Default Extended internal battery for the LG F6 ?

Can't seem to find an extended (greater than 3000 mAH) for the LG Optimus F6. Anyone have a link to the larger battery and back cover ?

You seriously won't need one unless you very heavily use the device for more than 8 hours a day. After 5 hours of intensive use, I got to about 55% battery with the screen at 50% brightness. This included using LTE, texting, playing games, downloading apps, and web browsing. Non stop.

After 3 average workdays (for me anyways, I'm not on my phone a whole lot while AT work) and not recharging my phone, with my usual 3 hours of phone use for the ride to work, break, and back, my phone was at 44% battery when I finally plugged it back in.

I will be doing a real world test to see how long the battery can go at 50% brightness till it hits 15% if that helps any. But this battery is super long lasting.

Okay. Good to know. But I do want one. I have five for my LG Motion (3500 mAH each). Do you know where to get an extended battery for the F6 ?

Default Slightly off topic: Changing to the F6 from the Motion.

Decided to put off getting an F6 for now. Will wait for more user experience and an extended battery.

Thank you.

Default Portable Powerbank

I bought a portable power bank from newegg. Think that may be an option for you? They make small ones, big ones, disposable ones. The one I got is 10400 mAh and only 34.99. It's shorter but thicker than most phones and not too heavy. I just keep it and my phone in my pocket while at work when I need it to charge. I love it, don't have to "wall charge" anything for 3 or 4 days.
Here's a link for the one I got:
RAVPowerŽ Dynamo-On-the-Go RP-PB07 Super High Capacity Power Bank (10000mAh / 1A & 2A Dual USB Output) for Smartphones like: iPhone 5, 4G, iPad Mini, Samsung Galaxy S3, Note 2 and other Mobile Devices - Newegg.com

My battery lasts 5 or 6 hours of very heavy use. I will most likely order an extra battery to keep as a backup. I doubt i will need it.

Is this battery much better than the stock battery?

The only bad thing about this battery is that its Voltage is 3.7V wich is a low capacity battery. The battery may not last as long as stock battery. 3.8V is the better extended batteries, but are harder to find.

Apparently no one knows how to properly train your battery, because i get about 11-13 hrs of extreme use where my screen is off for about 45 min the entire day... i love the battery in this phone with minimal use i get 2 days outta the phone.. jus need to get some roms and tweaks going for this phone

That would be because there IS NO WAY to "properly train your battery".


Anyone who says there is doesn't know much about our batteries.

Sorry, but the USB is a better charge is wrong too. With our batteries, charged is charged. Period. (Lead plate car batteries like slower charges. I doubt you have a car battery in your phone though that would certainly qualify as an extended one. )

I would go for the portable power bank before an extended battery. I don't think you are going to see any/many more extended batteries. There's no damn room for them. You saw that with the Motion. That extended tumorattery was hideous. The guys making aftermarket batteries aren't any smarter than the one's designing them at the factory. The factory is going to put the best battery for that phone in it they can to start with.

I have had my phone for about 2 weeks and have had it on the charger about 7-8 times. I have been intensively using the phone as well, tweaking, bricking, rooting, installing, uninstalling, updating, modding.. etc.. etc.. All with the bluetooth and wifi radio on constantly no less @ 65% screen brightness. This is one hell of a battery, my phones never fallen below 50% yet.

How do guys have such good battery life with it? Mine only lasts 5 hours of intensive use from %100 to dead.

Bad battery maybe? Have you let your battery actually drain to 0% and shut the phone off before plugging in n charging it to 100% while the phone was off. I mean I've always used the practice that even when I get a phone before I turn it on I let it charge 100%.
