    Just be warned that some of these batteries are not supported by the phone though. So it might require a little bit of research first to make sure they are compatible, cause some extended batteries will NOT charge in the phone...

    it doesnt matter if it fits. some of them will not charge when they are in the phone and you will need to charge them in a cradle. do you work for that damn company or some shit?

    There is already a LONG thread about extended batteries. Rather than having us repost all the stuff why not go read it?

    Long story short most of the extended batteries will not charge in the phone

    Laz818 you are either lying or have been lied to.

    The phone will not charge a battery it does not recognize. Either while powered or while shut down. It will display a message that it is not supported.

    This is for safety reasons because each battery has an amount of charge it can take at a time and a safe temperature. If you override this it is quite easy to start a fire (remember all those bad laptop batteries that exploded?)

    That link goes directly to one of MY posts ;)

    I have found the information needed to modify the kernel to accept aftermarket batteries. http://androidforums.com/indulge-all-things-root/328049-use-non-oem-batteries.html
    A custom kernel is currently being tested and I will push to have this modified applied if possible

    The lithium ion battery in our phones is exactly the same as most laptop batteries, just smaller. They both have circuitry to monitor the charge and a maximum amount of charge that can be applied at one time. If our 1500mah hours were perfectly efficient we could theoretically charge it at 1500ma and have it be full in one hour. Unfortunately a battery like that would cost way too much so there has to be a balance between performance and price.

    The aftermarket batteries often lack the proper circuit. Some, including the OE Samsung 2600mah battery, have the right IC onboard but the phone doesn't have a "profile" for the specific battery and refuses to charge it.

    So far the ONLY batteries anyone has found to charge in the phone are 1500mah or 1150mah.

    Sent out an e-mail to Batterybay.com inquiring about the extended battery that they have been working on for the Indulge and here was their response.

    "TO our customer,

    It will be in late June. So please wait with patient. Thanks."
