I seriously doubt it. Most likely fakes.

Ok I just received my 3500mAh eBay battery today. I bought the Battery Monitor Widget Pro app and. I charged the device to 99% and am currently discharging using the 'MAX' method.

So it's as simple and charging it then discharging it a few times? and when will the avg mAh appear? (after 1 discharge / charge?). I really want to contribute, but i'm kind of confused by the method displayed on the first post.

Thanks,
Louis

yes just discharge it to as close to 1% as possible and charge it to 100% (must let it charge all the way to 100%/green light), then unplug and use the phone to about 95% and check the calibration screen.
the 3x cycles basically just to ensure that you are getting a steady/accurate result (sometime something can skew the numbers high or low)

What part of the instruction are you confused on? I'm all for making it more clear/easy to understand and any feedback will be appreciated

Thanks I understand it now (thanks given)

I didnt understand the 2% thing:

"I can get mine to about 2% with the 3500mah by plugging in, restarting the phone and unplugging while its starting till it auto shut off again, and repeating about 2 or 3 times"

It's just a bit confusing. And the formatting of it it's too close. If you can space out each step it would be great.

ok

The larger the charge range the more accurate result will be,
pay attention to when your phone auto-shutoff is it at 5%? 3%? if after auto shutoff you force/trick the phone to turn on you can make the phone get to a lower % state, I can usually get my phone to 2% or 1%, although once purely by accident when i started the phone back up it was actually at 0% :eek:

but don't try to over do it, as too low can damage Li-ion battery


Pretty busy in the office lately, I'll re do the formatting and the google spreadsheet thing once I have a chance

----

Update putted up a google spreadsheet and re-format the first post a little to make it easier to read

Ok I got my result and it came to this:



Not as impressive as yours :/ I think that with more runs I could have got a higher score.

hmm that strange

1) try using the force power up trick to get to 2% battery left

2) you did not do the after 100% charge, use phone till 95% step

3) did you delete battery history from before?
