I ordered the battery from the link above an received it yesterday (Delivery time 3-4 days). I have charged it to 100 % and although its too early for a definite judgement, i can safely say that its far better than my last battery which was 15 months old.

Regarding NFC - I noticed that the battery is the regular EB504465VU as opposed to the "EB504465VUCINU" displayed on the site. @akshayw - could you please check yours and report the actual model no.?

The battery says EB504465VUC while the packing it came with says EB504465VUCINU so dont know what is right ? I am hardly interested in the nfc thing so it does not bother me.

Default Thats wrong.

I don't know if it was a mistake on The Mobile Store side, but it is not label as "NFC" anywhere
My battery which I use says model no EB504465VU.

Even if the battery supports NFC, our device, I5801,I5800 is in no hardware specs compatible with the technology, and how will thee phone and battery communicate?

I think this is only for phones that already have NFC. It probably just increased the strength of the connection between the phones.

LG Nexus 4 - Stock + Xposed
Samsung Captivate - CM 11
Samsung Galaxy S II - AOKP

Apparently, NFC chip can be embedded on battery and even UIM and SIM. So no wonder battery can have an NFC chip embedded... But yet, the ability of our device to utilize that chip iz highly dubious

|| Moto G (Stock 4.4.2) ||
|| Galaxy 3 (Stock Froyo 2.2) ||
|| Galaxy tab 2 (CM 11 Official Nightly) ||
|| Micromax Ninja A89 (Stock 4.0.4 w/ Xposed) ||

It's important to recognise the difference between an NFC 'chip', NFC 'powered chips' and 'NFC readers'.

An NFC Chip is just a tiny chip with a Hex code stored in it. The chip is connected to a long, winding, looping aerial that, when it is hit by a certain frequency, bounces back in such a way as to broadcast the Hex code. NFC chips cost pennies to make (I have used them previously to implement a car parking tracking system for a car rental company).

Powered chips have a power source that can make the chip broadcast on its own. It can identify itself to a reader, rather than waiting for the reader to look for it. Apart from this, it just does the same as a normal Chip.

An NFC reader can send these radio waves out, and receive the Hexcode message that is bounced back. This is the type of device that actually 'does' something with the code, and needs drivers, hardware interfaces and so on.

So: NFC Enabled, what does it mean? Well, it could just be a gimmick that lets you read how much power is left in a battery by 'reading' from its bounce. It could also mean it can somehow communicate with the phone, acting as an NFC reader, adding functionality to the phone itself. Frankly, I find this a bit unlikely.

I think the nfc drivers needs to be implemented in our g3 kernels

I badly need a battery. Which site should I order from? Shopping world or The Mobile Store? The first or second link?
