THE LORD OF THE RINGS TEST
It took me many, many hours of DVD ripping, AVI to 3GP converting and last but not least putting the damn files onto memory cards. But I have successfully been able to put all of "The Lord of The Rings" trilogy onto SD cards (three cards lol 2 x 2GB, 1 x 4GB of different makes) in order to test my theory of whether the aftermarket 2400mAh battery (bought from eBay for 20GBP) has the power to last the duration of the trilogy, or not. Well read below for my findings:
I was first introduced to this theory by the merchant who sold me the battery who quoted that you can watch full length movies with the extra capacity . . . so heres how it went
The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring
First SD card in was my friends 2GB SanDisk Secure Digital Card, I must admit that I did turn off the phone function(s) during the duration of this test in order as to not be disturbed. None the less I watched the entire film, and after it the battery was still charged, so straight onto the next part.
The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers
For this I used my own 4GB Transcend Secure Digital Card. I personally felt that as I was using the extended version of the film that the battery would fail during it, but I was shocked to find that the battery had only drained to 33% by time it had finished! I was desperate to see how long it would go on for in the third and final part
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King
In this part of the test I used my own 2GB SanDisk Secure Digital Card. I knew the poor battery wouldnt last this entire film from the start as it had held it's charge suprisingly well all day, so the movie started and the battery packed in at around the point where Aragorn goes to get the ghost army
it was a real shame as I had enjoyed myslef so far lol
So there you go the 2400mAh battery lasted 7/10ths of the LOTR test. Pretty good I must say.
I know it was quite sad of m but at least now we all know it's capabilities.
Also I have to add that the battery has no memory, therefore after this test it was back to full capacity ofter charging
