Yeah feel free to use all the content i provided as you see fit
I want to keep it all as you posted it.
I started a CF 54 FAQ a while back and this is great info to add to it.
If the moderator moves it, that keeps the good CF 54 info in one place and easy to find.
llooks great but I love my CF-33 better
Quick question about the cf-54 and battery hot swap:
Can anyone confirm that it's okay to "hot swap" the battery: which I gather means you can pull out a depleted battery and put in a charged battery with the machine running...
I have the cf-54 and I would like to hot swap the main (CF-VZSU0PW) battery pack and not damage my computer
I also have the second battery where the DVD would be
I'm not sure if it matters, but I'm running Linux
I have the cf-54 with the AMD Verde graphics card and the 1920x1080 resolution and it's a glorious machine...
Does the CF-54 manual state anything about hot swapping?
This is a clip direct from the official brochure, so I say hot swapping is fine.
I saw that: Was hopping somebody had already gone down this path... and could tell me it's safe
Have an CF-VCBTB3W Battery Charger, that I picked up on Ebay for $45.00!!! and a second... "CF-VZSU0PW," Battery Pack... that I paid full retail for... in the mail...
Based on your post, when I get my equipment... I will give my hot swamping plan a try...
if you don't hear back from me... you'll know my computer is blown... lol.
Thanks for your quick reply btw... much appreciated. I only asked the question, because it's going to irk me plenty if I hurt this machine...
Is the battery you bought a second main battery or is it the optional 2nd battery that goes in the option slot?
The way I read it, the hot swapping is between the main battery and the optional second battery.
Without the optional second battery I don't think you can just hot swap main batteries.
The whole idea of pulling a battery while the computer is on scares me for some reason, but the official brochure does say the computer supports it as you pointed out above
I'll have two main batteries, the sweet CF-VCBTB3W Charger
And I put an optional 2nd battery in the option slot when I first got the computer,
The worst that would happen if the laptop does not support hot swapping (which the CF-54 does support) is the laptop would shut off.
Slight possibility to corrupt a file that was open, but I doubt that will happen with modern OS's.
