    This post is for everyone thinking about buying an extended or third-party battery.


    BatteryBoss Calls Out False Capacity Claims!

    It's a scientific breakdown of smartphone batteries. Basically, the conclusion is that most 3rd party and some 1st party batteries don't live up to their rated specs, and some are outright wastes of money.

    READ THAT SITE now, before making any battery purchases.

    So much for the mugen 1800 battery purchase! 70-79%. I don't think so.

    Wow so even Seidio is not doing all that hot, with their 1750mah battery having less juice than the stock 1500mah.

    Exactly! The conclusion is basically just stick with your OEM model.

    LOL i should have posted this in a single thread to get more attention. I've linked to the battery guy's post in several threads but people don't bother reading it.

    here's the 10+ page discussion for those who want to read

    At the batteryboss.org site, it shows that those 3rd party batteries are actually MORE expensive.

    Eh, I've had a Seido 2600mAh extended battery for my palm pre and it was the best investment for that phone I made. Dramatically improved battery life, I could get almost a couple days on heavy usage and with the stock battery, that same usage would net about 12 hours if that. I used the phone with the stock battery for the first 3 months and then used the Seido for about 7 months, at that point got rid of the phone. My GF also has a Seido extended in her Pre and is still using it.

    So that site may have some things to think about, but I wouldn't just take it at that and completely discount getting an extended battery. For me, my personal experience means a bit more to me than a website claiming all third-party batteries are not very good.
