OnlyUMPC R2H unboxing. Battery differences clear.

Posted on 27 October 2006, Last updated on 16 March 2019 by have bought/acquired/pilfered an ASUS R2H. What do they think?


I guess we’ll see some testing from them soon but in the meantime, they’ve posted a set of images. On the image below, I’ve taken the liberty of overlaying another images of an R2H. You can see the differences in battery size between the European and U.S. versions.

The U.S. version comes with a 48W/hr battery. (Model No. R2H-BH059T) The European version comes with the 24W/hr battery. (Model No. R2H-BH039T)

The ASUS takes about 12W average drain which is a high-average for a ultra mobile PC and I suspect that including the battery is a strategic move. The competing Q1b and Koreans favorite (I hear from Raon Digital) Vega have already cut the drain figure down to an amazingly low 8W. Thats at least 25% less than the ‘Worlds Most Energy Efficient Notebook‘!

    ASUS gives the US market a better battery to match the Q1b, and now weight is becoming even more of a factor.

    Anyone happen to know what the R2H weighs with the new battery?
