    Got a couple new old stock batteries that act odd.
    What is available to test them?
    Preferably it will test both batteries in the laptop as the unit has both installed.

    I will investigate those ideas. Will they test the batteries or just report power levels?

    What I am hoping for is a benchmark type of test that also records the battery statistics as the system is run at maximum for a period.
    The batteries don't act strange until a high constant load is put on them. Such as loading Windows 7 or other large software packages.

    Maybe I need 2 bits of software. One to benchmark the system and one to record battery levels, temperatures, etc as the system is benchmarked.

    "Enchanted SpeedStep"

    So it magically gave the Atom SpeedShift Turbo Boost?
