    Hey everybody, I received my trexcell extended battery. I got it charged to 100% and ready to see how much longer it will last over the 1800mah stock. I removed quite a few running services and useless apps from the phone. I mainly use my phone while working so I will put it through my daily pace and see how it works.

    Btw the cover is shiny and super prone to fingerprints. So if that bothers you, then this is not the cover for you. Also it adds bulk and weight which is a plus for me. I feel like I'm holding a man's phone again.

    After 8hrs of use and at 77%, seems great, what do u feel is wrong?

    That's not 8hrs, that was more like 2.5 or something close to that.

    Just to update anyone paying attention...

    I feel something is just making the battery suck. So I went ahead and rooted the phone. I added setcpu and turned down my cpu. Also along with advanced task killer to kill unwanted apps while the screen is turned off. Once I type this update I will continue to monitor my usage and effects on the battery.

    I may be wrong but I believe you are supposed to wear down a new battery to zero percent and then charge to 100 uninterrupted in order to calibrate the battery correctly. Also you should wipe the battery stats when you switch batteries.

    I have a decent time with my battery to begin with on my Galaxy S2. This is of course in relation to previous devices (Evo 4G). I get a good 6-8 hours out of my normal battery. I don't run anything heavy. Mostly text and web browsing and light gaming. My Evo 4G Sedio extended battery was enormous and I would get a solid day out of it. Im hoping this will do the same.

    Sorry for the late update. But it seems to be something wrong os wise. I have done everything(or I think I have)! Now I'm having trouble with the root. I used zedomax method and now I have no wifi. But as for the battery time, I'm getting 6-8hrs which is not good. I'm a heavy text user but I still should be in the 9th range. The trexcell is a help cause I would be at 1% in 2hrs tops with the stock. I really want to try a rom with absolutely nothing on it. I mean stock android and see what happens. But I'm having trouble loading that. So if anyone could help that would be awesome! I will post the seido 3200mah stats tomorrow night, from start up to dead battery.

    Edit: btw, I downloaded juice defender. Pretty cool app.

    I had a Seidio 4000 on my EVO 3D...could almost get 2 full days on a charge...had the Gorilla Gadget 3500..good but not as good as the Seidio...I just traded in the Evo for the S2...Stock battery blows ...Tryin this Trexcell but will probably get the Seidio...Can't lose with that battery..Always had them with my EVOs...I also ran Ultimate Juice on the EVOs and now the S2...really works great with either of the batteries...I run the Hell outta my phones with everything runnin like a smart phone should...UJ takes care of everything and like I said it really shows with the life I get outta these batteries...:eek:

    These are pics of the seido 3200 mah. This is on 3g use and text messaging. Not much use, basically average use. But so far good use for us working folk out here. So far good life for out and about without touching a charger.

    This the final of the seido 3200mah extended battery below. Avg use, wifi and not so good phone signal. I decided to not put it on the charger after last night's post. With the tweaks the battery and phone did phenomenally well. I have juicedefender with the cpu set at 200mhz max while idle. I hope my little data helps you guys find better solutions to our battery woes. By the way the pic is the battery left at 2%.

    I ordered the product via Amazon.com and was excited when the shipment said it had been delivered. I came home from work, opened my box and BAM! no battery. I contacted Amazon (who the order was supposedly fulfilled by) and they said that they did not receive the product from the seller. They refunded my money (well its pending anyway) but I would have preferred the battery instead. Oh well...

    Hey that freakin blows! Did you just ask them to replace the order and they pay for next day shipping?? I would be upset myself.

    To conclude this, the trexcell 3800mah is a good battery to have especially if you take the time to root. Sorry I didn't show final stats. But Avg use you can pull 10-13hrs out of it. I think that is a huge step up. On a non rooted phone I guessing 9-12hrs which is still a huge step up from the present issues. Now if you are a phone abuser expect 2.5hrs or more less off that time.

    These are not professional opinions, just a guy in to his device like rest of you and trying to help all of us gain better results for our buck.

    Unless you have somehow managed to install a version of Android prior to 2.1 you really should get rid of any task killers. Not only do they not work, but they now cause more battery drain and inefficiency. The best task manager you can have came right on your phone, it is called Android OS.

    Since you have both the Trexcell and Siedo batteries which would you say last longer? I am looking to buy another battery but if I am buying an extended battery that needs a new back I need one that is going to last the longest.

    I can usually make it through most of the day on a charge since I plug my phone in every time I am in my car. But when I am out playing some games to kill time or taking pictures I could use the extra juice.
