Now all I need is for my Tosh e350 to have a better battery life, or does anybody make a hat mounted wind turbine :rolleyes:

Can you not get extended batteries for Toshibas any more? :confused: Bummer. :(

The e350 Pocket PC has an internal Lithium-Ion battery (3.7V / 1000 mAh) and it seems to need charging every day. I am thinking of making an external emergence charger, you know the type that you stick a PP3 on. I am probably being a bit of a sad techie but I like a idea of plugging it into my TomTom satnav, driving off to some remote location, have an electronic OS map on it of the area and if I need it a survival guide.

Way back when I had an e330 it used to last about a week between recharges with reasonable use. You must really be hammering it to need to charge it so frequently.

Could you get an in-car charger for use with satnav? Don't want it going flat if you get lost or need the survival guide.

roll on hydrogen fuel cells :D

I've converted it into HTML, from the Microsoft .lit format.
I can upload it to a server this weekend, if necessary. But maybe there are HTML and PDF versions where you found the proprietary formats?

There are pdf and html versions out there, It was the PDA versions I had difficulty finding. I will get the URLs and post into the thread. The pdf/html don't render that well on the small screens we have on PDA's.

Chux, The TomTom does charge the battery. I have seen reviews of the e350 with 2 1/2 hours. When my Sony Clie lasted weeks!

The html versions are seem to all be online and split into chapters.

As a moderator I must remind you to keep discussions in English, other than words you don't understand or insults, which are allowable in any language as we all like to understand what the bloke in the taxi has just said.

'HTMLe330TomTomPDF' may be the representation of the Xhosa 'Click' language and I respect those of you who can transcribe it but we prefer English here.


I did recognise the word 'Toshiba'.

Sorry Danzo :) I suppose that computer speek is just as inpenitrable as all the latin speek you use, caveat emptor, haipis corpus, corpus delicti et al. :rolleyes: :D
