It is well known that the Lumia 710 doesn't have the best battery life. I found a "replacement" battery on e-bay that is larger in capacity. The standard BP-3L OEM one is rated at 1300mAH and the replacement battery on e-bay is rated at 2430mAH.

Anyone have luck with this battery? Not sure if anyone has purchased batteries from this manufacturer, e-cell, and if their products are any good?

The Nokia 710 uses the same battery as the Nokia 603 which is a a BP-3L not a BP-4L.

Who said anything about a BP-4L? The extended battery on ebay is listed as a BP-3L.

The listing states "GOLD 2430MAH BP-3L HIGH CAPACITY BUSINESS BATTERY FOR NOKIA 603 LUMIA 710" which means the 710 uses the same sized (physically) battery as the 603, which is what I'm guessing your implying.

Sorry about the confusion. The ad does say 710 and BP-3L. There was another thread where someone was asking about a BP-4L and I replied to the wrong thread.
However, I would be skeptical of a similar sized battery with such a high capacity.

No worries about the confusion I went ahead and just ordered this battery on ebay; if it is fake then I'll request a charge-back via Paypal Simple as that. Stay tuned.

Utter rubbish. Not the capacity claimed. Member id fubbybob (private) Feb-14-12 13:00

Hi. I'm italian and I don't know how to speak a good english. I've bought that battery, the seller is reliable. The battery has arrived with nothing. I've tested it and the result was... 1300mAh. I left a negative feedback, and the seller has refunded me. But i still have the battery. Now i just ordered a 1,70 bp-3l (1500mah) :)

Italy <3!

As for the battery I ordered, still hasn't arrived. I will await my arrival and test it as well. Thanks for your input.
