Hi, I have an HP mini 5101 netbook, it's got a 3 cell 14.8 V 1900 mAh battery and I'd like to buy a battery with a larger capacity. Most of the batteries I've found online have a 10.8 or 11.1 V rating and, though the sellers usually say the battery is compatible I've got my doubts. Are they compatible, or would the netbook switch off every now and then?

I would not use one with a lower voltage than the original.
I would buy the battery from HP to be sure you get the correct one.
Can you post the full model number of that mini?
