Ok guys its been about a month now. And I don't know what's going on but hopefully someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. I have the two pack plus charger. So when my battery dies I always have another one ready to be put in. I just wipe battery stats then boot. But latey my battery life has been crap. Is there another way to train the phone when you're using two extended batteries? Like now, I just put in this charged battery about 20 minutes ago and it's already dropped to 73% :-( please help

Are you using 2 of the same batttery... ie... 2000mAh or are they different? When you first got the batteries did you completely drain them before charging them up? Do you wipe battery stats everytime you swap batteries?

Thats weird.... Try not wiping data every time and also just charge the battery thru the phone, when 1 is completely charged swap for the other? Not sure what else u can try.... let then drain out completely and try again.

Now if they even make batteries for warp (mugen) it would be very pricey I bought a Chinese battery for my spectrum and mugen(same battery) is $80

Thanks to this thread I bought an extended battery, recalibrating the battery as I type this (on my iPad). Weird question but does anyone have suggestion for armband holders to use? Not sure if it will fit in a normal warp one as it is a bit fatter now.

Thanks for all who post here and share ideas, I appreciate reading and learning from you all.

They have armband holders on eBay, but not sure if I want to spend the money seeing that the phone is fatter now. Was hoping someone might have an idea. With the rubber case no longer fitting I want something to hold the phone while at the gym.

Mine charges in less than 12 hours. Are you interrupting the charge at all?

Default I went a little smaller

I just wanted a small improvement over the stock battery. So I ordered the three pack of 2000mAh batteries with a wall-charger. I figured there isn't a case that is created to protect the phone after using the 3800mAh so 3x 2000mAh batteries would work for me. I'll start another thread reviewing this upgrade when the batteries arrive in a week or so.

Thats what I had done the day I received my extended battery I was floored by the size and weight of it not to mention how uncomfortable and bulky (ugly) it was to carry around,that I sent the seller a email and sent it back that night and ordered two 2180mAh stock size batteries with charger and it works great.I can go on a all day hike or bike ride using gps with no worries at all just toss them in the backpack or saddle bag,sightseeing with the family on vacation it just plane out works and makes sence.You will be very pleased and they charge just as fast as the stock battery under 90 min from being fully drained.

So much spam.. so little time!!!

I have a similar USB car charger. $5 convenience store.

The stand you have is... well unique. I saw quite a few on eBay that are case stands. Sweet rubber/hardened plastic cases with a kickstand. I would prefer to stick with that as you won't lose it since its on the phone already.

Enjoy your toys tom.

I know this is not going to come out quite the way I mean it. I do not mean to be mean or disrespectful of anyone. I know I can google just about anything on the web. If there is some rule on this forum about posting links to specific vendors or sites that I do not know about I apologize in advance. If someone finds a good price or product and wishes to share that info along with a link to the site I certainly would find it very helpful. It certainly would save time and effort. Of course if that person does not wish to do so I respect they're opinion.
When ever I see an interesting product or app or whatever I usually do a search but as everyone knows sometimes a search comes up with multiple references having a link directly to a source would be helpful.


As an example which just may be my own failings on proper searching I tried to search for the maker of the batteries noted in previous posts. I think I found they're web site but they don't seem to carry that set any more.

Most of us use ebay for the battery packs and bundle sets.

While I would have preferred the 2180 battery just couldn't seem to find one for a reasonable price. All I found where aprox $30 sets with chargers and accessories I didn't need. So I thought I'd experiment with the 3800 realizing that I wont be able to use my belt case with it.

I don't have a problem posting a link to where I ordered it for others to use if they want.

Sorry if this has already been answered, I don't currently have the time to read through the entire thread. Is it possible to charge the battery and say leave it in the glove compartment of my car as a backup? Will it hold its charge overtime? I wouldn't want that massive battery as a regular battery, but for use in emergencies it could be great!

It will last but you will need to charge it every few days to keep it charged up.

But about leaving it in the car.. I believe this would be a bad idea due to the heat the car holds during the day. It could possibly damage your battery.

Just received battery today.

Will Install it this evening an charge phone over night. I hope it will at least least all day.

Generally the stock battery does last if all I do is let phone idle all day.

But it seemed to drain a lot faster when using navigation etc.

That is no good. Twenty hours on a fully charged extended battery just idling,I get better with my stock battery in use. Somethings wrong there.

Its now been at idle ( I hope thats the correct term) for 3h 20m and its hows as at 92 %

After I posted this I stupidly took back case off and the battery fell . I re installed and started the phone back up so right now it shows 1 hr 43 min at 77 % ( did make a couple of calls though)

While experimenting with this new extended battery. I remember that in previous posts it was mentioned about the “antenna “strips that are in the stock battery case. I emailed ZTE set about them and they do seem to confirm that this strip has to do with the antenna.

While at this stage I have not done what others have done which is to remove tape from stock case and place it in new larger back case. I’m actually wondering if I can use a 2” x 2 “strip of copper or a thin aluminum foil instead. (I will most likely try them to see what happens)

I have not yet thought noticed any degrading of signal. Which may just be due to my location and other factors?

I see that there are wi fi signal strength apps available. Was wondering if there are any signal strength apps for phone signals available. Maybe something more sensitive that looking at signal bars on the phone.

Well so far this new 3800 battery appears to allot better than the stock battery. @6hrs 50m it’s only at 70%

Still wondering about this "copper" sticker mentioned in previous posts. If it’s actually some sort of "signal enhancer" I can’t seem to tell any difference without it using this new larger back case. It could be just my location compared to others in the forum. Since it’s not directly attached to phone in the stock back case. Is it supposed to work like those stick on antenna boosters that I understand really don’t work? Or maybe its actual purpose is more for RF shielding than for actual reception

Ok... As I've said I don't at the moment see any difference yet but before I start tying to peel off the tape I've made a paper template of the shape and size of the original and am going to make a copy using aluminum foil to test it out in field with the expanded case. I think aluminum should work OK

Copper is a better conductor of electricity and radio waves. The tape is rather tough and holds it shape if you do intend to peel it off sooner or later.

If you aren't seeing a difference then don't worry about it. Its up to you.

WOW... What a difference this 3800 vs stock 1600.

I started it yesterday at 9am shut phone off at around 11:30pm and then restarted phone again around 9am this morning If this is correct (with out a recharge) it says its been running 17h 55m 44s on battery and its only at 70%

I wanted to run battery down to 0 then give it a full charge and then run it for as long as it takes with out shutting phone off to really see how long it lasts
