Default Thoughts on Anker 2800mAh extended battery?

http://www.amazon.com/Anker-2800mAh-...4003101&sr=1-2

And for Canadians:
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Anker-2800mAh...item336f077ed4

Any thoughts on this battery? Has anyone tried it out? I've heard good things about the Anker 1550mAh battery for the O2X/G2X, so I'm kind of optimistic about this one. However, I recently ordered a GTMax 3500mAh from Amazon.ca, so I'll reserve my decision on purchasing this one until I'm able to test that one out.

I have a cheapo Amazon "3500mah" battery which after testing turned out to be only a little over 2000 mah however the Anker batteries appear to not bullshˇt about their numbers so I would say using logic and past experience that it would be legit and worth it if you want the extra junk in your trunk ( or pocket)

For $12.99 I'll give it a go. Just ordered. 3-5 day shipping, so once I get it I'll post my thoughts.

Right on also let us know if the temp sensor is present and working and of you want to get a accurate measurement of the actual mah rating try using battery monitor widget
Hope it all goes well

I use the anker. You get around 3 hours more than stock after conditioning the battery 3/4 times.

Which one? There's an Anker 1550mAh, and the Anker 2800mAh that I posted.

oofh, 2800 mAh is not worth if you only get extra three hrs.

I got the 2x Chichitec --

I never did a measurement, but I can get 3-4 hrs more of medium usage on the Chichitec than the stock batter.. ..

Just saying..

Don't be quick to be hating on the bohemoth.
I have found that when you first get a new battery there is a "break in" period. Not that this time will make any difference in performance long term but it normally takes a few charges or even as many as 10 to reach its peak mah capacity.
This has been documented on a few threads in this forum.
