Plug [q] nexus one battery - ???

Hey all,

I have had my Nexus One, since it came out, in fact it was given to me by Google themselves, I love the phone, and thanks to a combination of treating it well, screen protectors and an Otterbox Commuter case it is still in absolute pristine condition and I don't want to part with it. I have also put Cynogen mod on it and a top of he range 32-gig SD card, so it does everything I need.

Also I am on a great sim only contract with 3, and don't want to change it to get a phone from three, when I already love the phone I have.

However the Battery is starting to fade and I need to replace it, and after looking over the web I see that there are a lot of rubbish one's out there and it is very easy to get duped.

So I was wondering if any of you kind folks at XDA developers have had any positive experiences of buying a new battery for the Nexus One.

I would be happy with standard 1400Ma replacement, but would ideally like to increase this a little bit, but don't want to change the back or look of this classic phone in anyway.

I would like to thank you for you time in this matter, and look forward to hearing your lively replies.

Kind Regards - Ashe.

Mugen or anker, most everything else is subpar

Hey thanks for the reply, much appreciated, however any chance you could post me a link to a reputable dealer, and do either mugen or anker do a battery that fits under my original cover but has a genuine greater capacity than, the stock 1400Ma Battery,

Kind Regards Ashe

I would just check eBay or amazon, there is plenty of security there. And yes both out perform the oem and are the same size

Thanks Old Sport, have ordered a 1600Ma Mugen off Ebay, hoping to get a little better battery time off this one than the original, and that after I upgrade my ROM to Kit Kat, it will give my phone at least another 18 months of serviceable life, (really don't like the current crop of giant, android phones, always thought that the Nexus one was the perfect size compromise as well as a design classic)

Kind Regards - Ashe
