Why is the voltage fluctuating on just that one run?

It's interesting to see that some of the OEM batteries are no better than some aftermarket batteries.

I honestly couldn't tell you, maybe some inconsistencies in some its internal wiring or cell configuration? (Though I'd imagine these batteries are only one cell).

It doesn't really matter much as long as it doesn't jump out of the phone's lowest tolerated voltage, and it seemed to clear up before the battary became exhausted

Which of the batteries will fit without a "fat" battery cover you'd suggest?

2000mAh is the highest iv'e seen there is a thread in the accessories.
And the 1800 mAh is more promising and probably your best bet

Probably the OEM 1800mAh, I'd really like to get my hands on a brand new 1800mAh OEM and some generic slim batteries to make an experimental recommendation haha. But I've had bad luck with 3rd party slim batteries compared to OEM....though 3rd party fat batteries are awesome IMHO

+1


I may have a new Generic 3500 Fat battery to test soon (I'm sending my #1 in because it get's weird after 50% and shuts off or misrepresents it's battery %, which may had something to do with the inconsistent voltage spiking)

Give it 2 whole tests. Supposedly new batteries need to go through at least a charge cycle before they hit capacity but I haven't noticed this. I'd like to see if your date can back it up. The new Hyperion is amazing and I still have to convince myself to give it up to you for a few days and go back to my stock battery.

Yeah I'll run three initial tests and then use it for maybe a week or two and retest and see what's what

You made a typo here. The battery says 2010. Any info on how this battery was used? It must have been abused to be degraded down to only 800ish mAh capacity.
