    Any recommendations for an aftermarket battery for the motorola triumph? How much of an improvement in battery life can I expect?

    Many users report getting much improved battery life with various ROMs. In my experience I have easily gotten 20 hours using MTDEV-CM7.2. Do you need more than that?

    I'm using the MTDEV CM7.2 ROM at the moment. At home I've been able to top it out at 35 hours battery, but at my university Sprint's signal is crap. I average 1 bar, 2 bars max. So the lack of signal really pulls on the battery. That's why i'm seeking a hardware (battery) solution.

    Well I believe Amzer makes add on battery packs powered by either a single or two AA batteries. Other than that, here's some general battery life suggestions:

    1) Reduce number of homescreens
    2) Turn off wifi and 3G when not using them
    3) Turn off hepatic feedback and keytones
    4) Reduce number of widgets, especially ones that use a live data feed (constant updating)
    5) Turn screen brightness down
    6) Don't use a live wallpaper, use a picture with dark colors
    7) Are you overclocking? Lower the CPU max if you are.
    8) Underclock the CPU min.
    9) Experiment with different governor/io combinations. The best yielding
    in my testing were Interactive/sio and SmartassV2/cfq.
    10) Try undervolting a bit. Apps like Incredicontrol or System Tuner work, but
    be careful. In my testing this ROM was only stable at decreasing all
    values by 50 mV.

    I bought 4 of the Power Max 2000mAh batteries and they do give you longer battery life. But beware, I had 1 of the batteries just die completely one night.

    Have these been verified as actually having (or having close to) 2000mAh? I've read lots of posts that claim you can't fit more battery in the same amount of space which is the reason that true extra capacity batteries usually require a modified back cover to accommodate the larger battery.

    It would be great to have a longer-lasting battery for the MT, but I've seen lots of posts from people who got ripped off with crappy replacement batteries.

    Good to see mstechify did a thorough run through...

    EDIT: It is disturbing to know however that all the aftermarket batteries didn't report battery temp properly- this could be a serious issue if you overclock.
