Default New battery

Hello all,

Just a quick question, I ordered a new battery the other day (2450 mAh) and it only charges to 80% before saying it is full. I'm sure that even though I'm on stock kernel I should be able to run a larger battery, so I'm assuming the battery is faulty.

Could anybody give me clarification on the biggest battery size you can run on stock kernel?

I lot of the 'unbranded' batteries with optimistic power capacities have no regulations around what they state the 'real' usable mAh life of the battery is.
I'd be very surprised if the battery gives you longer usage than your original 1700mAh battery.
I'm guessing it'll probably be considerably less.

There is no limit to battery capacity within the limits of what you can physically fit into the recess provided for the BA900 battery.

Mugen Power can only get a 1900mAh battery in that size... so that's something to consider when you think about a 2450mAh battery.
