IBM T43p Battery Life

    I have a T43p with the extended battery pack and I am supposed to get 5.5
    hours of battery. I know that is with all the settings turned down and
    doing absolutly nothing and therefore I usually get about 4-5 hours with
    actually doing stuff. I am interested in upgrading my RAM from 512MB to
    1.5 GB by adding a 1 GB stick in the empty memory slot. Does anyone know
    how much this will effect my battery life? I know it is going to decrease
    it some but if it is too drastic then I am not going to get the additional
    memory.

    Thanks,
    AC

    If you loose 15 min I'd be surprised. Should be 5-10 min difference.
