Yea look up the LG Viper batteries on ebay, they are 1900 mah instead of 1500.

Even the LG Motion comes with a 1700 mah.

I can confirm the LG Viper/LG Lucid OEM battery... Don't get the Chinese ones (IE Feipusi, which oddly is the best of the slim Chinese batteries, but still sucks), those have been confirmed as crap on this very subforum. I have the OEM LG Lucid battery, I ordered it off of Amazon for $10 with shipping included. Best decision I have made in a while.

Not with a "Slim Extended" battery, Slim Extended batteries are supposed to be higher capacity without making the phone fatter.

Here you go, bought it from "Orion Gadgets". They shipped it out quickly to me =D


Also as a bonus, I have found a link to the post about the fake Chinese extended batteries with conclusive testing. Someone who is a moderator should sticky that, it is a very useful thread.

Yup the stock BL-44JN is 1500mah...

The BL-44JS is between 1650~1700mah, and IMO it is what the LG Connect should of came with from the very start. Keep in mind, if it blows up your phone I am not responsible lol... The BL-44JS battery is unofficially, and off the record, compatible with the Connect. Talk to any LG customer service rep, and they will tell you it isnt compatible.

your replying to a guy that asked if you bought the 1650 battery but you confirmed with the guy that said it was 1900... So which one did you get, 1650 or 1900?

Never confirmed it was the OEM LG BL-44JS battery was 1900mah. I replied to two people there though. Justinjoy asked me for a link to the 1650~1700mah one, the BL-44JS that I bought. The other guy asked if slim extended batteries fit in phones without a fatter cover.


I have purchased the Feipusi 1900mah in the past... and regretted it... see link to conclusive testing with Chinese Slim Extended batteries. The OEM LG BL-44JS 1650~1700 lasts longer then the Feipusi 1900. But that is way in the past. As a bonus I posted that link to warn people concidering those Chinese fake slim extended batteries.

Pretty much, unless someone reports another LG OEM battery works and fits with our phone.

There is a LG OEM fat extended battery that may work as well. But I am unsure if truely does fit. If it does, one would just have to macgyver a back cover to make it work. I will probably test it when I have $40 to blow...

EDIT: jpizle is reporting the LG Motion's battery works with the connect as well. This appears to be a BL-44JH with 1650~1700mah capacity, like the BL-44JS with same exact stated capacity that I purchased.

Nice. Keep me updated on this battery and how long its lasting. ABout the overheating thing tho, since I flashed my phone to Number Two with blitzkrieg and I can run this overclocked at 1.4ghz with no heat issues at all. Just sucks cuz whether I have it underclocked or overclocked, it still drains the same.

I brought this one from amazon. Amazon.com: OEM New LG Lucid VS840 Standerd Battery BL-44JS 1650MAH Verizon: Cell Phones & Accessories
It fits but I was experiencing overheating and by 12 noon it would be down to 30 %. I let it die when I first got it and then charge it up to 100%. The overheating started the next day.

This is the battery I got, I am not experiencing any of this though...

What Rom are you using, are you overclocking your phone? What apps are running in the back ground?

I know BOC has, and Black Plague had (not sure if still has) a broken overclock, which is stuck at 1.5ghz if you do not either edit the file to fix it or delete the file altogether. When I was using those roms, I had horrendous battery life till I edited the file, oh and overheats.

Stock according to SetCPU is 1188MHz, when I fixed the file I "gently" overclocked it to 1280ish MHz. Currently I am using Number Two, and get great battery life. Since I use that rom now, I no longer overclock (nor do I have the urge to overclock).

I am afraid that is not a LG branded battery, that is a Chinese replacement. I wouldn't trust it, as they generally lie about what capacity they really have.

its been stated before but anything but oem batteries are less than stated capacity. I've been waiting a while for something a bit better but I finally decided to get the 1650 mAh battery from the lucid.

So is it worth getting the 1800 mAh battery for the motion to use it on my connect (the brand)

No that is not a OEM battery. OEM mean Original Equipment Manufacturer. The OEM is LG themselves... "Onite" does not make batteries for LG. An OEM battery for LG Lucid or LG Motion is going to be 1650~1700mah...

If you see a seller trying to push a "OEM" that is higher then that, it is probably going to be a fake. And is most likely going to be a Chinese replacement battery. As I stated before, those are crap. You would be better off with your stock battery.

I think this is what I might get I know its for lg motion but it fits for connect tried the original battery for the motion on my lg connect and it works
Don't get that one! Read the motion forums!

I picked up one of the Gold batteries off ebay, comes from UK I believe. 2650amh. I noticed a huge increase. I stream tunein radio thru a bluetooth and couldn't make it even 3hours. Now I can make it 4 hours easy. Not alot, but at least I have some juice left when my radio program is over.

I'm thinking that its not working right because it may not b compatible with the connect as I believe that the only battery's that work in the connect r the viper, lucid, and the motion, from what I've read on this forum not just this thread. I've never heard of an optmius batt. working in our phones. I know for a fact that the motion works perfectly, as I had to barrow my kids batt. out of her lg motion (that Santa got her and didn't get me my sgs3 that I put on my santas list LOLOL, but she is a kid and I'm an adult so I guess I should act like 1 LOL :-). but I digress) to make sure that it was my stock batt. in my connect was bad and not my phone that didn't agree with my rom choice. Which is #2 v1.6 by the way, by the awesome "LDrifta" (been rockin it for about a week now and have noticed a bit better batt. life, and it is still as fast as it was when I installed it :-) great job on that L by the way, if u read this bro) but yea check out the post by "SegaManXzero" on which batterys work & which ones don't & witch ones not to get. I believe he posted links in his op either in this thread or another one I'll have to look it up real quick Brb.

The optimus battery DOES work with our connects the reason you have never heard of anyone talking about it is because there is no point in talking about it. They both have the same exact battery, im not just talking mAh but the same exact model. So there is no point in getting an optimus battery because its the same as stock battery.

Right on, thank u for the enlightenment on that :-) the ones they had at my local metro store wouldn't fit in my phone, they were to long and no where near wide enough but those must have been for their v. of the optimus cause when I went in there to look for the phone for my kid they had a bunch of battery's for sale for like $5 and a lot of them were for their optimus, but I wasn't in there for an optimus so I didn't\don't know if they have more than 1 version of the optimus. I am sorry for the misinformation, Just chalk it up to ignorance on my part.:-) but thanks again for letting me know about that, I appreciate the knowledge on anything I may b wrong about.


Edit: It is in post #6, the links for the battery's @DirtAddsHP

Well I've never seen someone so modest. lol don't even worry about it. And yes there are different optimus's. I believe the one that has the same battery is the Optimus Black (p970). Both have a BL-44JN

Right on, I gotcha, I know there r a variety of optimus's LOL. I just didn't know metro had more than one kind of them. The optimus that I want is the new quad core one, I think its the optimus G. That thing looks bad a$$
