I have it. It's ok. It'll last longer than the stock battery. But not by a huge margin, like those who have the $20+ extended batteries claim. I used it to try to see if I could modify a slim case with kickstand to hold an extended battery. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to. But I used the battery for a few days and, like I said, noticeably better than the stock battery. But it wasn't so much better that I didn't prefer the slim battery and the kickstand, so I haven't used it since.

Default Extended Battery and Indicator.

Having recently bought an extended battery off ebay for my EVO 3d. It is the 3500mah which also came with a rear case back. Think I paid about 6.00.

Although it does work, I have issues that the battery/charge indicator rarely works. Basically the indicator is greyed out with an exclamation mark through it most times. Charging, the indicator normally stays like this throughout.

When I firt Plug in the charger/usb lead to charge it, the charge light usually flashes red/green, indicating that it is not charging yet. Left usually for a few minutes, it does go into charge mode with the constant red light, until fully charged and goes green. But still the Greyed out battery with exclamation mark stays.

I contacted the seller, as I thought it could be a faulty battery, but having received the new pack, it still does the same.

I have now rooted the phone, and hoped that a battery calibration app would fix the issue, but it has not.

The indicator is fine with the standard battery.

For the moment, I have installed another battery indicator which shows percentage, though I would prefer to sort this out.

Anyone else having issues with extended batteries and the indicator and is there a fix?

Yes I downloaded 'battery indicator' from the app store which gives the battery level as in percentage terms. This stays on the top left of the screen. This does give me the state of charge, but would prefer to have the stock battery indicator actually working.

Also, the problem that as soon as I plug the charger into the phone, the leds flash red/green and does not start charging straight away, and seems to have to settle for a few minutes before the led stays red?

Wondering if I end up spending more money on another more expensive 3500mah battery that it would do the same?

Guessing that someone else must have the same issue or using the same battery off ebay? Most of the extended batteries on the bay look the same in the pictures.

A more expensive battery will likely have higher quality. Its not impossible that a better one wouldn't have the same issue, but I find it unlikely.

You got what you paid for. I paid 15 US for a hyperion 3500 mah barry and threw phone has issues charging it completely if I let it drain to far. Basically, once I hit 100 , I have to unplug and replug and it will continue to charge more. I keep doing that until it finally shows 100.

I ordered, $43 buck out the door cause i live in california.

I installed the battery and backdoor, immediately i noticed the texture of the backplate, and the grip it provides. I weighed the AccessorySwamp battery in one hand, and I have a 3500MAH Seidio from my HTC Evo 4G, the AccessorySwamp battery actually felt larger & heavier.

I calibrated the AccessorySwamp battery, ran it through cycles.

Yesterday I charged the battery over night, and unplugged it at 8AM. I used the phone moderately, using internet here and there, watched a few youtube videos. listened to 2 90 minute long pod casts, and streamed about 2 hours worth of Google Music over 4G through a bluetooth speaker. I also used the GPS for 15 minutes. While doing all this, i have 2 email accounts set up, set on auto receive every 30 minutes.

With all this being said, i am not yet a root user, but I plan to root this week.

My phone ended up dying after 1 day, 23 hours and 30 minutes... I almost put 2 days of unplugged up time on this phone, no problem. I would have taken screen shots, but i'm not rooted yet. I'm going to root my phone, test the battery again, and then update this post.

stay tuned for more info on this battery... What other tests should I run on this battery?

Hey Tyler,
I'm thinking about buying that Accesory Swamp battery, but I'm a little confused, the link that you posted does not show the back cover that you took picture of, instead there is a totally different back cover. Was the picture in the link like this when you bought it or did they changed the back cover that they are selling. Right now the backcover in the picture doesnt seem very good compared to the cover that you posted.

I desperately want a 3500 or 4000 mah extended battery but they're all out of my price range. I know the cheaper ones can sometimes not be the same quality so I've just avoided buying one all together. I'd love to have one, though...

I have had my tablet for about 3 months. I have gotten very good battery life so far. Much better performance than smaller 100-1200mAh batteries. On weekends I take it with me and dont need to bring my charger if I turn it off when not using it and dont use it non stop. I dont really do battery intense things like play games or stream, I pretty much just read, web surf, facebook, email, text and stuff... Overall I am happy with the battery so far. I guess the only thing I dont like about the battery is the interface the chrager uses, its not the same plug my EVO 4g/3d use.

I've tried the cheaper no-name extended batteries, and I've purchased Seidio. There is no comparison, you get what you pay for.

My cheap battery said 3500mah, but only have about 2-3 hours up time compared to stock battery. Now, my Seidio goes all day, with plenty to spare (I plug in nightly), often still with 50%+ after 18 hours moderate to heavy use.

I, personally, won't buy another brand.

If the replacement battery is a Li-ion battery and has completely discharged, it may not be able to be charged again. I'd return it for a replacement.
