Just so that there is no confusion, are you talking about battery slice as illustrated below?

If that's the case, I see no reason why it would not. After all, Latitude D6xx run OS X ok when connected to a docking station and so do attached devices (screen, keyboard, mouse, USB devices, etc) + power block.

 

I would not expect any need for dedicated kexts...

Herve, does the slice battery also act as a dock? If so, I could see that being a problem if the e6400/6500 DSDT hasn't been modified as well as the D6xx's DSDT. I know that the Dell Slice batteries use the docking station port on the bottom, so as long as that is functioning in OS X, I don't see it being a problem.

Thanks for that. I was considering purchasing one if it acted as a dock as well, but since it doesnt I'll reconsider a second battery instead.

 

Does anyone know if the dock port works on the e64/500? I've never known anyone with this model to try. :(
