    Yes!! It's Out! For all of you big talkers !

    The Super Extended battery from "Mugen Power" has done it again with the 3900 mah battery. I don't have any proof that it works like Advertise, Which let me tell you Mugen is Claiming 19.6 Hours of talk time and 1220 Hours of stand by that's 50 days !!

    When I get it this Tuesday or Wednesday ..I will let everyone know how it works
    Because it has a 79.00 dollar hefty tag. That's a Lot of Subway 5 dollar Sandwiches lol ...So i'm sure people will just spend the 20 dollars for the 2400 Mah

    There is the site so you can check it out ..OR you can search for it on ebay.

    HA, you and me both Chris. The Sprint Hero has all of what? 4 hours talk time? UGH, thats just no good at all. With that kinda life, I cant see this phone making it a whole day without needed to be recharged.

    Actually it fits in its Original Case that came with it believe it or not i thought it was not going to be possible given the fact that it went from chubby to Fat ass in like 2 seconds flat

    Look at it this way ..No need for guns or self defense ...Just throw your G1 at your attackers no one is going to suspect that your G1 one also Doubles as a Weapon lol

    Interesting! I got the Mugen 1400mh extended battery (the one that just replaces the factory 1050mh, and doesn't need a thicker backplate) and I'm reasonably happy with it. But I travel a lot and that big 3900mh puppy looks like a fine idea for those trips (size is not a big issue as I'm now moving away from carrying a laptop at all...).

    Just a follow up. Having bought and now calibrated the Big Unit, I'm getting 48 hours of heavy usage out of it between charges.

    Yes it's a big case: 1 1/16" thick overall. But I can cope with that when I'm traveling (when I can't cope with an 8-hour max small battery....)

    But is Well Worth it Isn't I mean Sometimes I don't Charge my Phone for like A Week an A Half at a time ..and Sometimes 2 Weeks And the thickness is tolerable and it's better than getting 6-8 hours of constant use with the other one ..Oh and thats 2 weeks with everything on like GPS and WIFI and All the other power Hungry Apps ...I loved it and I hope you did As well AGB

    Thanks for the info on this. Want to run a fun test.....turn off BT and Wifi if you don't use it constantly and see how long you can go.

    I leave GPS on but turn of 3G, BT and Wifi and get about 24-30 hours of usage out of the standard battery on a G1.

    I would probably turn on 3G.

    2 weeks is amazing. I haven't had a phone that was that good in a long time.

    In this connection, 2 useful apps:

    Toggle Settings (free)

    and

    Power Manager (the free version is good; the 2 buck upgrade well worth it).

    The first, if put on the home screen, saves menu-digging in G1's Settings.

    The second both gives a useful monitor screen of battery status etc, but also allows custom Power Profiles to be created.

    Given I am getting a full 48 hours with screen permanently on, one or other of WiFi and 3G permanently on, GPS on, heavy mail synching on, and often the music player running too (though that *is* a battery hog....), I'm pretty sure that with more frugal power use, I'd easily get a week...

    I helped develop an app called Timeriffic that might also be helpful in power mgmt, with little impact to the way you choose to use the device. Set and forget.

    Well Mugen Power Was claiming 50 days of stand by and about 20 hours of talk time but their results did not say what was running and what wasn't So I'm sure i can get about a 3 weeks to a month Stand by if I Turn everything i don't use off ..Well if you are patient enough i'll get back to you in about a 3 weeks time But i wont promise that i wont use it as a phone lol

    I would expect you to use it with phone and browsing and etc, like a normal power user who is trying to conserve "some" but not cramp your lifestyle. I can wait. Looking forward to it actually.
