Post CHICHITEC 1900 mAh batteries

Yup, looks like they are now selling 1900mAh batteries over at htcexpress now.

Anyone have one yet? I'm not sure when they started selling them but just noticed today. I have my 1800 right now and still love it. Will probably order a 1900 later today.

Thoughts anyone?

Is it physically larger than the stock battery?

Sweet.

And much cheaper than the Seidio 1750mah battery that I already bought too.
I may gamble $20 on this.

If you do get it, let us know how it works for you please.

That right there makes me question the actual capacity of this battery. Even a 1500mAh battery is barely able to fit under the stock cover (Seido's 1750 mAh battery isn't really 1750mAh). Just be careful ordering this as it could be a re-branded 1300mAh battery.

I got the 2 pack + wall charger. They are great. I can go a whole day with my normal usage (few calls maybe 3-4, tons of texting, some internet, lots of market browsing) and end the day with about 72-80% vs my normal 50%
Im running CM7 with chads incredikernel.
what I did was I charged the battery in the included charger till full, then booted my phone to recovery, wiped battery stats (im rooted, yes), THEN powered down and popped in the 1900 and im running GREAT!

htcexpress batteries have been known to be legit products, check around the forum for posts about the 1800 they already sell. My 1800 definitely has a greater life over the evo 1500.

Good to know crazy, I just ordered my 1900s today, I'm still on my 1800 and love it!

hmmm.....u got me thinking about it. I'm just curious as to if it holds up over a few months or if it drops off quite a bit like some of the others I was reading about. My bat life is horrible, like everyone elses, so I'm definitely up for a way to improve that. Just wasn't interested in putting that bigger battery in it.

I thought the same thing.
I am using the Seidio 1750, and I can go all day on a charge if I am in an area with a strong signal. But if I am in an area with a weak signal, it drains much faster. It's hard to believe that if you can't cram 1750 into the stock battery frame size, then how can you get 1900 into that small package?

Got an HTC 1500mah battery today.

Also, haven't noticed any drop off in my life yet. Had mine since December.

I just ordered the two 1900 batteries plus wall charger for 30 bucks, seems like a great deal to me considering that I have heard mostly great things about all their products.

Is there any bulge in the back door cover? Does the 1900 seem any bigger than the 1800, or the stock battery?

Doesn't seem any bigger at all than my 1800, and neither have any bulge for me.

This fits the Droid Incredible 1 correct?

EDIT: Nevermind, I see that it does. Also add coupon OFF10 to get $2 off.

Any update? I just got mine in yesterday and am charging it up for the first time so I will let you guys know what I think in comparison to my 1500 RHOD160 that I've been using. That battery started out as a slight upgrade, getting me an extra 3 hours... but has died off quickly in 7 months. If this 1900 gets me a full day with average use, I'll be a happy man.

So far the past few days, I've noticed I can let the phone sit for about 8 1/2 hours and only loose 1-2%.

I'd easily say moderate usage for this last day. From 4:30am yesterday till now, 6:00am the next day, I'm at 68 percent. (5-10 reboots from various mods/themes, and flashing a radio in the bootloader/ into recovery for some things, my average amount of calls/texts, bout a half hour of actual browsing on xda app/miui app, few market updates including the newest google maps update/browsing for apps, making layouts throughout the day, downloaded a handfull of wallpapers and themes from the theme manager in miui and anyone who uses that knows that takes a bit) All I can think of at the moment.

I don't bump charge ever, and this was all on 3g with my dbm's being in the -90+'s 99% of the time.

Imo equal or better than the 1800 I had, and I highly bet better, but I'm not on a rom that I can see my awake time. So until I go back to one of my sense roms I won't truly know. But I like it..

Do these batteries have rounded corners like the stock battery, or are they square like most of the 1500s? I have one with square corners and I find my case doesn't fit nicely, it makes the whole phone feel junky.

Will they sell just one? Seems like a good deal, but the second one would be a complete waste since I already have several other spare batteries.


Thanks

It's certainly better than the 1500. I go a full day with moderate use with the 1900 and by 5pm I still have about 25% battery left. I can't say for sure how long this will keep up... but if it's for 6 months, I feel I got my $18 worth. Also this battery fits perfectly in my stock Incredible - nothing needs to be adjusted or modified.

With off-brand lithium ion batteries, you need to ensure the build quality is sufficient; I've heard of one too many poorly constructed Made-in-China specials exploding inside laptops, cell phones, and cameras.

So does anyone have any info on this battery's build quality? Does it seem good? Is the manufacturer in good standing?

Default Battery Peel 1900mah (Anker and Chichitec)

Guys! I have bought many extended, so called oem batteries over Ebay and Amazon that promised same or better life per charge. All seemed the same or even worse. So what i have done was peeled of the cover off and what i have found was that the batteries that claimed 1500mah would be around 900mah. So if you wanna be sure in what you getting, peel it off take a picture and send it back to the seller half way off. I think its a crime for them to sell us crap!! I got a new phone the HTC sensation 4g, i will test the Anker and Chichitec claim of 1900mah.

If you guys wanna see me post pics for proof comment. thank you
you can comment with the pics of your own if you like

I'm considering getting the 1800 or 1900 batteries but I've read about how the batteries need to be recalibrated. I haven't rooted my phone so I'm wondering if I'll see any improvement if I just simply replace old with new without doing any of the battery stats wiping, etc. that rooted folks can? Thanks.

I just received the two batteries. To my surprise I also received a wall charger. Batteries look exactly as advertised and fit perfectly. I turned on my battery calibratrion feature which is part of my "Battery Left" app. This will give me a good idea of the amount of time I can utilize my phone before the battery dies.

Report coming.

Ok so I went from having to charge twice a day to no longer having to charge during the day. On "Battery Left" after a full calibration, it is reporting back a 35H 18M charge. I know I left it on for over 24 hours to get a full calibration. No special treatment and using the phone the same way I always have.

The big question is how long will I get these kind of results? I just know that for a price of ~$11 a battery, if these hold up a year with this kind of charge, I did well!

Final update:

Been over a month and still getting about 30hrs of up time. Have not even tried out the second battery yet. Over all, I would highly recommend getting this battery if you want to keep the same slimline feel and same case.
