Default Anyone seen/used this new batter (1600mAh!)

NEW 2x1600mAh 3.7V battery+USB Charger For Motorola Triumph WX435 | eBay

It is being manufactured by a company called yiboyuan according to the photos on ebay. Anyone seen this battery, or used it, or even used anything by yiboyuan? I am very interested in two 1600mAh batteries for 13 bucks.

I bought that one and a 1500 battery 2 weeks ago.

still waiting for them to arrive.

when they do ill let you know.

I dont expect them to work well, or at all, but for 4 or 5 bucks each its worth testing.

lets hope my phone doesnt explode.

Ordered one a week or so ago but it's only about an 8.6% improvement.
I'll let you know how it goes. Hopefully it is not half made out of chinese cardboard.

I ended up ordering the combination below. I received the charger first followed by the battery a few days later. I did a full charge on the battery and then put it in my Triumph. It was at 100% when I went to bed and at 83% when I woke up. I've been downloading some apps and sending some texts and it seems to be working fine. I will be happy to post further findings as they develop. So it only cost a total of $15 for both items and so far I am happy. I would recommend these items!

Came home to find my replacement 1500mAH battery arrived today.

has no brand name on it (red flag) but model number is HHB4Z1 which brings up the battery in a google search as being for the Huawei IDEOS X6 and Ascend X

it came with a 59% charge and seems to be charging normally without heating too much.

ill find out tomorrow how it does in a full days use.

im just glad to be able to swap to a fresh battery when the first ones dead. really, REALLY coulda used that earlier today.

Well, I was still at about 35% after 14 hours. It seems to be working fine, at least as good as the original one. I hope that helps. It's more than I expected for only spending $15 total.

I'm sick of my Triumph's battery life and I'm about to get this battery you've mentioned. How's the performance now? still a good buy?

Well, I left it plugged in and charging last night. Will report back tonight how it lasted today. I have my other battery with me, just in case.

Well, it seems to work fine. It's not any worse than the original battery, so I guess for $15, it's worth it to me. It was only $5.80 for the battery and $9.95 for the PowerGen charger.

Thanks. I'll probably be getting these. I'm currently juggling the stock battery along with the 3 hhb4z1 1500mah. I get around 2 hours battery life with heavy usage, 7 hours with light usage, 12 hours with light usage + jd, and 24+ turning data off and rebooting the phone.

Mstechify has a pretty good comparison between all of the battery choices for the MT here.

The 1500 mAh fairs just as good as the 1600 mAh according to this... but keep in mind your MT with different apps running in the background & rom setup could differ from her tests.

my 1500mAH lasts about as long as the stock battery.

but nothing beats being able to swap a dead battery for a fresh one at the end of the day when your friend invites you out and you dont have enough time to charge your phone. awesome awesome AWESOME.

and it was only 4.99

im going to buy a external charger and 2 more batteries. theres times where I will need that security, and its a good investment considering this is a powerful phone I will own for a very long time before I upgrade

Hey I just wanted to post that I purchased this battery Here from eBay. It took a week or two to get here but it is night and day compared to the stock battery. My stock battery would have to be charged around 10pm after being taken off at 9am but this battery goes from 9am until 2am or later and that's with moderate use.

I'm sitting at 52% life still and I've been taking a bunch of pictures and using web occasionally today. I am very impressed with this battery.

I've gotten one too. Just came in the mail today so I'll have to see how it fairs. These batteries have gone down in price. link
