the extended battery that you show is the correct one for the 3000 mah but the back cover isnt, yet the other one seems, correct I will confirm it when it gets here, which might take a while, until may 4th i wont know.

It is tempting for only $16 though.

exactly this one has the back cover which we needed, now if it doesnt work as expected we can always get a second extended battery now that we have the back cover.

The name on my battery says LG that means no matter where it is made; it will be made by LG specs. The battery we are talking about in this post was not made by LG in fact; I didn't see any company's name on it which leads me to believe it is a cheaply made chinese battery with subpar standards.

There are plenty of batteries out there. Just go to ebay and type in ...

3500 mAh extended battery for LG Connect

Disclaimer: None of these people have top-rated seller status. If you read some of their negative feedback; some people are complaining the batteries they bought from them don't fit their phones. Buyer beware. Good Luck.

ill take pics of it and screenshot battery life on a normal day of use and let you know battery life, now this will mean playing video, browsing, email calling and texting and well i think i might need to change swiftkey beta 3 since it consumes a lot of battery it seems.

I just ordered one of these..

New 3500mAh Extended Battery + Cover For MetroPCS LG Connect 4G MS840 | eBay

I don't care about the battery as much as I do about the cover. I can always get a better battery for it.

I will snap some pics when I receive it.

And we definitely mean pictures of the battery. That quote is so horrible out of context it must be intentional.

The 1900 only gives you an extra 2 or 3 hours.

since the phone is slim in the first place it looks a little bit bigger than the esteem with a case, but hopefully with the battery life being a big improvement. so far i have to cycle it 3 - 5 days to give you guys real performance, the first day i did around 7 hours of really heavy use, a lot of youtube, netflix, texting, browsing, email.

So there's no way the phone will fit in any of the cases that are out for it with that ext battery and case on it? I'm guessing all ext batteries with cases will be that big. I've found ways around going through my battery so fast by leaving it in airplane when I'm not using it (i.e. at work, ect.) So I'm not really hurting for a bigger one just yet.

The only problem is that in airplane mode you cannot receive any calls.

sure, you can easily make the stock battery last a whole day. you just have to totally cripple the functionality of the device and not use it that much.

I can't really answer my phone while I'm working anyway, if its important enough peeps can reach me through the work line, so I don't sweat it. I've had one charge last me a 12hr shift using that method, and left work with around 39% charge. Other than at work I never really use my phone enough while I'm out, only other time I see battery life being a problem is if I leave the house without a good charge (meaning 80%+). Maybe I don't use my phone as much as others..

That is one case , and that only works for you in your case, other people might need their phone so is good that you can make it work, but you are crippling the phone itself, by disabling the network, might as well don't have one connected and just run it on wifi only.

So do you think its damaging to my phone to leave it in airplane mode for hours at a time throughout the week?

No I'm saying you might not need to pay for service and just keep it to use on wifi service, is about the same as what you are doing now, use calls through google voice.

for what you're using the phone for you could've saved yourself $250 and bought and admire or a score M.

Is your phone rooted? Did you uninstall any of metro bloatware? I'm curious because I have this battery and it only last me 8 hours and all I do is listen to some music, make some calls and surf the web. My phone isn't rooted. I do use the gingerbread keyboard,Juice Defender and 2x battery.
