i ordered mine but im wondering for those of you who have it, how is it? more life than stock?
Yeah it definitely gave me more battery life than the stock battery. Gets me through a day and a half with moderate usage.
ok nice, did the build quality of the battery seem weird to you? the back of mine indents in a little bit making it seem extra thin. u think they would use all the space they can to give that extra juice.
dont get it seido f***kin sucks i was getting 19 hours on the seido battery with barley any use. I pulled it out and put the oem battery i got 34 hours i constantly loose power will idle with seido battery with oem my power % stays the same left uplugged with seido over night i loose 20-30% battery oem battery i loose 5-9%
I use juiceplotter app to tell me all this
Whoops, maybe I shouldn't have ordered one either.
Will test both overnight in the next 2 days.
i Have been using it and to me it seems like it definetly gives me more battery. I havent done and real tests yet but it seems better.
Seidio has been around for a while, on many other platforms. I'm not saying that they don't make a dud every once in a while, but the instructions say that you need to go thru a few charging cycles before you see normal operation.
FWIW, my 2100mAh Seidio for my Motorola Q gets me thru 2-3 days of my normal use. Its now my backup phone, and its been sitting idle on my nightstand, polling (3) email accounts every 2-3 hours on AT&T's 3G (no calls and only played w/settings and browser for about an hour, and slingbox for about 1/2 an hour this week). I pulled it off the charger Monday morning, and I still have about 15-20% battery left, as of Friday afternoon.
If the 1750mAh Seidio is about 15% more mAh than the OEM, then expect about a 15% gain in usage time, given similar usage patterns...YMMV. However if you were going dead after say 18hrs, that extra 15%, if used for idle time, it may get you over that 24hr hump.
I can't tell a difference between the Seidio battery and Stock, it's definitely not worse but at the same time I can't really say it's better either...
I've had my battery for a few days and gone through 3 charging cycles. Within 10 minutes of unplugging it the battery drops 5% and I hadn't even turned on the screen yet. It's been unplugged for 3 hours now. I had one short call and a few mails and texts. No Internet or music or video. The battery is at 77%. Is that normal? My stock battery is horrible. It dies after 5 hours.
on my stock battery, i do notice a quick drop down 5-6% but then it starts trickling down at a much slower rate. Batteries don't drain uniformly, it seems. I'm getting great battery life on mine after the gsm/cdma thing which I can't say enough about how great it is.
I have had this battery in both the Incredible and now the EVO and it DEFINITELY has a better life than the stock one.
how many more hours are you getting would you say? 1750 vs 1500 makes me want to wait for one with more mA
Im not sure exactly how many more hours but lets put it this way. I took my phone off about 830 this morning but I really havent used it much and at 5 this evening I was still at 90%. The stock battery was at 60-50% for the same thing.
i would have to say that i am gettin better battery life with the seidio. ive been testing both of them under the same settings and usage and the stock battery drains alot faster in my opinion.
the seidio build quality of my battery sucks. it doesnt fit well in my evo either, its thinner than the stock battery and its harder to put in. i think im going to return it and get either another one, an oem one, or does anyone have any other good brands they can recommend?
Please PM me your order #, It will be taken care of Monday (6/14)
Sorry about the problem
I sent mine back and I have been waiting for a refund...
Hey, I sent you an email saying my battery doesn't last at all a few days ago and never heard back. My battery drops 10% within minutes of being unplugged
It drains battery like mad, draining 10% in less than an hour doing nothing. OEM was much better, lasted 24 hours with light usage, but with the seidio one it lasted like 8 hours or less. Even after many cycles.
I cant send mine back, it passed 14 days, so i have to exchange... i accidently ordered the HTC TOUCH PRO 2 one and got it a week before the evo came out, but it fits and works on the EVO.
Already sent RMA form, hopefully all goes well with a new battery.
seidio when is this going to be released? sometime soon I hope...
Innocell 3500mAh Extended Life Battery For use with HTC EVO 4G
Comparing both the Seidio did last a bit longer. I got 14 hours out of it today with medium to heavy usage.
