BANISH BOGUS BATTERY'S! How To Test In One Easy STEP!
Batteries, batteries everywhere and yet not an amp hour to spare. Tiny brains draining power, to die so soon - despair!
THE LIES WE TELL OURSELVES
The posters initial claims of " I got 50 hours of moderated use! " is sure to degenerate into " umm well it was cheap and it will make a good backup battery at least. " How can you respond to that? I mean, I for one was pulling for the guy to best the odds... What response could be appropriate... "Hey, don't move let me kick you in the head while your down".... Just doesn't seem nice.
The Samsung captivate came with a 1500 mAh oem battery... a 1800 mAh oem was latter released for a sister phone and while a little thicker than the original, it still fit into the captivate original back and all... Sweet!
A MOTHERS LOVE
The problem is that for most of us battery testing is too subjective to provide useful information. My "moderate use" is your "heavy"... It's as useful as comparing how much our mothers love us.
So what can we do? How can you objectively test your new ebay battery and immediately know you got ripped off? Well my friend you put it on a gram scale. Let me show you how this works using the two aforementioned captivate batteries(# 1.. 1500 and #2. 1800 mAh) , the Samsung oem note battery, and a Hyperion aftermarket battery (#3. 2500 and # 4.. 2600 mAh).
There is a six gram difference between the lower and 300 mAh higher capacity Samsung batteries, a finding consistent with expectations. The slight increase in the volume of the #2 battery also indicates that the energy density for both of them is much the same... Now on to the S-note batteries!
The Samsung battery weighs a full ten grams more than its higher rated Hyperion replacement. Its lighter weight simply does not pack the mass to back up its big claims... It comes as no surprise that few long term users of the Hyperion are claiming the better than stock battery results they should experience, given manufacturer claims...
You can objectively test inflated power claims by aggressive aftermarket battery manufacturers.
Use a simple gram scale to help quantify the potential of battery claims. If you really want to nail it down use a vacuum packer seal the battery and measure its volume through displacement..Bonus, save the results and your kid has his/her next science fair project!
