That would be a good assumption.

When the batteries in the T60/XP laptop are dead (2hrs left) then I can briefly
switch to the T540p/Win7 latptop. I probably have about 3hrs on that one. Then
I can go for about 8 hrs on the Blackberry and Telegram (thank you Stas!Wink on
the mobile link. I have one charged spare for the BB (.: add another 10 hours).
But I don't have to be "on" all the time. I'll probably spread it out - as I
will mostly likely spend a lot of time sleeping or trying to stay warm under
the covers. :/

I plan to ditch into town (and have a nice warm car ride) for a few minutes)
and check up on things at the shop. But then I may as well come home if there
is no hydro servicing the downtown.
