Default 820 spare battery and standalone battery charger options

I'm looking for cheap 820 spare batteries and a standalone battery charger. Understandably, this is a new phone and folks can't expect a lot of accessories to be on the market yet, but I figured we could have a thread to track the options.


For the Samsung Focus we were satisfied with generic batteries and chargers like this one:
http://www.amazon.com/Batteries-GT-I...attery+charger

These batteries are still working OK after a year of use although they only last about 80% as long as the name brand batteries and according to our kitchen scale weigh a few grams less. The charger just cut out and fails to charge after a solid year of daily use. I opened it up planning to diagnose with the multimeter, but never got around to fixing it. Really though for $13 it wasn't bad for 2 working spare batteries. So I'm looking for something similar for the 820.

+1 for this, I am also looking for something same. Got it for my old HD2 and I bought the Lumnia 820, because of you can change the battery and extend your memory with the microSDHC Card.
We will see what time will bring us on extensions for the device. I think its to new at the moment.

Default Universal cell/camera Li-ion battery charger

Has anyone used one of these universal chargers that allows you to move the charging pins to fit any battery?

Might be a good option.

AT&T still has the best shipped price for replacement batteries in the USA:

Even if the site still shows a Samsung Focus-S battery

Best price I can find from a brand I suppose I can trust. After all, it is sold on Newegg. $9.99 with free shipping

I want it because I it says it is a Li-Ion as opposed to the stock Li-Po battery. For some reason I just don't trust Li-Po batteries.

Default Re: 820 spare battery and standalone battery charger options

I've used an external charger with adjusting pins for about a year. Radio shack sells them. It's not the best quality but as long as you don't drop it, its all good. No complaints other then the price. But locally their not easy to find.

The EZO power one I posted earlier is 100 mAh more at 1750mAh. I haven't used it very long, so I don't know if it lasts any longer..

Also, there is a Mugen Power one for $45. It is 150mAh more at 1800mAh total.

The EZO battery is $6 shipped at Amazon 3rd party vendor Bluemall:

Bluemall has pretty good reviews as an Amazon vendor too
