Default Extended life eBay 2800mah Epic / Captivate batteries now selling

Search: "Sprint Epic 4G AT&T Samsung Captivate Extended Battery"

It says that the seller is shipping from Texas and the batteries are from China (of course) and that they will soon have additional case models for the pregnant battery.

Interesting.

Someone be a guinea pig ! !

The actual one for the Captivate doesn't go on sale till the 15th of January. The guy selling them has one on his testing it out right now. It doesn't look like the pictured ones.

You have to be careful with these low cost chinese batteries. I got burned when I bought an extended life battery for my acer laptop. Acer wanted $150 for an 8 cell battery but found one on ebay for $65. So I jumped all over it. It charged fine and worked great...one time. The first time I used it I got like 4.5-5 hours on one charge which was correct as I got about 2 hours on the 4 cell stock battery. But the battery only lasted for about 4 or 5 charge cycles and by 10-15 charge cycles it wont even last 1 hour. Buyer beware, you get what you pay for.
