    As far as I know, both are pretty much the same Dual Cell batteries. They are both great choices... I'd say which ever you can find cheaper! I am currently using the BL-44JS one, I have not had any issues with it.

    Well if u ok with the bulkyness of the extended batteries the qcell 3850mah has rediculous life with it and number 2 I can be on the internet or playing video games for like 15 hrs straight u can get like 36 hrs of light use. Most peolle dont like the bulky new back but the battery life is insane

So i tried to let charge for 1/2 an hour. and it finally power on(never saw charging blinking lights). I thought some thing was wrong at this point.But heck it was on.Only after a few minutes i realized it was not charging & when it does charge it wont charge past 7%. Anyone ever seen or heard of something like this before ????

    the lg connect brings a 1540 mah if you replace this battery with a 1700 mah you are gaining 160 mah
    Is that goining to make a big difference? I just wonder how much extra time is it going to give you.

    I concur. I have the QCell 3850 and absolutely HATE it! It more than doubles the phone's depth and weight, and IMO the short battery life gained doesn't make up for the phone's annoying size. I'm waiting for a new BL-44JH to come in the mail as we speak LOL... Even an extra hour over the stock BL-44JN would be okay with me :D

    I'll let you know if my phone does this too. I tried my Motion's battery in the Connect and it seemed to work fine, but I didn't plug it in to the charger to see if it even takes a charge. If so, looks like my wife scored an extra battery for her Motion :rolleyes:

    And in case anybody has thought about trying this - - - - Don't modify Connect stock battery to fit in a Motion if you own both phones! BL-44JN is a bootloop battery for the Motion 4G :D I'm taking this as Motion can pick up on Non-OEM batteries? LOL

    First NEVER BUY A USED battery u never know what problems that used battery been through u may get it and the battery may never reach a full charge. Next if you seeking a battery check ebay for the 7 bucks u paid you could have gotten a new battery with a charger and in some cases you can get a extended battery and a charger and a back to the phone . Please be careful cause its a one shot deal .
