Today I received my 1800mAh Lithium-Polyner battery for my XDA Exec. The manufacturer claims 11% more load than a standard battery, while still fitting in the standard battery slot, without the need for a thicker cover.

It is cheap as hell (20 euros) and can be found here: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....from=R8&satitle=220016822659&category0=&fvi=1

It's currently charging so tomorrow at the end of the day I should be able to tell how it compares.

So Wiz, how is the battery holding up?

I've used replacement batteries in the past and they all seem to have problems reporting the correct charge. Is this one the same?

Good luck,

Pug.

i bought a 3800mAh battery with black case from expansys. it works flawlessly. the extra thickness is worth the extended battery life. i don't have to pay attention to the battery at all now :) (as long as i charge it every night of course)

Hi.. How thick is the additional bat? Do you think it will still fit the piel frama book type leather case? Im thinking of buying the same from expanys. Good thing I bumped into your post :)

Thanks!

yup it's about an extra 9mm, but my belt case fits it nicely (an old iPAQ 'extended battery' case). the belt case i originally had for it was too tight with the stock battery anyway.

Really? :( Even if I squeeeeze it in? haha.. I was hoping that I can still use my case... I love this case! :)

Ok, I will let you guys know if I was successful in trying to squeeze it in. i will also let you know if I managed to tear / break the case, haha. Thanks!

I don't use any case whenever I'm using the extended battery. Don't try to squeeze it in, i tried it before on my Piel Frama case, u will just end up breaking that wonderful case of yours.

Ok then. I'll take that you broke your wonderful case??? :( It's just that I so wanted to still use it despite the bulky battery. Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna order from expansys soon. I'm just checking other sites in case there's a better place to order the extended bat. I'd love to have the lion battery but it's too expensive so I'm settling for the 3800 mAh one.

P.S. I found this "pencil case" that would probably perfectly fit my dopod with the extended bat... BUT (yes, a big but), it's a Barbie pencil case. Sure, im a girl and i'd probably pull it off but still, isn't it a big insult for our fabulous phone? haha..

Hehehe, that's cute! I think the 3800 mah battery is also lithium ion. I understand your praise about the universal. I mean it's a great device, especially the VGA screen (that stands out from the rest of the PPC phone). I bought my extended battery from ebay.

1800mAh battery

The thread has gone somewhat off-topic here. I have used the 1800mah battery for a week or 2 now, and it does deliver the additional 12% :)

It may not be as much as the 3800 battery, but for day to day usage that battery is too thick and heavy anyway. I prefer to keep that one for long business trips or holidays.

The 1800 battery just gives that little extra while allowing the Exec in it's regular case (for me Covertec)

Where did you buy your battery from?the site that i saw that had it they were currently out of stock.I have ordered the other battery but it is huge makes it feel like a gun is in my pocket.The jj is already a monster and to add the extra weight is a ilttle too much.

As the seller has a 99.5% positive feedback from 48378 ebayers, i would assume it is as safe as you are going to get! If in doubt, give him a shout - Send a message, i am sure you will get a response fairly quickly?

It does state worldwide shipping and to contact the seller for details.

I got free shipping to the netherlands for that price. Until now it performs admirably. I'll try to run some SPB battery rundown tests this weekend both with the original shipping battery and this 1800mAh li-polymer battery.

PS I didnt notice the 1750 Pdaden batteries until the last post by southernint3l, but from where I am at, the free shipping to the Netherlands beats the $10-$20 shipping I would have to pay from the US hands down.
