches still work (One is sprung-the other push-lock).
Maybe Velcro (peel&stick) on the top (battery/slot) and separate it
with paper until it's latched?
I haven't gotten the battery to try it...yet!
Turns out...there's a "boss" that extends from the battery into the
compartment that firms-up the mating pretty well! I got the 9 cell
(original was 3). I should have gotten a 6 because this one is
massive! Oh well!

Well at least you got it to work and look decent. 9 cell battery
should give you a little extra time.
Personally I like the idea of pulling the battery when not needed. It
actually does prolong its charge a bit vs. leaving it in all the time.
And at the cost of batteries, I'll take every extra second.
