The notebook’s battery has a standard size:

But it is not so very standard when it comes to its capacity:

I say, it is kind of a fake battery. It looks like a normal battery, but its weight is that of a plastic copy. The manufacturer seems to have just thrown half the elements away to reduce the cost which is a very arguable solution. The notebook won’t last long on such an accumulator. It is more like an integrated UPS rather than a battery that would allow you to work autonomously. This whole series of notebooks from Acer uses the same power adapter:

And its parameters are typical enough:

Besides this power adapter, the accessories to the Aspire 3003NLC include only a couple of CDs with software.

The overall impression is negative, I should confess. The notebook doesn’t deserve your attention. Its case is flimsy, its battery has a reduced capacity, its screen is mediocre, and its size and weight are big – and there is nothing to compensate for all these deficiencies with. The performance tests (see at the end of the review) are going to be an opportunity for the Aspire 3003NLC to gain some points, yet I doubt it is worth your money even if its performance proves to be high. The manufacturer just overdid it with the cost-cutting in this particular case.
