Yes.

ASUS 8-Cell Laptop Battery for UL30, UL80, and UL50: Amazon.ca: Electronics

The JT is/was out already. Sold out and Discontinued. It was a hot seller for its price point.

Edit: Which 12 Cell did you grab and how much was it? I saw a couple on Ebay I had my eyes on ($50ish?), but wasnt sure of the manufacturer, and didnt want to grab some no-name junk 12 cell.

To be honest, the VT is better then the JT model anyways. At least for battery life, which I would think if you want the UL30, that is what you're after otherwise you'd go to another model.

Laptops are usually designed with a set number of 'sales' in mind. This is because laptop specifications and hardware changes fairly regularly in the industry and manufacturers dont want to get stuck with leftover 'old' stock of laptops.

Thus when they create 30k units, that is normally all they will ever make of that brand. Once those 30k sell out, that is it for that model. The company may release a 'new' variation (Tagging a new A1 revision onto it, etc) but something usually changes.
