Move over Apple MacBook, word’s come out that the Dell Adamo does not have an easily swappable battery.
We’re all collectively lusting after the form-conscious Dell Adamo. It’s sleek, looks well-built, and something we’d love to have with us while we’re mobile -- unless if battery life is an factor.
Pocket-lint reports that the Dell Adamo does not have an easily removable battery, meaning that users who are looking for unplugged time beyond a single pack will be out of luck.
While a swappable battery is commonplace on electronics, there’s been a recent trend of building the power system integrated as part of the internals. Apple’s MacBook Air has an integrated battery, likely to facilitate the slim form factor. The new MacBook Pro 17-inch also does away with the swappable battery for the sake of a larger pack to extend uptime.
Dell has yet to explain the Adamo’s battery design, but we figure that it is done for reasons similar to Apple’s on the MacBooks. We’ll keep you posted as soon as Dell spills on the replacement and service costs.
