Laugh 1800 MAH replacment battery from obostore

Hi guys as promised a quick report about the 1800 mah battery i ordered from obostore.com
the battery arrived today after it was ordered 8days ago in good contion and a sealed
case.
The battery itself is just a littel bit bigger than the stock 1230mah unit but after carefully pushing it in the battery tab was a littel snug but gentle push had it closed and then it was fired up and it had 75% charge in and this is the best bit battery monitor widget happily showed 1800 MAH wow was going through my head as i had finnaly found after so many other fake batterys a real deal as advertiesed battery.
I must say now that i will come back and give more indeapth reading / numbers after at least 7 charge / discharge cycles but if this is anthing to go by i was watching catch up tv for 10 mins and only lost 1% of my battery witch i would not of got from the stock unit and that is not even a conditioned battery yet god only knows what im likely to get out of this bad boy in time.
It makes me think now i will finnaly get to use my DHD in the manner it was made for and to leave the house without the need of a portable power station in tow lol.
Hope be back end of next week with the magic numbers.

It this help say it with thanks

Exclamation

Update
Im now on my second charge and went out for over 2 hours walking my dog and listening to online radio the battery had been on all all-night via my xbox usb do a better trickle charge and after getting back home and checking the battery level I was down to 93% with 3 sms and a quick Facebook hit .
Now if I had been using my stock battery we would be in the 70,s % zone
So the moral of this storey is I'm well happy.

And just over 6 with p+p . You can't even get a stock battery for
That price.
My only gripe was it,s a bit tight to get in the battery bay but well that's the price we pay for extra mah,s LOL
I've ordered a extra unit for just in case situations and olso me thinks the price on these bats will rocket now people are aware of them.

just curious about your results. I see you are down to 79% by 1500. I used to be able to achieve that and would drop to about 50 by the sleep time and always back on charge at night. Just wish I could get 3 days usage like my girlfriends Desire S

Don't forget it,s a unconditioned battery and silly sense stealing power left right and centre .
Today I have turned on launcher pro and see what happens with that power consumption.

yep she is using hers the same as me, albeit the lack of Facebook account. Nice to know like for like what this 1800 would do, but guessing being 1800 rather than 1230, should be better

That would be the main cause for concern for me. One of the guys at work had a higher capacity battery which was, like the 1800mAh, slightly bigger than the stock battery. As a consequence, he struggled to put the battery cover on and once on, it didn't sit flush with the rest of the phone and looked bent. 2-3 weeks later, the battery cover snapped.

You've also got to remember that despite appearing big for a phone, it is quite small to be packing a 1Ghz CPU, the internal storage, RAM and everything else that's needed to run the phone/power the screen. So you've no idea what damage (if any) having a bigger battery wedged in might be doing to the internal components of the phone.

I obviously hope it doesn't (and I've no idea if it is) damage the phone at all but I wouldn't be comfortable having a battery that's even slightly bigger than the stock battery in my handset.

Sounds silly, but can you see anyway of making it smaller? There aren't any labels etc that can be removed to give you an extra couple of mm?

Well the desire S battery is tight as well. Whereas with my HD, it falls out when you tip it to the side, the S you really have to try and get a grip on it to pull it out

Yeah, but HTC designed the Desire S and its battery that way, not a 3rd Party .

Like I said, I don't know if it will harm the phone in the long term or not, I just wouldn't be comfortable having it in my handset. I'm not trying to encourage others not to buy it either, just voicing my opinion.

This is kind of how I feel. I hear HTC may have something in the works. I always prefer official products, so I'll likely be waiting on that.

Official product might end up being like 4x the price. But I aswell would rather an official product. But jeeze...10, bucks seems almost too good to pass up.

From the post mailrooman made yes, it is a bit tight in the phone. I can't be specific as I don't have the battery, we'll need mailroomman to tell how tight a fit it is and how difficult it is to get the battery cover on.

As mentioned above, I can't be 100% sure it will have a negative effect on the internal workings on the phone as I don't have the battery. I do know that if batteries are a bad fit, they can damage the casing (dependant on how bad a fit is).

I could be being over cautious, but to me, the phone is designed to hold a battery of certain dimensions and even a couple of millimetres difference could be deterimental.

I think I'll give this a shot too, for the sake of 6.

As for the size, there are 19 reviews on their site and the only three to mention size say it fits.

I'll report back when I've given it a try, but that could be weeks yet, since it's being shipped internationally.

I'll be happy to be proved wrong, if it works out ok, I'll probably get one for myself.

I've generally no issues with battery life, I'm never normally away from a charger for too long, but extra capacity always comes in handy.

hi all
after 7 days of chargeing and dischargeing this is what i have found .
on the first day after putting in the battery there was around 75 % of charge "goog start".
the battery was a littel tight to get in the batery bay and to close the tab was a littel tricky as i did not want to damage the case or b
tab but it went in non the less.
my battery monitor displayed 1800 mah capacity and i used the battery as agressive as i could to work down the charge before i did a 5% to full charge via watching mcatchup tv.
i did this by via my xbox usb as to get a slow deep trickle charge over night this i now do as standard each night .
the next morning i went out for a walk with my dog with 2 and a half hours listening to online radio with a few sms and facebook hits and the other bits and bobs running in the background email every 15 mins ect ect my battery was down to 93%.
now with a stock htc battery it would easy to be in the 70%,s zone "big change"
i found that the battery was getting stronger and stronger as the days went on with more and more resluts and no longer feeling that i had to carry the charger with me .
i find my battery is lasting me around 24 hours but this mainly down to the fact im never off it .


fully charged =5122mv -1800mah -battery temp 25.0`c
the use stats of for 24 hours as follows...
display 47%
cell %29
phone idle 19%
andriod system 4%
andriod os 3%
1 tap cleaner 2%
dolphin hd 31 %
avg antivirus 2%
traffic monitor 2%
battery monitor widget 2%
while the battery was in standby the phone was taking from 1ma to 6ma per every 1 min i presume for mobile mast seeking .
i think it is as low as it is becouse im very close to a three mast by a few hundred meters away.
58 to 116 ma was taken for email checking every 15 mins
147 ma to 157 ma was taken for facebook checking also every 15 mins
watching catch up tv was by far the most hungry app taking 678ma per every 1 min
after 24 hours i have 21% of my battery left and with estimates of 4hours and 20 mins left .

please forgive me if my review is not that great but it,s my first one .
if you have questions please feel free to ask and if i can i will.


oh i should mention that the user "saftey" very rightly pointed out on a differant thread that you must manuly change the value of the capacity of the battery .
i did not as it was allready at 1800mah but just check to be sure .
if not this is how ...


You have to go into settings and then manually enter the supposed capacity of the battery under monitoring preferences and then Battery Capacity.

If you want the device to take a screenshot of itself, you'll need to be rooted. Alternatively, just take a pic with a digital camera, upload to imageshack and then put the url between a couple of image tags like this -

[IMG]Your url[/IMG]

Make sense?

Or without rooting -

Just ordered one, thanks for the heads up, hope this product makes a difference as I'm a reasonably heavy user and if I go out in the morning use phone all day, then forget to charge if I come in late at night, the battery is usually dead by morning

I just wanted to share something that I found. By placing auto updating widgets on the home screen, like the Battery Monitor Widget, you will increase the drain on the battery.

After removal I have found a significant increase in battery life for average usage. It might be worth a try. I just launch the app and it runs in the background. You can always hold down the home key to bring up the app switcher for quick access. Alternatively, just use the built in battery checker in settings (which is where the usage stats are picked up by Battery monitor app anyway).

However, when using the phone aggressively I still bring the battery to its knees in under ~ 4 - 5 hours of use. It is the display and network which kill it
