Question about Sharp Actius AL27 Notebook
There was a post I read on a notebook forum site that deals with a BIOS problem with the Sharp Actius PCAL27 from a guy named fixyourlaptop AT yahoo DOT com. He stated that he was a Sharp tech, and that the main problem with the AL27 is not the battery, but the BIOS.
There is apparently an issue with these BIOS that causes the power usage of the battery to show incorrectly. I purchased my laptop over three years ago, and just recently updated the BIOS sent me by this fellow, and my laptop battery discharges properly. It still only has about an hour of life but this is the first time it ever worked right.
You can email him for the fix at the above address. Just put in the subject line SHARP LAPTOP AL27 BIOS FIX. He is legit and the fix worked like a charm.
If you want to read his post just do a search for the above (properly formatted) email address on google.

Battery can be bought directly from the manufacturer by contacting C Y at email@example.com. I did, exact replacement, white plastic cover. Tell him Bruce sent you.

Verizon is about the only place you can get the authentic RIM product and matching door. Most other sites are out of stock and even when they are in stock they have the black battery door which looks like crap. http://www.batteryfast.co.uk
I tested this camera for a client. I didn’t have the light running for more than 15 minutes. The battery lasted approximately 6 hours before recharging. The LCD, however, had a few dead pixels - never saw this before. Tried returning for exchange and had to put up quite a fight. Anyone else seen this? http://www.batteryfast.com

Battery Refill is a good option. I have used them and they have done a great job with my laptop batteries. You can also get this battery from Sharp directly by paying a premium (more than $250.00).
