I'm a little confused.  Is a docking station needed or does the notebook just sit on the battery to get its power?

All I want to do is get extended battery life when an AC outlet is not available

No, a docking station is NOT needed.  The extended battery does just what it says.  But, of course you do need to plug it in and charge first.  :-)
