Does a mobile broadband card take a lot of power from the laptop battery?

    Not really. A mobile broadband card should only drain about 10% of your battery life, so on a three hour battery it will cost you about 18 minutes. But be careful, because doing things like running a cd/dvd drive will have a far greater impact on your battery life. However, an external wireless card is no worse than an integrated one in terms of power drain.

    Hope this helped!
