I saw one on eBay that works with the captivate stock but it's only 1600MAh.....unless I find a bigger one, I plan on purchasing it in the near future...

Can anyone confirm that this battery fits in the Captivate? It doesn't look like it's the same dimensions at all; however, Ebay pictures are usually never what the end up being, so I could be wrong.

Yeah, I saw those on a few places. 1600 doesn't seem worth it to me. Especially if they cheap out on the battery tech, it could easily be a lower battery life than stock

Good find. I'd be willing to bet it'd work. For ten bucks, I'd say it's worth taking a shot at.....

This one is for the i900 too, and for ten bucks, I'd say it's worth taking a shot at.....Although I do feel wary about the quality and improvement over the stock battery since the price is that low.

I900? It states I9000 galaxy S so I'm assuming its safe and reliable to use with the captivate

ebay has 2x 1500mah batteries plus charging dock for 10 bucks, free chipping. that's what i'm gonna get. i know they're not going to give me more time per battery, but for 10 dollars, i can afford to treat them like semi-disposable batteries, only i can recharge them and have a couple on standby if i need them.

all those expensive $80 (FAT ONES) mugen batteries are a waste of money imho. the 1600 mah are an ever worse ripoff.
you're paying a premium for the privilege of being spared the horror and anguish of schlepping an extra battery around.

THANKFULLY, our batteries are pretty small and thin, so it's really not such a terrible thing.



anyone use the "EXTENDED" batteries before? how much extra life do you get? NOT VERY MUCH.



if i use my phone "normally" with a 1500 mah battery, it lasts the whole day, or around 15 hours for me.
if i use my phone "normally" with a 1600 mah battery, how much longer battery life will i get?

mah = milliamp/hour = milliamp per hour

1500 ma/15 h = 1600 ma/ X h

plug and chug, cross multiply, whatever, SOLVE FOR X hours.....15.999 hours.

WOW! 1600 mah batteries give you just ONE (1) extra hour of battery life.


the cheapest you can find a 1600 mah battery on ebay is $37.99. you can buy THREE (3) 1500mah batteries for $11.99 and free shipping.
i think it's quite simple to see that the "extended batteries" are just not that great an option.

i quite enjoy math. nergasm ;P
