    Has anyone gotten one of these batteries and if so how is it preforming. How have you been charging it, in the car, on wall charger, or in docking system.

    Nothing but praise for it. Especially for the price. I usually charge it overnight and with very very heavy use, end the day with still 25-35% left. I almost bought the seidio one for 65bucks. So glad I got this one for a third of the price.

    How do you charge it. Is the battery in the phone and are you using the sprint charging cord. Does the light turn green to show it is fully charged. Thanks for your reply

    When you get your extended battery to use it until it dies 2 times in a row and let it charge overnight. I've done that method with mine and it's turned out great!

    looks like the same as the ebay battery that comes with 2 batteries and 2 backs for a couple bucks more ?

    i do see this one is listed as 3500 and the other 3000 but gosh they look identical

    they are. it's a time vs cost thing. sprinkle in some difficult returns with some ebay sellers. and of course ebay will always be cheaper.

    Good luck returning the batteries from the ebay seller if you have a problem. He or she is in Hong Kong. GorillaGadgets is here in the good old U.S.A, I know he gets his stuff from overseas but if you have a problem he stands behind the product. I got my battery in 3 or 4 days(sorry don't remember) but it was very quick. And all his stuff is FREE SHIPPING

    680 posts in the thread about the chinese battery....seems to be that issues are limited. I have not yet determined that I need an extended battery but I think the ebay route sounds pretty good lol

    OH COOL!!!! An over-priced ebay battery!! Why didnt I think of that:rolleyes: I guess you dont have to wait 2 weeks for shipping if you buy from them. Basically they are just buying a bunch from ebay and then re-selling them at a higher price for a profit. I suppose some people will pay $10 more to receive 1 week sooner...

    i just got 2 3500Mah batteries, the back casing and a wall charger for 22.99 shipped.

    Best part was i had 3 dollars in ebay bucks, and 10 dollars off for putting a car up for sale on ebay classifieds...

    so this purchase cost me a grand total of 9.35 !! woo worth a try.

    cheaper alternative to the 100 for a seido... works the same

    [​IMG]

    $24.99 + free shipping

    If anyone wants more photos or different angles, feel free to ask me.

    It fits well with the docking station, i just take my stock battery and put it in the cradle, while I have my 3500 charging in the phone on the dock.

    [​IMG]This photo was taken with the 3500MAH battery installed while in the dock.

    here it is ...



    *** We should have more by next week, sorry for the delay.

    If you need it sooner, get it from the US company. Spending another $9 is not a big deal.

    If you are strapped for cash, then get it from eBay and wait another week to get it. But since they are out of stock, you will have similar delivery times going with eBay, so as of today, it's probably better to go through eBay and save the $9.

    If there is a battery issue and you need to return it...DON'T. Just buy another one for $10 (remember, you saved $9 by going the eBay route)
